The Rental Dilemma… – and no way out?

(Confidential background discussion and lunch snack with member companies – on special invitation)

In a moderated discussion behind closed doors, the focus will be on the current situation in the German rental market and ways to improve opportunities and margins for rental companies. How does price dumping or volume dumping take revenge? Why does confrontation damage the reputation of all parties involved? How can constructive approaches be found and developed? Why does cannibalisation in rental harm manufacturers and suppliers?
Open discussion – moderated by the Managing Director of BVK.

Understanding and using HDR

In association with BandPro

Using the possibilities of HDR (High Dynamic Range) in production is still associated with fears and reservations among some DoPs. There is no rational reason for this – you just have to take a serious look at the system. The workshop with Christian Saure AAC/BVK & Felix Huesken AAC/BVK offers two opportunities for this on each of the two ECE days. Watch, listen, understand.

Artificial Intelligence and Cinematography – Basic Tools, Chances and Risks

Felix Huesken AAC/BVK/CSI

Great expectations and many fears accompany the penetration of AI into the field of moving image production. Currently,there are discussions everywhere about what this means for the work in our industry. Felix Huesken BVK works as a colourist and is intensively involved with the phenomenon of AI and its applications in film. In his lecture and presentation, he shows that AI can already do a lot today, but that the function of the DoP is by no means obsolete when it comes to the visual telling of stories or the observation of real events.
