On our way to In-and-Out Burger, Ross’ foot started giving him fits. BOOM! Stress fracture. Before NAB. That totally sucked but he handled it like a champ! We made a quick trip to the hotel to get checked in and then headed to the 3535 Las Vegas Cocktail Bar for the Shane’s Inner Circle / Cinematographer’s Insight Meetup.
THIS WAS TOTALLY AWESOME! We’ve been a part of Shane’s Inner Circle and Cinematographer’s insight for years now. There are facebook groups for each membership, thus throughout the years, we’ve made a LOT of friends online, yet haven’t had the chance to meet in person until this event. Some are dear friends we made years ago who were at the event as well. Met so many great guys and gals and made even more connections. Some of them were Rob Ruscher, Ryan Avery, David Weldon, Tim Daust, Scott Balkum, Marc Bryan, Illya Friedman, Jorel O’del, and many many more. After that, we were pretty pooped and wanted a good day at NAB so we headed back to the hotel to get some sleep.
Again, Holy crap, where do we even start? We headed to the show floor and immediately started running into guys and gals we’ve known for years through facebook. We ran into Adam Forgione of Pennylane Productions at the Canon Booth. Then from there we headed STRAIGHT to the Tokina Booth to check out what was up!
