South by Southwest Creative Industries Expo returns as in-person event, and the ZEISS Cinematography Team will be attending. Find them in Booth 433, at the Austin Convention Center, March 13-16.
ZEISS Cinema Americas will be attending and supporting this year’s South by Southwest Creative Industries Expo, the first in-person in three years, and the ZEISS Cinematography Team will be at the show previewing new tech at their exhibit booth, presenting a panel discussion with SXSW film finalists, sponsorship of the ZEISS Cinematography Award, and hosting a let-your-hair down networking party at a local watering hole.
ZEISS will display its hallmark line of motion picture lenses including Supreme Prime, Supreme Prime Radiance, Cinema Zoom lenses and more in Booth 433. Attendees will have the opportunity to pose questions about the award-winning glass which was used on several of the films screening at the conference.
Visitors can talk one on one with the ZEISS Cinema team, including renowned lens experts Snehel Patel, Anna Schmidt and David Warner. A top authority on the growing field of lens metadata, Patel will discuss the current state of the art and hint at what’s upcoming from ZEISS to enhance workflow from acquisition through post and effects work.
According to the organizers of the show, all credentialed SXSW participants, including registrants and wristband holders, will be required to provide proof of a completed primary vaccination series against Covid-19 or a recent negative Covid-19 test in order to collect and maintain their credentials. SXSW will accept all vaccines approved by the CDC for travel to the US. Attendees are highly encouraged to receive a booster vaccination, if eligible.
