ASC calls for Heritage Award entries

Competition honors artistic achievement in student filmmaking

The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) has called for entries in the 2011 William A. Fraker Heritage Award competition for outstanding artistic achievement in student filmmaking.

The award, dedicated annually to the memory of a cinematographer who made extraordinary contributions to advancing the art, will be presented during the 25th annual ASC Awards at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles on February 13, 2011.

“Billy Fraker was a wonderful human being in addition to being an amazingly talented cinematographer,” said awards committee chair Richard Crudo. “He also inspired and supported countless numbers of aspiring filmmakers to follow their dreams.”

Fraker earned Oscar noms for “Looking for Mr. Goodbar” (1977), “Heaven Can Wait” (1978), “1941” (1979), “WarGames” (1983) and “Murphy’s Romance” (1985), and for creating in-camera visual effects for “1941.” Other credits includes “Rosemary’s Baby,” “Bullitt,” “Paint Your Wagon,” “Tombstone” and “Rules of Engagement.”

Fraker was a camera loader on “The Lone Ranger” TV series in 1962. He earned the first of his 50-plus cinematography credits in 1966 on TV’s “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriett” and shot his first mainstream feature, “The President’s Analyst,” in 1967.
