Ben Nott ACS - Q&A on Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan

On the 14th October, Ben Nott ACS took a few hours out of his busy schedule to chat to an eager crowd of members, guests and aspiring cinematography students at Griffith Film School about what went into making a $40m war epic in Queensland. Amongst the carnage and mayhem, Ben was able to highlight his creative and pragmatic solutions to all the regular problems that arise when filming at this scale, all the way from camera and lens choices, to practical and computer-generated effects, and even to how he got such a large volume of shots with the use of a gimbal and a rickshaw! This immensely popular event would not have been possible without the generosity Griffith Film School for the use of their venue and projection system, as well as Ben for going the distance to provide his insight.

Angela Cerasi - Living in Colour Grading Presentation

Just two days later, QLD ACS members were treated to another chance to learn from one of Australia's best practitioners. Colourist Angela Cerasi donated her Wednesday evening to give a intermediate-level crash course on her grading workflow, tips-and-tricks to getting the best image on screen, and working with everyone who might find themselves sitting in on the grade. An eager crowd - with an overwhelming turnout of keen students and recent graduates - spent over two hours asking Angela questions about new colour finishing formats such as Dolby Vision; when it's appropriate to use HSL or Hue vs Hue, and so much more, and were unanimously all-the-wiser than they were upon arrival! Massive thanks are in order again to Griffith Film School for their venue, projector and computer resources, and Angela for sharing her wisdom and experience!
