Two experts from the International Cinematographers Guild (ICG, IATSE Local 600) will be on hand at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences NAB Show booth (C9132) on Tuesday morning, April 14, at 9:30 a.m., as education partners with the Academy’s ACES program (the Academy Color Encoding System). Director of Photography Theo Van de Sande, ASC, and Digital Imaging Technician and DI Colorist Bobby Maruvada will be explaining how the system works.

Van de Sande was recently nominated for a ASC Award for Outstanding Achievement in Cinematography for John Amiel’s Deliverance Creek, which was produced entirely with an ACES workflow. After working on more than 25 features in his native Holland, he moved to Los Angeles and has worked on more than 30 features since then.

Maruvada has spent the last three decades bridging the worlds of production and post-production. After many years as an underwater photographer, he began work as a telecine colorist on feature films and soon expanded his palette to include DI work. He has worked with DPs' Peter Schusitsky, Seamus McGarvey and Vilmos Zsigmond.

The ICG will also be conducting a tour of selected NAB Show booths on Monday, April 13 at 2:45 p.m., under the guidance of camera technologist Andy Romanoff in concert with Stephen Lighthill, ASC. The theme of the tour is “Innovations in Acquisition.”

As part of NAB Show's Keynote Creative Master Series, Tom Stern, ASC, AFC, the cinematographer of Oscar®-winning film American Sniper, will discuss Heroes, Legends and American Sniper” with moderator David Geffner, Executive Editor of ICG Magazine in South Hall, Room 220 on April 14 from 1:45 p.m. to 2:45 p.m.

ICG’s cocktail reception, co-hosted by Band Pro, will be held between their adjacent booths (C10306 and C10408) on April 13, starting at 5 p.m.
