Three young d.p.’s were honored on Saturday night at the American Society of Cinematographers’ Gordon Willis Student Heritage Awards, designed to showcase the next generation of filmmakers. The honors, named after the late d.p. behind “The Godfather” trilogy, were announced at the organization’s clubhouse in Hollywood.
Honorees included Graduate Award winner Steven Holloway from American University for “The Defeat X3”; Undergraduate Award winner Nicolas Aguilar Ketchum from Chapman University for “Run”; and Documentary Award winner Rob Scribner of Full Sail University for “Warbird Pilot: Behind the Visor.”
There were 13 competitors total, with six each in the narrative categories.
To be considered, participants must be recommended by instructors at their respective film schools. A blue ribbon panel of ASC members then judges the submission.
