Band Pro President and CEO, Amnon Band noted: “As we all know, NAB is very gear-oriented. What’s the new camera? What’s the new lens? While it’s interesting to see the new technology, we should never lose sight of the people behind the tools. Our Filmmaker’s Forum was created for just that reason.”
