Very many congratulations to GBCT Director of Photography JAMES FRIEND who has recently been admitted to the ASC as a full member – and who has also won an ASC award for his work on the amazing series PATRICK MELROSE.

Mentored by Directors of Photography PAUL WHEELER BSC, GBCT and PHIL MEHEUX BSC, GBCT, James was invited to join the Guild in March 2009 and then the BSC in 2013.  But as James said in his ASC acceptance speech (details attached), he couldn’t have done anything without the advice and guidance of these two superb  DoP’s as his mentors and without his brilliant camera team – many of whom are Guild Members.  James specifically wanted his Guild crew’s names to be listed here, to thank them for their incredible support and fantastic work on PATRICK MELROSE and the many other productions they’ve worked on together.

So, here goes:
DANNY BISHOP GBCT – A-Camera & Steadicam;
TONY JACKSON GBCT - Additional Camera Operator;
MILOS MOORE GBCT – 2nd Unit DoP;
TOM DUNNE GBCT...

DoP Tobias Schliessler ASC has just made a short film using the Premista 28-100.
The film was also directed by his daughter, Aisha. The film was shot using the Sony Venice apart from the couple of slo-mo scenes that were actually shot on the Alexa Mini with Premier 18-85. The brief to Tobias was simply to try to show off the lens in as many different situations as possible so the film was written to include focus pulls, flares, high contrast, low light etc.
