NORMAN HOLLYN (1952-2019) - EDITOR/EDUCATOR/SUPPORTER/AUTHOR

We here at the Los Angeles Post Production Group are deeply saddened by the news of the passing of our dear colleague, Norman Hollyn. We know Norman has touched many, many of our members through his presentations, his filmwork, his books and his friendship. Even as Norman was the inaugural holder of the Michael Kahn Endowed Chair in Editing at USC, he was completely approachable and enjoyed discussions with people of all walks of life about filmmaking and the industry. Norman will be sorely missed in our community and the filmmaking community at large.

His generosity and his support of the Los Angeles Post Production Group over the years has been inspiring and has touched us deeply. Between his live presentation in 2011 of the web series 2 REEL Guys with Larry Jordan Norman to his most recent presentation in 2017 on AI (highlight video), Norman's knowledge and passion always created memorable evenings at the LAPPG. One of the highlights for us was to have Norman on board as a champion and a judge for our film festival, LA Post Fest (judges video). We will always remember and appreciate Norman's consistant support and generous heart.

ZEISS OPENS THEIR FIRST-EVER CINEMA LENS SHOWROOM IN LA

 
EXCERPTED FROM PRODUCTIONHUB.COM

A New Destination for Cinematographers features a Complete Lineup of ZEISS lenses, a Camera Prep Area, Lens Projection Bay, Lounge & 4K HDR Theater.
 
 


On March 29th, at 1:00 PM in Los Angeles, ZEISS opened its doors to the industry for its brand-new Cinema Lens Demo Center in L.A. — a first of its kind for the popular and historic lens company.

Right at the start, a crowd of working cinematographers and industry influencers shuffled in to check out the new and buzzed-about space.  Attendees found the Cinema Lens Demo Center to be a state-of-the-art and spacious facility, featuring everything a Director of Photography could want – including an elegant showcase of ZEISS lenses, a camera prep area, lens projection bay, lounge, and an amazing 4K HDR theater. Located on the 8th floor, it also features impressive views of the Hollywood Hills.
 

 
On display were the new, high-end Supreme Prime lenses, fitted on a variety of top go-to cinematography cameras including the ARRI ALEXA LF, SONY VENICE, and RED MONSTRO.  Also, available for image-makers to check out were the ZEISS Compact Prime lenses, its Cinema Zoom glass offering, and its family of photo/cine lenses: Batis, Loxia, Otus & Milvus lenses. These were fitted to cameras like the Panasonic EVA-1, and Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro.
 
The mastermind of the new showroom and ZEISS Cine Sales Manager Snehal Patel remarked, “We are so excited to show everyone this new space and provide a home for cinematographers in L.A. and beyond to come and find the very best solutions for their project needs. The Showroom has been in the works for a while and to open our doors today to all our friends in the industry is so gratifying.  It’s great to see so many DP friends come out today for the launch — and we’ll be using this space for educational events in the weeks and months to come.”

For Angelenos, Cinema Lens Demo Center is located in Sherman Oaks, perfectly central for filmmakers who live on the east side, west side, downtown, or in the Valley.
