Kodak ACS Cinematography Student Masterclass

Advance Notice:

The SA Branch is having discussions with Kodak to hold their very successful Kodak ACS Cinematography Student Masterclass in the first week of December.

This rewarding and intensive program is taken by some of Australia's leading DOP's and offers the chance to refine your skills in cinematography and to shoot 35mm & 16mm film.

So watch out for more info.

Another New Studio in Town

There's another new studio in town, maybe it's not as big or as grand as the SAFC's Adelaidie Studios. But check it out at Stepney Studios at Unit 2 29 Henry St Stepney. It has a 6m x 6m cyc and total area is approx 110 sq metres. It's already been busy with shoots for Kojo and Mark Evans Productions. For bookings or to have a look through contact Darce on 0438 334 118.

The SA Branch appreciates the support of our National Sponsors.
