Los Angeles, Cannes, Berlin. There are many cities in the world associated with important events in the film industry. In most cases, the films, actors and directors are the center of attention. Seldom is the spotlight on the people who work with the cameras and lenses. Not so in Jena, Germany. With the Cine Lens Day, ZEISS has created a special event that focuses on these professionals and their needs.
This was the fifth edition of the Cine Lens Day, and it didn’t take place just anywhere. By staging it in Jena from November 13-14, 2013, ZEISS chose to hold its event in the birthplace of the optics industry. And when ZEISS calls, they come: more than 120 directors of photography, rental experts and other partners from 25 countries including Japan, India, China and the United States, showed up in cozy Jena. Among them were well-known names from the film industry, including Denny Clairmont, owner of Hollywood’s largest rental firm, and many internationally active DOPs including Stijn van der Veken, Tom Fährmann and Maher Maleh, who came to share their perspective as users of ZEISS cine lenses.
