Come and Capture: Choosing the Right Camera for You and Your Project

#sxsw #CandCSXSW


Ever feel a little bit like Goldilocks in the world of cameras? Wandering among all of your options in an attempt to figure out which one is “just right” for you? Just like the age-old tale, filmmakers today need to know how to examine their choices and not settle for something that doesn’t suit their needs.

Join modern-day Goldilocks, Bob Caniglia, as he examines and tests the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, Blackmagic Cinema Camera and Blackmagic Production Camera 4K. Bob will discuss the cameras’ features, different applications, use cases and production and post production workflows, and will explain how to find the camera that’s “just right” for you.

Bob began working in the film and television industry in 1985 as a part-time cameraman and editor on industrial videos. Bob finished school at night while working full time as a commercial producer/director at a local CBS affiliate. Eventually, Bob found himself in L.A. as an editor for The Disney Channel and 525 Post Production, later working on music videos for Prince, Madonna and Michael Jackson. Bob also helped Gore Verbinski with his director demo reel, telling him that he would be a feature film director someday.

Leveraging his real-world industry experience, Bob made the transition to working with a variety of production and post production manufacturers, including Panasonic, Quantel, Snell, DaVinci Systems and Blackmagic Design, where he currently holds the position of Senior Regional Manager, Eastern US.

Ever the creative type, Bob is a professional comedian performing around the world under the stage name Bobby Zee. He also has a love for karaoke that just won’t quit.
