written by Shane Hurlbut, ASC

I am so pumped to be at NAB this year.  I have not been since 2013.  Feature after feature took me around the globe and I could not connect with all of you.


Meet & Greet: SUNDAY, 4/23/17 at 7:00pm, Vesper Bar @ the Cosmopolitan Hotel

We have an exciting line up of knowledge being shared at NAB this year.  I wanted to break it down for you and give you some insider information.  We are having a huge meet up Sunday Night, 4/23/17, at the Vesper Bar in the Cosmopolitan Hotel at 7:00pm.  This is a great opportunity for you to come and enjoy great conversation and meet many of our Inner Circle members.  If you are not a member, you are welcome to join us.  This community is a powerful resource for you to gain access to.  It enables work on all levels, contacts will be shared, phone numbers and email addresses will be exchanged, and great cocktails will be mixed.  

HUGE Door Prize for one lucky winner;  A Top Secret Prize from Blackmagic Design will be raffled off.

Please sign up at this link and I look forward to connecting with each and every one of you!!!

I have many Keynote presentations this year and you can find me at 4 booths this year.  Every presentation will be different so please come and enjoy.

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday – 11:30am Tiffen Booth – C6019

RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/290031848101215/#

Tiffen has been a key player in my success.  They have always been there for me designing great filters from Neutral Density, Diffusion and color grads to name a few.  They have embraced the GIMBAL craze with the use of their famous and ROCK of Gibraltar Steadicam system to deploy a smooth integration to the hand held revolution.  Here is an insider look at what I will be sharing with all of you.  Rules are essential to telling emotional stories.  I will go into the Rules that Gabriele Muccino and I set up to take you on that Roller Coaster ride of EMOTIONS.



Tuesday -2:00pm Freefly Booth – C2922

RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/263227497480981/


Freefly has completely shaken up the shooting Paradigm with the introduction of the MōVI in April 2013.  Once I got this device in my hand in the summer of 2013, it changed the way I block, light, shoot and conceptualize my scenes.  

I will be doing an immersive, hands on experience at the FreeFly booth with all the tools that I deploy to immerse you and emotionally connect your audience with WHY you move the camera .  30’ Technocranes, Pole Dancing, Dolly Rigs, Trapeze Artists and much more will be on display.  Come join us in understanding moving the camera is not just because you CAN; there is a thought process behind every decision.



Monday -3:00pm  HUGE GIVEAWAY MusicBed Booth – C547

RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/1754910471466690/


MusicBed has been a huge partner in delivering immense quality to the content that we produce on theHurlblog.com, as well as shanesinnercircle.com.  We have been collaborating together for over 6 years now and I am constantly blown away with the talent of their artists.  They seem to know exactly what you will need to add that emotional impact to your story, teaser and commercial.  THEY JUST GET IT!!!!!  

At 3:00pm on Monday, we will be giving away a huge prize with an interview after, please come and take advantage of this opportunity to meet.

Well, there you have it.  I hope to see you at the many parties as well.  These events like NAB and Cinegear really fuel my innovation, my dreams, and add tools that will go in my quiver.  

Let’s have a Rocking, inspirational WEEK in VEGAS.  

Remember what Happens in Vegas stays in Vegas my friends.  HA HA!!!!!
