Not only are we getting deep into trade show season but also the award ceremonies have well and truly kicked off, love ‘em or hate ‘em the gongs are being handed out to the good and the great in all walks of life. In the same way the Olympics and World Cup are the pinnacle of athletic and football accolades then the Oscars is the award that is arguably the most prestigious and widely sought after. Although in its 85 year it hasn’t been going quite as long as one of the recipients this year. Notching up over 100 years in the filmmaking business is Cooke Optics receiving an Academy Award ® of Merit (an Oscar ® ) for “continuing innovation” in its motion picture camera lenses. th With an intolerant attitude to intolerances the stunning Cooke lenses have been equally at home in the South Pole with Scott and Shackleton as they were at the top of Everest and more recently at Royal weddings. Since the beginning of our industry Cooke have been there and we should raise a glass to them for their innovation and passion in creating first class optics, proudly produced in Leicester, UK where generations of the same family work side by side. You can read more about Cooke on page 70. So what better month for this award to coincide with than our lenses and acquisition issue – it’s as if we planned it! Within this tv-bay Magazine you’ll find a wealth of information covering lenses, grip and lighting – if you watched the most recent BroadcastShow LIVE virtual set special then the green screen lighting article on page 76 was our bible for the studio set-up day!
