Industry veteran Michael Bravin admitted today that while working for German film and TV camera powerhouse ARRI he hacked into the files of LA-based rival Band Pro Film and Digital, where he had worked for 15 years. Bravin, who moved to ARRI as VP market development in 2010, pleaded guilty to using the name and password of CEO and president Amnon Band to access files used in interstate commerce. Emails from several industry firms were accessed during the hacking, including those of Red Digital Cinema founder Jim Jannard. The hacking occurred between December 2009 and June 2010. Bravin has been in the biz for decades, and has worked for Abekas Video Systems, California Communications and NBC Sports. Under the plea agreement, Bravin will serve two months in jail and pay at least $5K in restitution as well as legal costs.
