In this workshop we are going to discuss what is sharpness and how to measure it.

During the session I will go step by step and create a MTF chart. Then, we will discuss how to read it and what we can learn about the subject under the test by looking at the chart.

Invitation to participate in the
Australian Camera Department Survey for the recommended minimum rate card.

It is time to do an update for the rate card with the aim to include cinematographers.

It would be great to get an accurate measure for the current rates in Australia, as well as a thorough understanding of what you want listed (or not listed) moving forward as an ideal minimum recommendation. Or generally any thoughts you may have about rates / conditions / and even having a rate card.

There is also the possibility that the ACS will host the rate card in the future on their website as a tool for all technicians and productions to access for reference. All answers are optional and so is anonymity. If you take on more than one role, please feel free to complete the survey more than once for each role you wish to provide feedback for.
