Students selected by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences for its Gold internship program were hosted by Panavision at their global headquarters in Woodland Hills. The Academy’s annual diversity and inclusion initiative includes workshops, networking events, and studio and technology-based company tours, in addition to summer internships at participating companies. Panavision has been a supporter of the program since its inception three years ago.
Students began their day with an optics presentation by lens guru Dan Sasaki. He explained how the eye sees using depth cues and the aesthetic characteristics of anamorphic lens technology, among other insights. The students were treated to an exclusive tour of the manufacturing and prep zones. To wrap up the day, multi-Emmy® nominee Michael Goi, ASC presented a lighting workshop. Goi discussed the thought process and considerations for setting the mood of a scene, using the DXL2 and zooms lenses, and answered questions from the aspiring students.
