American Society of Cinematographers

During the Jackson Wild Summit in Austria, Ana Luisa Santos from Ateles Films undertook the ASC Cinematography Lab as a Fellow together with 8 other colleagues from around the globe and with different kinds of experience and background.
This Lab was a partnership between Jackson Wild, the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) and Wildlife Society of Filmmakers and it was led by Stephen Lighthill, President of the ASC, and Paul Atkins ASC cinematographer.

The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC), founded in Hollywood in 1919, is a cultural, educational, and professional organization that is neither a labor union nor a guild. The society was organized to advance the science and art of cinematography and gather a wide range of cinematographers to discuss techniques and ideas and to advocate for motion pictures as a type of art form. Currently, the president of the ASC is Stephen Lighthill.
