Just a quick note: The DCS meeting in San Francisco this Tuesday (yes: this coming Tuesday!) will focus on the Arri Alexa. The meeting will be at BlueSky Studios from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. Read on for details…
Michael Bravin, Arri’s VP for Market Development, will show off a prototype Alexa, discuss its design and internal workings, and screen demo clips shot with it.
He arrives in SF Monday afternoon, where he’ll hook up with Director Ian McCamey and PVC’s stunningly good looking writer / DP Art Adams, along with Assimilate’s star Colorist Lucas Wilson. This crew will shoot a spec spot that very evening and expect to have it cut, graded, and ready to show Tuesday night, courtesy of the Alexa’s DTE (direct-to-edit) capability: 1920×1080 ProRes444 recorded on SxS cards.
BlueSky will also show off their robotic lighting system, LightGrid, a pretty cool self-positioning strobe system for stills shooting.
The meeting will be held at BlueSky Rental Studios, 2325 3rd Street Suite 434, San Francisco CA 94107. Doors open at 5pm; demo from 6pm to 10pm.

FTC Disclaimer: I’m a member of the Digital Cinema Society. I know Michael Bravin, Art Adams, and Ian McCamey, and I will probably shoot “making of” stills and/or clips of the spec spot production Monday night. However, I have no material connection with Arri or with BlueSky, and I haven’t been offered any payments or other blandishments to mention this meeting.
