ARRI Australia sponsored me to go to Bydgoszcs, Poland for the annual Camerimage International Cinematography Film Festival so that I could cover the event on behalf of the Australia Cinematographer Society (ACS).
This is the most prestigious Cinematography Film Festival. The biggest films nominated and screened there every year, the best DPs in the world attending, judging, speaking on panels. Where the DP is the celebrity. Read my article below to find out more :)
It turned out that, at the same time, the first ever Education in Cinematography conference was being held by IMAGO (The European Federation of Cinematographers) in Belgium. So, the ACS sent me to represent the Australian Film and Television Radio School (AFTRS) with Andrew Hyde (the president of the Northern Territory chapter of the ACS).
We partook in the discussions of what the future of teaching Cinematography should look like.
The Australian Cinematographer magazine featured both of my articles!
