The board of the American Society of Cinematographers has re-elected Victor J. Kemper as president for the year.
Kemper, who has credits on more than 50 films, including “Dog Day Afternoon,” has served in the post for four consecutive years beginning in 1993 and again last year.
The board also named Dean R. Cundey as first vice president, Steven B. Poster as second veepee, Russell P. Carpenter as third VP, John C. Hora as secretary, Robert Primes as treasurer and Laszlo Kovacs as sergeant-at-arms.
Kemper said his major goals for ASC this year will be to continue monitoring technical issues affecting cinematographers, such as digital projection and post-production, and planning a new headquarters building on the grounds of the ASC clubhouse on North Orange Drive in Hollywood.
The 97-year-old clubhouse, which ASC has occupied since 1936, would be converted into a museum to display the hundreds of movie cameras that have been donated to the organization.
Explaining that plans are in the preliminary stage, Kemper said he will set up a building fund, seek governmental approvals and meet with residents of the area to discuss the project.
