BAND PRO'S ONE WORLD OPEN HOUSE 2016


Band Pro celebrated French Cinema at Band Pro One World Open House 2016.

Each December Band Pro’s One World Open House combines the best broadcast and cinema technology along with fine food, drink, and attendees comprising a who’s who of the global cinematography community.

This year’s guest of honor was acclaimed French director and cinematographer, Pierre-William Glenn, AFC. William Glenn is a former President of the French Society of Cinematographers and known for his work on such films as Truffaut’s Day for Night, Coup de Torchon, and Small Change, among many others.

Band Pro kicked off the French Cinema celebrations at Sony Studios with the screening of a 35mm projection print of the "Novuelle Vague" Oscar winning film "La Nuit Americaine"  (Day for Night) written and directed by François Truffaut and photographed on 35mm Eastmancolor and Panavision cameras and lenses by Pierre-William Glenn, AFC, who attended the screening and participated in a Q&A moderated by Jon Fauer ASC, revisiting the making of the film. (Synopsis: A committed film director struggles to complete his movie while coping with a myriad of crises, personal and professional, among the cast and crew.)
