The American Society of Cinematographers has promoted Andrew Fish to serve as senior editor of its flagship magazine, American Cinematographer. Fish is being advanced from his previous position as associate editor, a title he held for five years, and will continue reporting to the magazine’s editor-in-chief and publisher, Stephen Pizzello.
Fish was recently nominated for a Folio: Editorial Excellence Award (“Eddie”) for writing. His promotion follows the departure of the magazine’s managing editor, Jon Witmer, who is now employed at Panavision.
With 2020 marking its 100th anniversary, American Cinematographer is the entertainment industry’s oldest continuously published print journal. Its mission is to serve filmmakers by exploring the artistic thought processes of the field’s most innovative and talented directors of photography, and explaining the technical means by which they realize their creative visions, whether on film or digital media. In fulfilling those goals, the magazine seeks to keep readers abreast of advancements in all facets of motion-picture imaging technology — the tools cinematographers use to ply their trade — and to inform them of visually extraordinary productions, including feature films, television shows, commercials, shorts and music videos.
Over the past decade, American Cinematographer has earned five Folio: Editorial Excellence Awards in the category of B-to-B, Media/Entertainment Publishing, with four honorable mentions.
