Thanks to Charles Papert's fantastic creative efforts, and the overwhelming popularity of the Great Monitor Shootout in Los Angeles, Alec Jarnegin and I are organizing the event in the New York Area............

So let me be the first to make the announcement......
The Great Monitor Shootout, East Coast Style is being sponsored by the International Cinematographer's Guild, with participation by SOC.
It's going to be at Camera Service Center on Saturday August 22, and we will have 11 monitors on display in 'Rotisserie' style.
We'll be there from 12 noon to 4pm, and, as well as displaying the monitors, we plan on having several of the East Coast's busiest Steadicam operators sit in on a panel and discuss their art and craft.

Lunch and refreshments will be served.

Come see monitors, meet Steadicam pals and see the brand new luxurious Camera Service Center.

Let me know if you are interested and available.

I hope to see all of you there.

I hope to make it. Do I need to sigh up or can I just show up? Do you have all the monitors you need or should we bring what we have?

I'd like to see a rig shoot out where we could see all the different sleds and arms too.

"Do I need to sigh up or can I just show up? Do you have all the monitors you need or should we bring what we have? "

Guys, a few things are still being finalized. We'll have all the monitors. As for signing up? Yes, most likely you'll need to RSVP through Local 600 New York. There is a good chance that they will require a deposit that will be refunded when you show up (no shows in turn forfeit the deposit). Still awaiting final logistics, but we'll list them when we got them.

Thanks everyone!

Okay, here is the official 600 invitation (sorry for the loss of formating)

The International Cinematographers Guild
Presents
The Great East Coast Monitor Shootout

Come and judge for yourself which is the best small screen daylight viewable monitor on the markets.

See the latest and Greatest HD and NTSC monitors side-by-side in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings & get a chance to talk with the Vendors about their products.

Listen to Steadicam Operators discuss their craft and art.

Meet Society of Camera Operators Representatives and learn about the SOC.

Saturday, August 22, 2009
12 Noon to 4 PM
at
Camera Service Center
25 Enterprise Avenue
Secaucus, New Jersey

Lunch and Refreshments will be Provided

There will be seven (7) monitor manufacturers present, with a total of eleven (11) monitors on display. Each company has graciously agreed to come together to show off their products side by side at the new and spectacular Camera Service Center facility in Secaucus, New Jersey. The monitors will be placed on a 'rotisserie' and we will look at their images in various lighting conditions. You will be able to talk to vendors about the 'bells and whistles' of each monitor, and you'll get to see side-by-side, how each monitor performs.

Please RSVP to Robbie Moore at robbie.moore@ipgla.com or call 212-647-7300.
This event is for Steadicam Operators and those who work with them,
but is open to ICG members in good standing

Philip;
The reason we ask for an RSVP is so that we know how much lunch to provide and also to give CSC notice as to how many participants to expect.
So Please RSVP.
We look forward to seeing you there.
