September Drop In

Tristan Milani ACS

Our guest at the September Drop In will be Tristan Milani ACS.

Tristan is an Australian-born cinematographer who recently returned to Sydney after living and working in Los Angeles. Throughout his career, Tristan has garnered accolades for not only his feature film work, but also his commercial cinematography. His highly regarded work on MTV Networks’ “Welcome Snoop” Campaign in 2008 won a number of awards, including a Cannes Silver Lion, a Cannes Gold Lion, two Silver Clio Awards, a Bronze Clio Award, a New York Festival Silver Award and Finalist placement, and an ASTRA Subscription Television Award for “Best Short Form Program.”
In 2013 Tristan completed his first US TV series, "Make or Break: The Linda Perry Project" for VH1, which screened in the summer of 2014. In January 2014 he also completed filming his latest feature film, Paper Planes, a kids' film starring Sam Worthington. Tristan will give us an overview of his current projects and screen some of Paper Planes during which we will have our customary audience Q&A.
Come along to HQ (address below) on Thursday 17th September - doors open at 6pm with proceedings kicking off at 6:45 or so.


The ACS NSW Annual General Meeting will be held this coming Tuesday 15th September at the HQ commencing at 6:30 pm.

Nominations for the NSW branch committee have now closed and as there were more nominations for committee than positions vacant there will need to be a vote for committee member representatives.  In order to vote you will need to be at the AGM and if you are unable to attend (but wish to vote) you will need to submit a signed proxy to an attendee so that they are able to vote on your behalf.  If you wish to go this route you will need to secure the proxy/attendee yourself.

Accreditaion - Congratulations

Once a year qualifying ACS members are able to apply for the highly prestigious Accreditation. For those of you new to the Society an Accredited a member is entitled to use the letters ACS after their name but Accreditation doesn’t come easily and members must present work of a very high standard before the Accreditation panel will consider their application.

This year four NSW members have achieved the honour of being Accredited. Congratulations to Borce Damcevski ACS, Frank Flick ACS, Ross Giardina ACS, Viv Scanu ACS, and Jason Wotherspoon ACS. Well done, and may you proudly use the suffix ACS.
