The Energa Camerimage in Torun, Poland, is The annual rendez-vous of the International community of Directors of Photography. Every year, students from Film Schools also join the 9-day event to have the opportunity to meet their peers, attend masterclasses, round tables, discover the latest cinema technology and watch the movie selection. Students from La Femis, the prestigious French school, attended the 2021 edition, in collaboration with Angénieux. After experiencing the most of everything the festival had to offer, they are very keen to share with us their impressions as the next generation of DPs.
This past year was like a box of chocolates — we never knew what we were going to get. In this post, Emmanuel Sprauel, president of Angénieux, reflects on this uncertainty and how it impacted the film industry and our company. Now looking forward with renewed positivity to the Cannes Film Festival as official partners for the 8th consecutive year, we know 2 things we will certainly get: the full Optimo Prime Series and the celebration of Agnès Godard at the Pierre Angénieux Tribute ceremony.
Director of Photography Robbie van Brussel chose the OPTIMO PRIME series for a commercial shot with Director Philip de longh, for the famous lingerie brand Hunkemöller. The commercial was broadcasted on Dutch TV recently. On Instagram, Hunkemöller’s self-definition as a brand is “empowering women to be their most beautiful self”. Color accuracy, skin tone respect, realistic images with no distortion….all good reasons to use Angénieux lenses for a commercial for this brand.
December 12, 2020, Teatro Regio di Parma, famous Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli performed an exclusive worldwide livestream concert, which ended up being the most successful online ticketed classical events of all times, selling to over 120 countries worldwide.
Finding a lens that meets today’s film demands can prove to be a good investment for any filmmaker. For those who wish to recreate atmospheres of bygone eras, or create the vibes of a future world, the Angénieux Type EZ lenses are a good companion to have for achieving a high-quality cinematic look and feel.
