Rival slates split vote for lensers’ delegates

Governing body merges elected Unite 600, Coalition members

Members of the Intl. Cinematographers Guild, which operates as Local 600 of the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, have split their support in an election for delegates to the IATSE convention.

Local 600 members elected 11 of the 20 delegates from the Unite 600 slate, headed by Stephen Lighthill, and the remaining nine from the Coalition for a Democratic Union, headed by Local 600 president-elect Gary Dunham.

Dunham defeated Lighthill last month by a 52-48 margin in a race to succeed longtime prexy George Spiro Dibie, and Dunham’s slate won five of the seven national offices for the ICG. Dunham stressed the need for the local — which reps about 5,700 cinematographers, below-the-line camera crew and publicists — to take a more confrontational stance in addressing the problem of runaway production.

In the delegate voting, 1,454 of the 5,700 eligible members voted, with cinematographer Haskell Wexler and national executive director Bruce Doering taking the largest number of votes in a field of 115 candidates.

Winners on the Unite 600 slate were Doering, Lighthill, Steven Poster, Bob Primes, Chaim Kantor, Baird Steptoe, Michael St. Hilaire, Kim Gottlieb-Walker, Susan Starr, Peter Kuttner and Tom Houghton.

Winners on the CDU slate were Kristin Glover, Ron Vargas, John Lindley, James Glennon, Eddie Avila, Guy Olds, Michael Frediani, George Kohut and Lee Kazista.
