"Our members conceived this annual competition to let our peers know that their colleagues believe they have set the contemporary standard for artful cinematography," says ASC Awards Committee Chairman Richard Crudo. "It requires mastering a complex craft which enables them to help create a sense of time and place while evoking emotions that augment the intentions of everyone involved in the collaborative process."
