FUSION 2012 Recap

"Well wasn't that a party?!" Fusion 2012 was a fantastic success, and we have a lot of people to thank for that.

First the speakers: Nick Didlick for his informative introduction into DSLR video and all the things that goes into making a video that you may not have even thought about.  Alex Gower-Jackson for his inspiring talk and visuals - they were absolutely breathtaking! Mitch Wood for his introduction and great tips on Adobe Premier Pro. Ben Hutchinson for his overview of all the great Lensbaby optics and accessories, and finally Kirk Neff for both his talks, and for sharing his work which was touching and often eye opening! We have had so many great comments back from the attendees.

I want to thank all the exhibitors that made a great effort to be at Fusion 2012 (some even traveling from the eastern United States to be here): Nikon Canada, Canon Canada, Profoto (Blazes), Adobe, Amplis, Cinevate, Beachtek, Sennheiser, Lensbaby,  Steadicam (Tiffen), Panasonic, Wacom, Sunbounce, NEC, K5600 Lighting, Dominion Lending, Langara College, and VanArts.  There would be no Fusion show with out their support and presence. Thank you all for being there and showing all your great products and services.

Thanks to the staff that helped out from receiving all the extra shipments and especially to those who put in so many extra hours up-to and including the 16 hours on the day of the show: Angie, Carol, Mike, Jason, Simon, Kathy, and Tracey - there is no way it would have worked without you.

Finally, a big thanks to the over 275 of you who attended. You've helped make Fusion 2012 our biggest event ever! Send us your comments and let us know what you liked and what you would like to see at Fusion 2013, since tickets go on sale next week ........ just kidding. It would also be a great idea to send an email to the exhibitors who were there to let them know how much you enjoyed Fusion 2012.

Here is a list of the winners of some of the door prizes.


Finally I want to invite you to have a look at a time lapse that our own Mike Mander produced of Fusion 2012 from the setup to the take-down. It really shows how rocking this event was. Enjoy!
