This Event is at 80% capacity already. Book NOW
This is one of those opportunities NOT TO BE MISSED. Our very own Victorian ACS member, David Eggby ACS will present a screening and Q & A of 'Riddick', the masterful 3rd instalment of this action franchise which began with 'Pitch Black'.
This promises to be a sellout as David shares his creative & technical expertise, with never before viewed behind-the-scenes photos, lighting plans and more. Whether you are an experienced or emerging DP, David's true passion for cinematography and his excellent ability to clearly explain his methods and processes in an entertaining and anecdotal way, will make this one-off event one you should cancel everything else to attend. If you have been to a David Eggby session before you will know what we mean.

About David Eggby ACS: He received the Cinematographer of the Year (2001) and the Golden Tripod from the Australian Cinematographers Society, both for his work on the film Pitch Black. Beginning his career as a photographer for the Royal Australian Navy, Eggby then moved on to work for Australian television production company Crawfords, working on such shows as Homicide and Matlock Police. Eggby was cinematographer on the low budget action film Mad Max (1979) directed by George Miller and produced by Byron Kennedy who went on to form the now famous Kennedy Miller collaboration. While filming Mad Max, Eggby often risking personal injury. He would perch himself on the back of a speeding motorbike to achieve adrenaline pumping shots for the cult favourite.

His films include:
Mad Max
Pitch Black
Dragon:The Bruce Lee story
The Marine
Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man
Lightning Jack
Racing Stripes
……… name a few, seriously.
