All five 2018 Oscar and ASC Award nominees sat down at the ASC Clubhouse for in-depth discussions about their respective projects. 

Friends of the ASC members can access the entire conversations now.

With the 2018 Oscar nominations for the 90th Academy Awards announced on January 23, the American Society of Cinematographers was proud to note that all five nominees for Best Cinematography are not only members of the ASC, but also nominees for the 2018 ASC Awards for Outstanding Achievement in the category of Theatrical Release. (Deakins won the ASC's prize during the event on February 17.)

The five nominees all sat down to discuss their work at the ASC Clubhouse for our Coffee & Conversation event series, which are now available online in their entirety to Friends of the ASC (who can access these multi-part conversation videos by logging in now).

You can join Friends of the ASC right here.

Each session was moderated by filmmaker and AC contributor Jim Hemphill.
