Congratulations to ACS Tasmania members Andrew Quaile, Joshua Lamont ACS, Gerard Wood and Nick Hayward who picked up Awards at last nights Vic/Tas Awards for Cinematography.
Andrew won Silver in the highly competitive Corporate Branding and Advertising category for his cinematography on Josef Chromy – Chef.  Andrew has won a number of Awards in recent years and continues to produce great work from his Launceston base at Ideas Banq.
 In the same category Josh Lamont won Gold for his work on Defiance. Rewarded.  This campaign, promoting the Tasmanian wine industry, was shot just prior to Covid.  What a great month it’s been for Josh – gaining ACS Accreditation and now receiving yet another Gold Award. 

In the Corporate Branded Content, Educational and Events category Gerard Wood won Silver for Keystone for RED KOMODO.  Many of us met Gerard at our AGM when he demonstrated the Laowa Macro Probe lens.  Gerard used that lens to help achieve some amazing shots in this award winning work, promoting Ignite Digi’s new rig for the 6K RED KOMODO camera.

 Finally, Nick Hayward picked up his Award in the Nature and Wildlife Category.  Along with Simon Plowright Nick has been forging a wonderful career in this genre.  This Silver Award was for a film he shot called Cute Little Killers.  A Numbat called Lena is the star of this film!  Nick and Simon have a wildlife documentary screening on ABC TV soon.  From what we hear Quolls will be another fabulous film.  Can’t wait to see it.

The  Vic/Tas Awards for Cinematography were  held virtually, and streamed online last night. With a record number of entries (233) across 23 Categories it made judging a very challenging process.  To win any Award in these circumstances is a mighty achievement.

Ashley Barron ACS 

Ashley Barron ACS has been in Tasmania filming the new SBS series The Tailings and has kindly taken time out to do an event with us!  Ashley will talk us through her career and journey thus far and show some of her favourite projects.

Ashley Barron ACS.
Ashley is an international cinematographer who strives to create an immersive experience that reflects a symbolic understanding of the project. Aligning this approach with the director's vision is her specialty.

Growing up between Russia, Armenia, Ireland and Australia has shaped her unique mix of visual attitudes, perspective and approach.

She worked as camera assistant before being selected as 1 of 28 Cinematographers in the world to train at the American Film Institute Conservatory in Hollywood, the youngest in her class. During this time Ashley was chosen by Academy Award winning Director of Photography Dion Beebe ASC ACS to work as his apprentice on Green Lantern.

Ashley's AFI Thesis film Dreamland earned her a nomination at the prestigious Camerimage Cinematography Film Festival and profiled in both the American and Australian Cinematographer Magazines.

Ashley's first feature film One Less God had its world premiere at the 20th Dances With Films where it took away both the Industry and Jury Prizes, the first film in the festival's history. The film went on to beat out features like Jungle and LOVING VINCENT for Best Film at the 2017 Byron Bay International Film Festival.
Covered by VARIETY, IndieWire, Moviemaker and IF Magazine One Less God's trailer has over 1 million views and has been picked up for international theatrical distribution.
Ashley is also one of the first members of the International Collective of Female Cinematographers (ICFC).
