The American Society of Cinematographers has announced the completion of the construction of its new ASC ARRI Education Center. The education center was made possible through the support of ARRI, a leading manufacturer of camera and lighting technology for the motion picture and film industry. The official opening of the new structure coincided with the organization’s celebration of its 100th anniversary with members and sponsors.
Located behind the historic ASC Clubhouse in Hollywood, the building now serves as a place for the organization’s efforts to educate the next generation of filmmakers on the art and craft of cinematography. The new 5,000-square-foot space consists of offices, a large meeting room, and provides a gathering place for the exchange of ideas. In addition to being the home to all print and digital publications staff, the center also houses an archive of historic American Cinematographer magazines for those wishing to research the art and craft of cinematography.
ARRI has a longstanding relationship with the ASC and its membership. The ASC and ARRI previously collaborated on the launch of the International Master Class series, intensive workshops taking place around the world with acclaimed ASC members. Since 2019, ARRI has hosted various Los Angeles-based Master Classes and will continue to sponsor the International Master Classes for the next decade.
