Valhalla, N.Y., April 1, 2019 – Fujifilm/FUJINON is thrilled to announce the return and lineup of its popular NAB Show Speaker Series. The series, which features a mix of individual speakers and panels, will take place at booth C7225 (Central Hall) on Monday (10:30-4:30) and Tuesday (10:00-4:30) of the show. Sessions commence every two hours and last approximately thirty minutes.

Headlining the series is award-winning filmmaker, DP Philip Bloom, who has drawn massive crowds to his talks for the past two years. During Bloom’s session, “A New Era in Affordable Zoom Lenses,” he shares his experiences, takeaways, tips and tricks for navigating the world of cine lenses, focusing particularly on FUJINON’s affordable MK 18-55mm and 50-135mm cine zooms. Attendees can catch Bloom’s talk on Monday, April 8, where he’ll bookend the schedule at 10:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., and again Tuesday, April 9 at 12:00 p.m.

Monday’s lineup also features Motion Picture Still Photographer Melinda Sue Gordon, SMPSP, whose recent credits include Dunkirk, Battle of the Sexes, and Concussion, with her 12:00 p.m. session, “Set Still Photography, Documenting Performance & Process.” Following that will be a panel discussion, “A Clearer Vision, the House of Worship and the Arrival of 4K.” Moderated by Fujifilm/FUJINON’s resident church expert Bret Shisler, the conversation will feature panelists John Pipes, Director of Media, Joyce Meyer Ministries, as well as Bryan Bailey, Director of Media, and Bryan Williford, Content Creator, both of Prestonwood Baptist Church.

Tuesday will start with the 10:00 a.m. panel discussion, “The Future of Sports Imaging,” moderated by Sports Video Group’s Ken Kerschbaumer, featuring panelists Dan Turk, Chief Engineer, US Mobile Units, NEP and Marc Orgera, Vice President and General Manager, F&F Productions. At a time when live sports production professionals have more demands and options than ever when it comes to choosing the right camera and lens, the discussion will explore the need for top-quality glass brought on by new delivery formats; what characteristics top level sports production professionals are looking for in a lens; the importance of HDR, longer zoom functionality, sensitivity, and resolution; and whether one can compromise as home viewers become increasingly demanding.

Following Philip Bloom at 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday will be cinematographer Tom Curran, who DPd the hit Netflix series, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. Curran’s 2:00 p.m. session “How to Spark Cinematic Joy in Tight Spaces on Tight Schedules for Netflix” will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the tools he used to successfully navigate filming a fast-moving (one-take), unscripted docu-series in extremely cramped spaces. Wrapping up the speaker series at 4:00 p.m. will be award-winning director, DP and author of The DSLR Filmmaker’s Handbook: Real-World Production Techniques, Barry Andersson with, “When and Why Is It Better to Shoot with a Real Cinema Zoom?”

The Fujifilm/FUJINON booth (C7225) will heavily showcase how 4K lenses deliver a better 1080P HDR signal compared to HD lenses. Several new lenses from Fujifilm’s Optical Devices Division—both broadcast and cinema—will make be seen for the first time at the show, as well.
