NSW Presidents Message

Hi fellow Cinematographers and supporters,
The NSW committee has hit the ground running in 2020 and we have already held 4 x very successful events.
  • At our January drop in we were fortunate enough to have cinematographer Bruce Young ACS and director Shawn Sent discuss their working relationship on Storm Boy.  
  • C.R. Kennedy presented their new range of full frame Zeiss Supreme Prime Radiance Lenses on January 21st. 
  • Ben Allan ACS held a Saturday workshop on ACES.  
  • On the 10th February we had an evening at Apple’s new post production demo suite at their offices in Martin Place where they presented their new Mac Pro computers and Pro Display XDR 32 inch Retina 6K monitors.
Congratulations are in order for Tom Gleeson ACS and the team that put together the test on the newly released Sony FX 9.
It has been a huge success.  The video version reaching a large audience with reporting over 10,000 views of the article.  There have been over 1,600 views on the ACS Vimeo account and over 1K views on Youtube, with all platforms views continuing to grow. 
Check it out now on the ACS Vimeo Site
At our drop in this coming Thursday we are having a dual presentation with Ben Allan ACS doing a “short overview” of his recent workshop on “ACES” (Academy Color Encoding System) and how it will become an important part of the cinematographers knowledge base and ARRI will be having a hands on showing of their new Orbiter light.
Also just a reminder that we are always looking for ideas from the members re what they would like to see included at our drop ins.
On behalf of the committee I wish you all the best for the coming year.

Regards to all.
