The International Cinematographers Guild (ICG, Local 600) will host a conversation with Academy Award-nominated cinematographer Tom Stern, ASC, AFC at NAB next month. Stern will participate in the Creative Master Series Keynote: “Heroes, Legends and American Sniper: A Conversation with Tom Stern” on April 14 from 1:45-2:45 p.m. David Geffner, executive editor of ICG Magazine, will moderate.
The panel will focus on the recent Oscar-winning film, as well as Stern’s long association with Clint Eastwood. Highlights of the pair’s work include Letters from Iwo Jima, Flags of Our Fathers, Mystic River and Million Dollar Baby.
“How very proud we are to once again be partners with NAB in their Creative Master Series,” said ICG president Steven Poster. “This is the biggest trade show of the year, and it’s important that industry professionals attending are aware of the unique creative and technical skills that ICG members such as Tom Stern bring to the table.”
Geffner, who hosted Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister for NAB’s Creative Master Series Keynote last year, said Stern’s experience as a gaffer (prior to becoming a cinematographer) has contributed “to some of the most evocative lighting in cinema over the last two decades. I’m thrilled to be able to bring one of the most esteemed artists in Local 600 to the always knowledgeable and engaged NAB audience.”
