Our award-winning online interview series features filmmakers discussing the art and craft of visual storytelling.
The American Society of Cinematographers has resumed its popular Clubhouse Conversations program, featuring leading filmmakers discussing their creative process and collaboration.
Moderated by ASC members, the in-depth discussions explore the cinematographer’s experience, and, in some instances, include their collaborators. Last season, this included directors Sophia Coppola, Bryan Fogel, Spike Lee, Kevin Macdonald, Lee Daniels, Deon Taylor and David Fincher.
For more than 100 years, the ASC’s mission has been to advance the art of cinematography. Clubhouse Conversations are one of several outreach initiatives by the society to connect filmmakers and fans of cinematography with some of the top creative visual talent in the industry.
This new season of ASC Clubhouse Conversations kicked off on November 8 with a look at the award-winning indie drama CODA, as cinematographer Paula Huidobro and writer-director Siân Heder discuss their latest project with interviewer Levie Isaacks, ASC:
Our initial lineup of new episodes — with more to come — is expected to include:
Dune with Greig Fraser, ASC, ACS
The Lost Symbol with David Greene, ASC, CSC; Boris Mojsovski, ASC, CSC and Fraser Brown, CSC

A venerable group of ASC members will conduct many of these interviews, including Caleb Deschanel, Natasha Braier, Kira Kelly, Dante Spinotti and Mandy Walker, among others.
ASC Clubhouse Conversations will run through March 2022. Episodes will go live as they are produced, with a scheduled release of one to three per week.
Guests and moderators are subject to change based on availability.
