Join Society members from 11:00am to 3:00pm at the Clubhouse in Hollywood, with a special signing of the new AC Manual and updated 2nd edition of Our First 100 Years, the history of the ASC.
The American Society of Cinematographers invites you to attend our 2022 open house — the first since 2019 — to be held at the historic ASC Clubhouse on Saturday, September 24. The gate will open at 11:00am and guests will be welcome to stay until 3:00pm. Refreshments will be provided.
The programming will include lively discussions held outdoors in the courtyard, with attending ASC members available and open to taking your questions.
American Cinematographer Manual co-author and ASC associate member Rob Hummel (with M. David Mullen, ASC) and many contributing chapter authors will attend to sign your copy of the recently released 11th edition. This hardback book is a limited-edition title and will sell out.
Co-author of the Society’s centennial celebration book Our First 100 Years, Charlie Lieberman, ASC will attend to sign your copy and discuss the new 2nd edition of this popular release. It has been expanded by 46 pages, with additional rare historical photos and career biographies on ASC greats, as well as a tribute to our Society members who have joined the ASC since 2019.
With a total of 200 pages, this new hardback book is making its public debut at the Open House and is a limited-edition title, with only 1,000 copies printed.
Both books will be on sale at the event, as will The Cine Lens Manual — a reference-quality resource on the history of motion-picture optics, with co-author Jay Holben in attendance to sign your copy and discuss his work with co-author Christopher Probst, ASC.
Holben is an ASC associate member and the technical editor for American Cinematographer.
Also available will be Vittorio Storaro on Bernardo Bertolucci Movies — the new book by esteemed member Vittorio Storaro, ASC, AIC. Of note, all available copies have been autographed by the author.
Also on hand will be the recently released 2nd edition of Digital Cinematography: Fundamentals, Tools, Techniques, and Workflows, by David Stump, ASC — featuring the latest technology for cameras, lenses, and recorders, as well as included a new section on future cinematographic trends.
The ASC Clubhouse is located at 1782 North Orange Dr. Hollywood, CA 90028.
There will be no on-site or validated parking. Ample public parking is available at the nearby Hollywood & Highland complex. The ASC is also a short walk from the Metro Red Line stop located there.
