Angenieux gets a new logo, unveils a new building, showroom, studio and more in St. Heand, France. Over 300 guests from all over France and around the world attended the ceremonies on a crisp, beautifully backlit morning at the Angenieux factory. CEO Philippe Parain gave an Oscar-worthy speech, notable for his photographic recall of the names of all the dignitaries, captains of industry, staff, colleagues, and distinguished cinematographers in attendance. The morning began in the cinema adjoining the factory, with screenings of corporate films, a history of the company founded by Pierre Angenieux, and a speech by Denny Clairmont.
Outside, a ribbon was cut, and the new Angenieux logo was revealed, replacing the former one atop the factory.
After a sumptuous buffet lunch, complete with pate, asparagus on toast, smoked salmon, and much more, we split into groups to visit the new showroom, tour the factory, and applaud Philippe Parain and Denny Clairmont inaugurating the new film studio.
