AbelCine Chicago Open House
Friday, 09 October 2015
To celebrate the opening of our brand new Chicago Learning Point, you’re invited to join us on Saturday, November 7 from 10 am – 6pm for a day full of panel discussions, giveaways, food, drinks, and the chance to connect with your colleagues.
Our new Chicago facility is located on the lot at Cinespace Film Studios and features a fully appointed sales showroom offering camera, audio, and lighting gear from every major production equipment manufacturer, as well as a 90-seat, multi-use training center.
Industry Panels & Discussions
A distinguished group of production professionals will be taking part in discussions on how changing technologies have affected their approach to the craft, as well as their experiences working in the Chicago production community. Panelists will include DPs from major shows shooting right on the Cinespace lot, as well as operators, ACs, editors and more. There will also be ample time for audience questions.
» Schedule of Events
Equipment will be on display throughout the space, providing a closer look at the newest gear from manufacturers including Angenieux, ARRI, Atomos, Canon, Convergent Design, Formatt, Freefly, Fujinon, Manios, Panasonic, Sony, Switronix, Vision Research, Zacuto and Zeiss. AbelCine and manufacturer experts will be on hand to answer any questions.
A very special thank you to our rental house partners who are contributing to our equipment displays: Cineverse, Daufenbach, Keslow, Magnanimous, Schumacher and Zacuto.
Giveaways & Deals on Gear
Our manufacturers have generously donated prizes that we will be giving away throughout the day. Multiple raffles will be held so everyone will get a chance to take home some great new gear.
Plus, guests can get a great deal on packages of overstock, demo, and pre-owned gear in our Silent Auction.
Phantom Photo Booth
Have you ever wondered what you would look like in 4K slow motion? Guests can take their pick of fun props and strike their best poses, all while being filmed with the Phantom Flex4K. The footage will then be played back immediately on one of our 4K monitors, so you can see yourself in action!
Virtual Reality Station
Visit our dedicated VR station and demo some of the latest virtual reality technology, from acquisition solutions to delivery systems such as the Samsung Gear VR.
Food & Refreshments
A celebration isn’t a celebration without food and drink, so we’ll be serving breakfast and lunch along with a selection of beverages (to toast with, of course!) A reception at the end of the day will also feature hors d’oeuvres.
We are excited for you to explore our new space and celebrate with us, so make sure to RSVP today and stay tuned for more information!
