- Canon: Special Canon Cinema EOS Presentation: ALEX BUONO, NBC's Saturday Night Live Film Unit
ALEX BUONO, one of Canon's Explorers of Light and 12-year veteran Director of Photography for NBC's Saturday Night Live Film Unit, will command the SuperMeet stage! Join Alex for an engaging show and tell on Alex's work with Canonís 5D Mark II and 7D cameras as well as the new Canon EOS C300 - Alex will screen his work, including the network debut of the Canon EOS C300 - an SNL parody commercial, Chantix.

About Alex Buono
Born in Portland, Oregon, Alex Buono moved to Los Angeles in 1991 to attend the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, majoring in film production and still photography. His early post-collegiate years were spent on the camera crews of studio films including Twister, Conspiracy Theory, and Armageddon, learning from top ASC cinematographers and personal mentors including Conrad Hall, Don Burgess, Dean Cundey and John Schwartzman. Soon after, Alex became a full-time cinematographer of indie films, music videos, and as the Director of Photography for the Saturday Night Live Film Unit. In 2003, Alex received an Oscar Nomination for the short film Johnny Flynton, which he photographed and also produced. Alex repeated the dual role of cinematographer and co-producer on Green Street Hooligans, about Londonís football-gang subculture starring Elijah Wood and Charlie Hunnam, which won both the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at the 2005 South By Southwest Film Festival. He was also the cinematographer of Shanghai Kiss, shot in China and starring Hayden Panettiere. Following, Alex wrote, produced and shot the documentary feature Bigger Stronger Faster*, which premiered in competition at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival and was distributed theatrically by Magnolia Pictures. In 2009, Alex's 10th season with Saturday Night Live marked his first experimentation with the new HDSLR format, shooting the show's title sequence and most of the season's commercial parodies with Canonís 5D Mark II and 7D cameras. Alex continued his experimentation with Canon DSLRs as the 2nd Unit director/DP of the pilot for the ABC drama series Detroit 187. Most recently, Alex shot the network debut of the new Canon EOS C300 - an SNL parody commercial, Chantix. Alex is a member of the Writer's Guild of America, the International Documentary Association and the International Cinematographer's Guild. He lives in Venice, California where he continues to write, produce, and shoot for his production company, Third Person, and is represented by Hyphen Management.

- MATROX: " The One Tool I Can't Live Without" - Curt Pair
Most of us are in this business because we are storytellers.  We have a vision and wish to share it with the world.  Often technology can hamper the creative process of sharing of our saga due to various challenges.  Join Curt Pair as he shares the pitfalls he avoided during the production of "Taken," on the A&E network, as both a Director of Photography and on site editor, by using the one tool he can't live without: Matrox MXO2 LE with MAX technology.

About Curt Pair
Curt Pair has captured all walks of life, from news to sports, corporate to documentary, music videos to behind the scenes, indies to feature films. With a passion for telling compelling stories and news skills that are second to none, Curt’s work has taken him all over the US and the world.
He has been capturing images on film, videotape, and now HD media for 25 years.  His work has appeared on every major television outlet for the last 20 years. In 1999, he founded Picture This Productions, Inc., whose list of clients include ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox Sports, ESPN, America’s Most Wanted, The Golf Channel, The PGA Tour, NBA Entertainment, A&E, Discovery, TLC (the Learning Channel), National Geographic, Turner, Oprah, Dr. Phil, Taco Bell, Walgreens and more.  Chances are if you’ve watched TV, you’ve seen Curt’s work. 

Recently, Curt has stepped beyond the world of HD acquisition and post to the world of 4K, 5K and beyond!  He captures his vision with Red Epic, Sony F65 and Arri Alexa cinema cameras.

- "Fotoshop" - Jesse Rosten
"I was watching TV one sleepless night and stumbled upon an infomercial for some beauty product. The commercial showed before and after portraits, that to my eye, looked like the same photo just photoshopped. I laughed to myself. Then I made this video."

About Jesse Rosten
Jesse Rosten is a filmmaker currently based out of Northern California. Jesse really dislikes talking about himself in third person, but would be more than happy to talk to you in first person.
