Correction: it has not been a decade since I wrote The DSLR Cinematography Guide, it has been only 6 years!
Canon will have a large presence at Sundance not only via their Canon Creative Studio, open on Main Street January 23-26, but also via the fact that over 20% of the films at the festival were shot using Canon equipment, including O.J.: Made in America, Miles Ahead, Nothing Left Unsaid: Gloria Vanderbilt & Anderson Cooper, The New Yorker Presents, Holy Hell, Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You, and solemates.
Full details on our partnership with Canon:
Canon has partnered with No Film School to launch a new filmmaking podcast out of the Sundance Film Festival, debuting with 10 live episodes recorded on-site at the Canon Creative Studio. The podcast will feature lively interviews with top festival filmmakers including Roberto Schaefer, ASC, AIC (Miles Ahead, Quantum of Solace), Wolfgang Held (Sophie and the Rising Sun, Years of Living Dangerously), Nick Higgins (OJ: Made in America, The Crash Reel), Martina Radwan (Trapped, The Eagle Huntress), Richard Henkels (Author: The JT Leroy Story), Bernardo Britto (Glove, Jacqueline (Argentina)), and Bérénice Eveno (solemates, Verbatim: The Ferguson Case, The Free World).
On Monday, January 25 in the New Frontier Gateway Microcinema, Canon will present a screening and panel in celebration of the 10 year anniversary of the EOS 5D called “A Decade of DSLRs: Creative Minds Talk the Evolution of Hand-Held Filmmaking.” Moderated by Ryan Koo (Founder, No Film School and author, The DSLR Cinematography Guide), cinematographers Bryce Fortner (Too Legit, Portlandia), Tom Hurwitz, ASC (Nothing Left Unsaid: Gloria Vanderbilt & Anderson Cooper), and Joe Passarelli (Anomalisa) will join photographer, director, and Canon Explorer of Light Lauren Greenfield (The Queen of Versailles) and Canon’s Senior Film and Television Advisor Tim Smith in discussing evolution of DSLR filmmaking, with an eye to the future.
