2020-2021 Victorian ACS Committee

On the 11th of June the Victorian ACS held its Annual General Meeting and elected a new committee for the coming 12 months. The committee consists of both general committee members, some of whom have specific roles, and also the executive branch which includes the President, Vice Presidents, Treasurer and Secretary.

We have to give a big thank you to our outgoing committee members who have generously donated their time.

First to Noel Smyth, who helped out during the last year with our events. To Alan Cole ACS, who did an incredible job as president for many years and more recently held the role of Accreditation Chair.

Finally, to William Adam Russ who over the years was both the Secretary and Vice President, and who kept the Victorian branch on track during his tenure. 

Thank you all for your service. The new committee looks an awful lot like the one from last year though we're glad to welcome back Laszlo Baranyai ACS, HSC, Brent Crockett ACS and Joanne Donahoe-Beckwith who have come back on the committee after some time away.

We will discuss collaborating in pre-production, how you work during the grade including when (and if) the DP is involved in the grading sessions, and how to build that essential digital darkroom relationship.

We will also discuss remote grading using software like and how working during lockdown has differed.

This event is aimed at emerging cinematographers and those who are interested in learning how and why to work with a colourist.
