POSTCARD FROM DON McALPINE ACS ASC

Hi everyone,

In New York till early September. I'm about to commence a project that could be a cinematographers dream. It is an event film exclusively to be released in 3-D in a Broadway theater on 42nd St. Fundamentally it will be 17 of the greatest hits of Broadway sung by the person most famous for each particular number. We are shooting 4K in 3-D at 30 frames using the Reality rig based on two Red Epics. Each number will be shot on a stage constructed so that we can walk the fine line between a Presidium arch and filmic presentation. Like all jobs you travel with the hope of the possibilities it presents and the fear of the unknown. I will try to drop you a line after we have completed one or two numbers.

Kindest regards. Don

A HELPING HAND

Have you heard of the Motion Picture Industry Benevolent Society?

It’s been providing financial and emotional support to members of the cinema industry for more than eighty years!

It was founded in the years of the Great Depression by people in exhibition and distribution to help colleagues who had fallen on hard times. More recently, the MPIBS has extended its support to the production and post-production sectors.

Beneficiaries are young and old, working and retired. The MPIBS is a safety net which enables our friends and colleagues to be cared for when they need it most.

But the Society needs your help to continue its work.

Please visit the MPIBS webpage (or put MPIBS in your search engine) for information about how to donate. You could be helping one of your friends or colleagues…….

MPIBS

THE ACS PROUDLY SUPPORTS THE MPIBS AND WE ENCOURAGE MEMBERS OF THE ACS TO CONTRIBUTE TO THIS FANTASTIC CAUSE.

Woven Threads

NSW member Michi Marosszeky is currently involved in a project which she has written and directed - we thought you might like to know about it.

It’s a nine part animation series called Woven Threads one episode of which has been completed. Michi is trying to use the “crowdfunding” model to raise finance for the remaining eight. Here’s a little about it:

Woven Threads brings to life stories surrounding the diversity of immigration, through humorous, poignant, and always touching animated videos. The aim of Woven Threads is to connect people through story. It is designed so that the debates, disputes and hysteria that surround immigrants, refugee's and asylum seekers might be put aside for a few short minutes while the humanity and the uncertainty of life is explored.
