President's Address: COVID-19
Dear cinematographers and friends,

We live in extraordinary and challenging times.

Many of our members have lost most if not all of their work almost overnight with the downturn in productions. 

Upcoming face-to-face events that ACS QLD had planned have been cancelled or postponed.

We are working to hold online sessions with DPs discussing their work, so do watch this space, and if you have suggestions for online events please contact us.

We understand how difficult these times are and will offer any assistance that we can.

Please stay safe and reach out as we are with you.

Thank you,

If you or anyone you know needs support, please contact the following organisations.
They are here to help.

Gene Moyle: Out of the Blue

Last year in April, performnce and sports psychologist Professor Gene Moyle held a presentation on navigating the mental and physical health hazards of freelancing in cinematography, and how best to maintain a positive headspace. This month, we thought it was timely to revisit this presentation, courtesy of ACS Queensland treasurer Mick Fanning.
