Kodak has issued its annual call for entries in the 2015 Kodak Scholarship Program. This international program is designed to encourage and foster new talent by honoring student filmmakers who demonstrate exemplary filmmaking skills and creativity at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Three student scholarship awards and two student cinematography scholarship awards will be granted. The deadline for submissions is May 15.
John Bailey, ASC, will lead a panel of judges to assess the entries based on sample reels, faculty recommendations and academic achievements. This is Bailey’s fourth consecutive year as a judge. In addition to receiving the lifetime achievement award from his peers in the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) this year, his list of credits include American Gigolo, Ordinary People, The Big Chill, The Accidental Tourist, Groundhog Day, As Good as it Gets, Incident at Loch Ness, Big Miracle, The Way Way Back and A Walk in the Woods. He also writes a blog for the ASC – John’s Bailiwick – on a range of topics that affect the art and craft of filmmaking.
Accredited film schools around the world may nominate up to two students for consideration for the student scholarship, and one cinematography student for the Kodak student cinematography scholarship.
