The American Society of Cinematographers has tapped Daryn Okada as president.

Okada has over 40 credits, including “Lake Placid,” “Dr. Dolittle 2,” and “Mean Girls.”

“The art of filmmaking and the evolution of new visual technologies have been inseparably linked from the earliest days of the industry,” Okada said. “Our goal is to help assure that the evolution of technology serves the cinematic arts.”

The ASC’s other offices include VPs Michael Goi, William A. Fraker and Caleb Deschanel; treasurer Victor J. Kemper; secretary Michael Negrin; and sergeant at arms John Hora.
