Malcolm Modele about BSC Expo 2024


I am an accomplished filmmaker, Director of Photography (DoP), and IRIX ambassador with over a decade of industry experience. Known for my versatile work, from leading tech commercials to music videos for artists like Sam Fender and Ben Howard and my recent project includes serving as a Steadicam operator and B Unit DoP for the feature film “Dirty Boy,” starring Graham McTavish and Susie Porter.



I attended the BSC Expo recently with IRIX. The BSC Expo in London is a leading event for filmmakers, showcasing the latest in cinematography and production tech. It features exhibits, seminars, and workshops, providing a dynamic platform for industry professionals to connect, learn, and explore innovative equipment and techniques.



Attending the BSC Expo in London offers numerous benefits for individuals across the filmmaking spectrum. For cinematographers, it provides a unique opportunity to stay abreast of the latest advancements in camera technology, lighting solutions, and equipment. Directors and producers can network with industry professionals, discover new collaborators, and gain insights into emerging trends. Additionally, for aspiring filmmakers and students, the expo offers a valuable educational experience, with seminars, workshops, and demonstrations providing practical knowledge and inspiration. Overall, the BSC Expo is an invaluable resource for anyone passionate about filmmaking, providing a platform for learning, networking, and innovation.
