ASC offers Master Class for Aspiring DPs

Top cinematographers to instruct in program

Aspiring cinematographers with some knowledge and experience with the medium have just been given another opportunity to advance their skills by learning from the brahmins of the biz. The American Society of Cinematographers  will  host an inaugural series of Master Classes, taught by such pros as Stephen Burum, the program advisor, and Caleb Deschanel, both recipients of ASC’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

Taking place Oct. 21-25 at the ASC Clubhouse in Hollywood, classes will be limited to 20 students. This is the first in a series of planned quarterly, week-long seminars. Subjects will include lighting, integrating photography with visual effects and workflow practices.

The organization’s site warns that these are not introductory-level courses. Registration is on a first-come, first served basis, and the tuition is $2,800.

According to ASC president Richard Crudo, classes “will be augmented by field trips to nearby state-of-the-art facilities. No one else can give such access to the range of knowledge and experience that resides under our roof.”

Additional instructors over the course of the year will include Oscar winners Richard Edlund, Dion Beebe, Russell Carpenter, Robert Elswit, Dean Semler and John Toll, as well as Dean Cundey, Dante Spinotti and Matthew Libatique.

At the conclusion of the week participants will receive a certificate of completion at a celebratory dinner with ASC members.
