Sim Tech Fair a Huge Success

January 24, 2011

Toronto’s Camera Operators, DP’s, Editors and Technicians jammed both floors of exhibits at the “Sim Technology Open House” last Thursday. The exhibits featured; Data Management, Cameras & Lenses, Lighting and Grip along with Post Production hardware and software.

Ensuring the audience forgot about how cold it is this month, belly dancers were provided to act as on-camera test subjects at the event, courtesy of the Arabesque Dance Company.

Kudos are in order, TO411 says: thanks to the staff and management at Sim for stepping up to lead off the first of a string of production and technology events coming up over the next several weeks.
