New 2022 Season of ASC Clubhouse Conversations Continues

Our popular online program features leading cinematographers and other filmmakers discussing their creative process and collaborations in recent projects.

For more than 100 years, the core mission of the ASC has been to advance the art of cinematography. Our ASC Clubhouse Conversations series is one of several outreach initiatives to connect filmmakers and fans alike with some of the top creative talents in the industry. 

Moderated by Society members, the in-depth discussions in each Clubhouse Conversations episode explores the cinematographer’s experience on a recent project, and, in some instances, includes their key collaborators. In recent episodes, those has included Sophia Coppola, Spike Lee, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Liesl Tommy, Siân Heder, Lee Daniels, Deon Taylor and David Fincher.

ASC Clubhouse Conversations are accessible on the American Cinematographer website and through its social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Vimeo, and Instagram) for free.

Our 2022 season kicked off on May 17. Here are the first six episodes:
