A message from Victoria Branch President Brent Crockett ACS
Dear Friends & Colleagues, 

The Feedback on our awards presentation on Saturday night over the past couple of days has been awesome and thanks to those who have sent through messages of thanks. It’s been hailed as one of the best yet with a record number of entries. A big congratulations once again to all the winners and to those members who received their accreditation – well done.

The sold-out event moved along so smoothly with our wonderful MC Annie Louey that we created awards history by finishing almost an hour early - giving those who attended plenty of time to catch up with friends and colleagues.

A big shout out also to our Guest of Honour, Director Jeffrey Walker. It was great to hear the story of his journey so far. I’m glad the “Red Jacket” & fake palm trees idea worked – we seem to have created a bold new concept for our Guest of honour segment which other branches will be scrambling to adopt. Well, maybe...

Another big shout out too to our Vic branch committee for all the long hours of work in making the awards such a great success.

We have a number of great events in the planning stages for next year. On behalf of myself and the committee may I wish you and your family all the very best for Christmas and the new year, and we look forward to seeing you at our next event in 2024.

Merry Christmas everyone!

The 57th Victorian & Tasmanian Awards For Cinematography - Winners

First: congratulations to the six Victorian members who received their ACS accreditation at the 2023 awards!

Cesar Salmeron-Hoving ACS (#451)
Matthew Temple ACS (#453)
Giovanni C. Lorusso ACS (#455)
Darrell Martin ACS (#458)
Carl Allison ACS (#461)
Sky Davies ACS (#463)

With special thanks to our National Major Sponsor and all of our wonderful Victorian State Sponsors.

The Victorian ACS is proud to introduce its newest Victorian Silver Sponsor: Moodlab

Moodlab believes colour should be considered early and images given a look before and/or during the edit. This can be scaled up or down depending on your project’s needs.

With this kind of workflow, the final stage of the grade is what we call ‘sweetening’ and occurs after the edit is locked.

You’ll also have the opportunity to work with colourists along the way to develop the look and experiment with options, so no stone is left unturned.
