Education co-chairs Ernie Kestler and Dylan Macleod csc have developed an ambitious program of courses and workshops. Offering virtually one a month throughout the year, they include: digital camera assistant courses; various levels of lighting workshops from beginners to master classes; workshops for 3D and special effects cinematography; plus a workshop designed specifically for camera operators. Our courses are hands-on for the participants and are held in various industry locations around Toronto. With an eye to the future and slightly further afield, the CSC is planning to develop various other workshops such as cinematography for directors, producers, actors and perhaps even a workshop that deals specifically with cinematography in relation to lighting and make-up. The teaching talent for our workshops and courses are drawn from the CSC’s membership. Participants must apply, and their entrance is dependent on their qualifications in relation to their industry background and work experience. Essentially, CSC courses and workshops are “by professionals for professionals.” Our industry is constantly evolving with technological advancements moving at blinding speeds. The CSC’s educational initiatives strive to keep our profession vibrant and thriving in tandem with the evolution of our industry. I would like to thank Ernie and Dylan for all their hard work and guidance in keeping our educational program relevant and moving forward.
At the beginning of February, the CSC held its Annual General Meeting at Technicolor in Toronto. I would like to thank Technicolor for not only providing the space for our AGM, but also for the excellent refreshments and food. The reports from our executive can be found in this month’s issue of the magazine. I would like to thank the CSC executives for their due diligence throughout the year and to all our members who attended the AGM. See everyone next year!
The juries have been held, the nominees and winners have been chosen and we're just a few weeks away from The 55th CSC Annual Awards Gala. The highlight of our calendar year takes place March 31 at Westin Harbour Castle in downtown Toronto. For more information and tickets please see our advertisement in this month’s magazine, or call our office at 416-266-0591, or head to our website at www.csc.ca. See you there!
To all our readers of Canadian Cinematographer: Good shooting!
