London Filter Company host ARRI Open House at Tiffen HQ at Pinewood
The London Filter Company (a division of Tiffen International Ltd) recently collaborated with GTC sponsors ARRI to host a successful Open House event behind closed doors at Pinewood Studios.
This was the first of six such events planned for 2015 and attracted over 50 professional users including DOPs, directors and producers, keen to get their hands on the latest equipment in a unique and intimate environment.
Guests at the event arrived throughout the day to get 'hands on' with a large range of ARRI cameras and ARRI/Zeiss lenses including their Master Anamorphics, lens control systems and matte boxes.
"The idea of teaming up with Tiffen for this particular event allowed people to use Tiffen’s wonderful array of glass filters with the newer studio matte boxes SMB-1 and SMB-2 and lightweight matte boxes LMB-25 and LMB-6."
Mark Dollery, Business Development Manager – ARRI
Tiffen international built an impressive space including Lowel lighting, a comprehensive range of top-end Steadicams to fly the cameras and a Softdrop from Rosco.
Visitors were also offered the opportunity to try new Tiffen pre-release sample filters including the new Black Pearlescent, Black Soft FX and Black GlimmerGlass filters, which were on hand throughout the event.
"The atmosphere created by the informal approach both companies took allowed our visitors to feel very comfortable and not rushed in any way. This atmosphere made it stand out from other events."
