International Cinematography Summit Held at ASC Clubhouse

ICS2016

For this unique four-day event, the American Society of Cinematographers invited peers from around the world to meet in Los Angeles, where they would discuss professional and technological issues and help define how cinematographers can maintain the quality and artistic integrity of the images they create.

On the morning of June 6, the ASC Clubhouse was readied for the opening of the International Cinematography Summit (ICS), which brought together representatives from cinematography societies from around the world to share their knowledge and experience.

Following opening remarks — from ASC President Richard Crudo; International Committee chair (and event coordinator) Frederic Goodich, ASC; Michael Goi, ASC, ICS and Kees Van Oostrum, ASC — the ambitious ICS program began with opening statements from the collected representatives.
