After 20 years of delivering insightful and informative content on the art and science of cinematography, the ASC web platform — launched in 1997 — has been completely revised to better present the creativity and technical know-how of working directors of photography.
The current version of the ASC website will be discontinued and unavailable after Wednesday, May 31.
As of Thursday, June 1, this URL will be pointed to our new and vastly improved platform.
Formerly a single destination, the ASC web platform will now offer two unique sites for our visitors from around the globe, both optimized for mobile use:
theasc.com is dedicated to the American Society of Cinematographers and the activities of its worldwide membership. Sections will include:
- ASC News
- Clubhouse Events
- Friends of the ASC Program
- Technology Committee Reports
- Video Interviews with ASC Members
- ASC Master Class Programs and Events
- The ASC Outstanding Achievement Awards
ascmag.com is a true online version of American Cinematographer magazine, the award-winning international journal of motion picture techniques. Sections will include:
- Filmmaker Interviews
- How-To Video Tutorials
- Insightful Filmmaker Blogs
- In-Depth Production Reports
- New Products & Services Coverage
- Podcasts with Top Cinematographers
- Historical Stories from the AC Archives
While certain key content will be presented on both sites, each offers plenty of unique features, and users can instantly access one or the other with a single click — creating the perfect complimentary experience. Just look for these icons in the top corner of each header:
ON JUNE 1, LOGIN TO EXPLORE WHAT WILL BECOME YOUR DAILY DESTINATIONS!
The process of porting over and organizing legacy content on the new sites will continue through the end of the month.
