The most significant seminar was A Dialogue with the BSC and ASC Cinematographers, given the importance of the two associations. The British cinematographers were visiting Hollywood and celebrating their 6oth years of service. Their motto is "Preserving the Vision" and once again they are in the task of rewriting a new set of guidelines for the fast evolving concept of digital cinematography.

For many years, I have been a fan of British film making and their production techniques. Their ability to create a rich visual language that always has been distinctive and spectacular has made me a follower of every aspect of British cinema, including television production.

It started with an exquisite edited video presentation of clips by the masters and artisans that integrate both associations. George Spiro Dibie ASC, and BSC President Sue Gibson, co-moderated the panel and introduced the topic for discussion, opening the floor for a series of questions and answers.
