VICTORIAN ACS eNews May 2nd 2013

The next couple of months are busy at ACS Victoria/Tasmania

If you can, try to get along to as many of these events as possible. Most are free to members. They promise to be fun and informative and a good chance to catch up with colleagues and potential employers.

We have a few other events coming up that have yet to be given firm dates and venues. Keep your eye out for news of the Vic ACS Black Magic Design Cinema Camera workshop mid -year, and also an evening with Andrew Lesnie ASC ACS in July or August. Both these are not to be missed.

Also in August we will again be running the famous "Cinematography Masterclass" with some very well-known DP's as tutors. These opportunities are rare and numbers are very limited so when it hits the press sign up straight away. Details TBC soon.
