“We reserve this recognition for individuals who have made unique and exceptional contributions to advancing the art of filmmaking,” said ASC prexy Victor J. Kemper. “Guy Green earned the respect and admiration of peers for his artistry as a cinematographer, and for his long and unrelenting dedication to advancing this important art form. Guy was also a successful director, and he was one of the founders of the British Society of Cinematographers.”

Green’s first cinematography credit came in 1944 in “The Way Ahead” and he went on to acquire 20 credits as director of photography on such films as “Oliver Twist,” “Blanche Fury,” “Captain Horatio Hornblower,” “The Beggar’s Opera,” “Passionate Friends” and “I Am a Camera.”
