As we emerge from the extreme challenges brought on by the global pandemic the ZEISS Cinema Lens team continues to build and improve their capabilities across the Americas. They have never stopped actively engaging with the filmmaking community, unveiling new technology, maintaining channels, sponsoring the activities of groups such as DCS, and producing their Studies in Cinematography series with the likes of Greig Fraser, ASC, ACS, Matthew Libatique, ASC and Alice Brooks, ASC.
During the 2020 industry slowdown, ZEISS safely sustained consultancy and demonstration services at their Cinema Lens Demo Center as a resource for cinematographers and ACs. With restrictions now easing, their Los Angeles space provides ample room for safe in-person lens demos and educational seminars. All this activity calls for an even more robust team. After a comprehensive search, Head of Cinema Sales Snehal Patel is eager to welcome the renowned Jean-Marc Bouchut to the ZEISS family as Zeiss’ Director of Cinema Sales, building out the ZEISS presence on the East coast by providing support to cinematographers and crews from the New York office. Visitors to the Los Angeles headquarters can also meet another addition to the team, Anna Schmidt, who will support ZEISS’ marketing activation and educational events working with Tony Wisniewski, Senior Manager of Marketing.
