The ACS has been working on a national research study of Australian cinematographers in collaboration with researchers from Deakin University. This study is the first of its kind in the world and will look at a broad range of aspects that relates to the careers and career paths of Australian cinematographers. One aspect of the study will involve a members survey so when it hits your inbox in the near future I hope you will all participate as everyone’s contribution is really important.
I would also like to invite any members to join an open meeting of the National Diversity, Inclusion and Reconciliation Committee. Chaired by Justine Kerrigan, once a year we open the meeting to any member who would like to participate.

That’s it from me this month, stay safe and vigilant so our industry stays working in what still feels like fragile times.
