Masterclass with Bruce Beresford and Peter James ACS ASC
At the end of February, ACS Queensland and Griffith Film School hosted a masterclass with Bruce Beresford and Peter James ACS ASC. We had been quietly organising this for almost a year though repeated border closures seemed to stop us every time, safe to say we were ecstatic to finally execute the plan. 

In the lead up to the workshop, Bruce provided a script that the Griffith masters students would shoot on the soundstage. Then when the workshop started, Peter and Bruce shot the same scene. 

Workshops like these offer a very rare insight into an established director/DP relationship, and it's fascinating to see the shorthand and speed that Peter and Bruce have developed over the years. 

Peter, as always, had many tricks up his sleeve and was more than generous with his wealth of knowledge. It was great to see students and ACS members alike hurriedly writing down pages of notes.

These workshops are also a great opportunity to bridge the gap between industry and students, we'd love to thank Josh Bailey, Beau Selwood, Luke Farrow and Earle Brokenshire for crewing the workshop. We'd also love to shout to the team at Panavision for providing our camera package for the shoot. 

At the end of the masterclass we screened the students' scene alongside Peter and Bruce's. It was really interesting to see how differently the same script can be interpreted by different directors. 

ACS Queensland would love to thank Peter and Bruce for their time and generosity, and Griffith Film School for asking us to be involved, including but not limited to Donna Hamilton, Herman Van Eyken and Danielle Redford. 
Credit Maker 2022
The ACS is thrilled to announce the new CREDIT MAKER scheme for early mid-career female practitioners.
Credit Maker is a high calibre new initiative that will support 12 female practitioners across directing, cinematography and composing to attain a career defining credit on a scripted production; to elevate their career trajectory; and, to bring change in female HoD representation in the sector. 
Credit Maker is supported by Screen Australia’s Gender Matters umbrella in partnership with the Australian Directors Guild, the Australian Cinematographers Society and the Australian Guild of Screen Composers.

Gender Matters is the umbrella name of Screen Australia’s efforts to address the underutilisation of female talent in key creative roles in the Australian screen industry.

When The Camera Stopped Rolling


Date: 29 April, 2022

Time: 1pm

Where: Gold Coast Film Festival

Jane Castle ACS, daughter of trailblazing Australian filmmaker, Lilias Fraser, tells the epic tale of her mother’s extraordinary life, her career and their challenging relationship. 

Driven by the need to understand and heal from their shared trauma, director/cinematographer Jane Castle ACS digs deep using the rich textures of a stunning, unseen part of Australia’s cinematic history.

Tenacious, enthusiastic and ambitious, Lilias overcame huge systemic and personal obstacles to make over 40 films in her lifetime. But her success came at a cost – the early trauma that drove her also saw her unravel over time. 

Deeply moving and searingly honest, When the Camera Stopped Rolling reveals both the light and dark of this proto-feminist icon and unique mother-daughter team. The triumphs and turbulence of their careers and their relationship are captured with clarity and compassion, set against a rich tapestry of stunning visuals and sound.
