Concluding the programme is and president, Klover Products, said: “We all get frustrated when a video is obscured by rain on the lens. By the end of many events the lens is so smudged it is extremely hard to follow the action. Sometimes you even catch the cameraman wiping his lens Doug Liman the Monday night movie screening of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which will be preceded by a talk by visual eff ects supervisor David Vickery from Industrial Light and Magic on the eff ects that were created for the fi lm. while his camera is live.” Terpstra claims Klover developed the Klear Shot for these situations. The camera operator does not have to move from his position and the process takes three seconds or less. 8.A72
