ASC Vision Events

The ASC Vision Committee hosts events throughout the year that create opportunities for education, networking and inspiration for working or aspiring cinematographers, crew people and other filmmakers. Events have included lectures, panel discussions, and hands-on training with equipment traditionally exclusive to bigger-budget productions. The committee also partners with media and gear companies and other organizations to generate practical experience for participants. 

Collaborators have included Netflix, PRG, Red Digital Camera, CineMoves, School of Visual Arts and Women In Media
