July 2022 Newsletter

Welcome to our first Tasmanian newsletter for the 2022/23 membership year. 

Our Tasmanian Branch Annual General Meeting is coming up in a couple of weeks (see info below).  As usual we'll be combining it with an interesting presentations from a local ACS member.  This year it's Adam Reibel. Adam is well known to many ACS Tas members as a freelance cinematographer.  He's also a keen ACS member and has been a great help to me running the tech/AV side of recent ACS Tas events.  Now it's Adams turn to stand out the front and share some of his career experiences. 

I hope to see many of you there. We'll run Adams presentation first,  followed by food and drinks, and then wrap up with the AGM which will be done and dusted quickly (I promise).

Back in May most of you would have received an automatic renewal invoice for your ACS membership for 2022/23.  Thank you to those who've already renewed your membership. If you're yet to do so we ask that you do so promptly.  Your membership subs allow our small branch to continue to run events and support all local members. If you're struggling to find your emailed invoice, please contact us via the link below and Tas Treasurer, Mitchell Woolnough can help.

Of course, we understand that some may be finding things financially tough at this time, so please don't hesitate to let us know and we can work out a way to keep you involved.

Adam Reibel is a freelance cinematographer in Hobart and the ACS National Newsletter Editor.

Quoted in The Mercury as part of ‘TV royalty,’ Adam has been involved in television and cinematography his whole life, following his father Rob, covering breaking news for the national television networks, filming popular reality television programs in the middle of a pandemic, creating social media content and travelling across the country and into Asia filming lifestyle television programmes.

Three years ago, Adam, along with a dozen other state government ministerial staffers, was the victim of a contract that said “at the pleasure of the Premier” as a former Premier’s official cinematographer and social media advisor. He then became freelance by ‘stealing his father's gear.’
He works alongside (but separately from) his father, veteran cinematographer Rob Reibel, in many genres, including news, current affairs, lifestyle, reality, sport and corporate productions.

Adam will showcase his work since he became a freelancer and how he goes about it, along with the equipment he uses.
The ACS Tasmania Branch Annual General Meeting will follow Adams presentation.  Food and drinks  will be provided.  Please stick around, have a say, and help us plan the year ahead.
