News cammos.

Recently our only 'news' committee member resigned due to family and work commitments so we are looking for a replacement or two.

If you are passionate about cinematography and would like to be on the committee and put the voice of news cammos forward please contact Ernie Clark asap. It doesn't hurt a bit, in fact it can be fun!

We meet once a month, generally on the first Monday, for about 1 to 1.5 hours @ Anifex @ 1830 so please put your hand up and help make the ACS truly representative of all genres of cinematography.

Oh and if you get a chance, type: Gopro 12000 ft freefall into Google - quite impressive little cameras.
