ASC Unveils New Educational Space for the Next Generation of Filmmakers

The American Society of Cinematographers celebrates its centennial by opening the new ASC ARRI Education Center.

The new 5,000 square foot space designed to inspire and educate aspiring filmmakers.  Located behind the ASC Clubhouse, the ASC ARRI Educational Center provides meeting spaces as well as an archive of American Cinematographer, the ASC magazine that celebrates the art of filmmaking. 

"We are pleased to support the ASC in their ongoing mission to educate and inspire the next generation of filmmakers." 

The Center's opening lands on the 100th birthday of the organization, a moment that for ASC President Kees van Oostrum, signifies ASC's devotion to training and education.  "It is thrilling to see the educational commitment of the ASC solidified through this endeavor,” President Kees van Oostrum noted in an ASC press release.  "For me, it manifests our mission for the next 100 years."

For camera and lighting system manufacturer ARRI, collaborating and supporting the Educational Center is a natural progression of its relationship with the ASC.  For the last year, ARRI has been co-hosting Master Classes with the ASC, including multiple five-day seminars in Los Angeles and an International Master Class in Mexico City.   Now, ARRI continues its devotion to education by not only supporting the new educational center but continuing the International Master Classes for the next decade.

"We are pleased to support the ASC in their ongoing mission to educate and inspire the next generation of filmmakers." Markus Zeiler, a member of the Executive Board at ARRI, shared via press release.  "We believe the ASC ARRI Education Center will help the ASC grow their efforts today, tomorrow, and for years to come."
