ASC Members Speak at
J.L. Fisher Open House
J.L. Fisher recently fired up the grill for
its ninth annual open house and barbecue,
which was co-presented by the ASC, the
International Cinematographers Guild and
the Society of Camera Operators. A number

outdoor exhibition hall, and as tradition now
holds, the day concluded with a spirited
"Dialogue with ASC Cinematographers"

ASC. Dibie was joined by Society

Billy
Webb,
Shelly
Johnson,
Dave
Perkal,
Paul
Maibaum,
Michael
Goi,
Bill
Bennett, Robert Primes, Frederic
Goodich, Oliver Bokelberg and Suki
Medencevic. Taking questions from the
audience, the panel spoke to getting the
most out of whatever format a project
employs, whether film or digital; making
necessary compromise look like intended
style; and trends - both good and bad -
that are taking hold in contemporary

production. "I think you have to play nice to
be successful," Bokelberg offered, to which
Bennett added, "My key grip once told me,
'Stay flexible, stay employed.'" Goi summarized the spirit of the conversation when he
said, "Film entertainment is a constantly
evolving aesthetic. I think it's an exciting
time."

Brown Leads Steadicam Panel
The Society and associate member

and a National Inventors Hall of Fame

event included a demonstration of the
modular M1 Steadicam, the Steadicam

Segway. Brown's presentation included
examples of notable Steadicam scenes,
including clips from Terminator and Casino,
followed by a panel discussion with
Steadicam Guild members David Emmerichs,
Jerry Holway and Dan Kneece, along with
Steadicam operators Chris Fawcett and
Geoff Haley. Explaining Steadicam technology in relation to human movement and
vision, Brown noted, "When you walk, you
see a damn beautiful dolly shot."
Fifth Annual Volker Bahnemann
Awards
The Fifth Annual Volker Bahnemann
Awards for Cinematography - named for
retired ASC associate Volker Bahnemann
- were awarded to Sheldon Chau at the
graduate level and Antoine Combellas at the
undergraduate level at New York University's
Tisch School of the Arts. The grants were
established in 2010 to honor Bahnemann's
48 years at Arri, 32 of which were served as
CEO and president of Arri Inc. and Arri CSC.
The grants - which are funded through
donations from Arri, Arri CSC (now Arri
Rental), the Stahl family, and friends and
colleagues - are a perpetual bequest to
annually recognize talented cinematography
students with a production grant to fund
their thesis projects.
