The opening of the new offices in Burbank, the heart of the TV and film production community was a long time goal for Sigma. Filmmakers and cinematographers are invited to the Grand Opening, November 3.
The new Sigma offices in Burbank offer a modern space for the company to showcase its products and offer services and support to the TV and film production community. Visitors can experience first-hand the popular Sigma Cine and Global Vision lenses through product demonstrations, seminars and special events.
“Having a physical presence in the greater Los Angeles area has long been a vision of ours. The new west coast Sigma center has been years in the making and to finally open it to the public is very exciting,” said Kazuto Yamaki, CEO of Sigma Corporation. “We are thrilled to be a part of this creative community, and we look forward to the new relationships Sigma will develop with filmmakers and cinematographers, right in their backyard.”
