Discussions of Technology and Craft at AbelCine's 25 Year Event in LA

Last month we celebrated our 25th anniversary as a company with a party at our LA location. Over 400 people attended the event, which included raffles, a silent auction, a Phantom Photo Booth, lunch and a bar, as well as a number of panel discussions on different topics, from technology to craft.

For those who weren't able to attend (or for those who'd like to revisit one of their favorites), we recorded some of the panels and made them available to watch below.

Intro image for article Jonathan Barenboim Stays Flexible with the Canon C300 Mark II
Client Profiles
Jonathan Barenboim is a director and cinematographer; sometimes, depending on the project, he's both simultaneously. On his latest project, for a series called The Table launching later this summer, he was tasked with bringing to life short documentaries highlighting the human side of the unemployment crisis in the US. Because of the documentary nature of these pieces, he had to be ready to travel quickly and shoot in varied locations, all with the same basic camera setup. Jonathan was kind enough to answer a few questions about how he pulled it all off.
