Michael Goi has been elected to a second one-year term as president of the American Society of Cinematographers, the 450-member, invitation-only organization that reps the cream of the d.p. crop.
“At a time when so much is going on in the industry, this is a tremendous vote of confidence that this body of incredible artists believes in my vision of where the ASC, and the art and craft of cinematography, is going in the future,” Goi said in a statement.
Goi joins a lineup of cinematographers who have served multiple terms as president, including current ASC VP Richard Crudo, as well as his predecessor, Daryn Okada, both of whose stints ran three consecutive years.
The society recently participated in the Joint Technology Subcommittee on Previsualization with the Art Directors Guild, Visual Effects Society and Producers Guild of America, which led to the formation of the Previsualization Society.The ASC also recently completed the renovation and expansion of its vintage Hollywood clubhouse, built in 1903.
