of photography, for the feature film “Dune”.
This event is open to all crew, but specifically directed at DOPs and Production Designers interested in Volume Production.

We’ll also be joined by Greig’s VP Assistant Tamas Papps zooming in from Budapest to show examples of tests and work they have done together.

On Tuesday September 5th the ACS Victoria branch will be holding its Annual Branch Meeting (formerly known as the AGM). Come along and say hi! If you want to join the general committee or nominate for an executive position this is the time and place to do so, but there's no obligation or expectation in that regard, and we expect most of you will be there for the special screening we've organised!
The meeting will take place at 7pm at the Sun Theatre in Yarraville, and will be followed at 7:30pm by a special screening of the fantastic documentary "Splice Here", shot by Victorian DOP and committee member Joanne Donahoe-Beckwith. "Splice Here" is a love letter to film, told through the eyes of documentarian and projectionist, Rob (Bert) Murphy. More details and booking form to follow in a future email.
