Definition deals with tech innovation all day and the application of it within production. We are in awe of the some of the technical achievement we see and wanted to celebrate the fact by highlighting some of the best tech out there across all production disciplines.
We have now identified the categories that we want to spotlight for these awards - see these below. Soon, we will be announcing the shortlist in each category with winners being presented with their awards at Cine Gear LA at the end of May.
As a parallel track you will also be allowed to vote for your favourite from those shortlists, and instructions of how to do so will be published soon. Keep an eye on our social media feeds @definitionmags and also look out for #DEFINITIONINNOVATION.
