It's just hit or miss in terms of who is in town at the moment and not working over the weekend. Not all ASC members live in the Los Angeles area. And many are working in shoots all around the world. But generally there is a sizable turnout of members (including many famous members) and students, etc.

Years ago, I went to the clubhouse (before I was a member) and Sven Nykvist was there because of the special lifetime achievement award he was getting. He was surrounded by people and I lost my nerve and couldn't bring myself to talk to him, he was so imposing and I was so much in awe. Had the same trouble the first time I had a chance to speak to Storaro; just didn't know what to say to him without sounding like a gushing fan.

Now I regret missing the opportunity to talk to Nykvist.

HO HO, I know how that feels, were cinematography.com a debate hall and not a forum I would spend most of my time looking at the floor, and whenever you came in I would suddenly get very engrosed in the nearest large book that I can hide behind.

Did you ever think for a moment at that point that you may become a member?

Hi,

I don't get that problem at all. What're you going to say to him; what's he going to say to you in the nine seconds you're going to converse that's somehow going to affect anything? If I have a reason to speak to someone, fine; otherwise, what's the point?

Well, that was the problem -- often when I strike up a conversation with some famous DP, it's because there was some burning question I always wanted to ask them. But with some DP's, I know their work SO well that I can't think of anything to say to them other than how much I like their work, which is fine except at a large event, I'll just be one of a hundred people saying that.

Since there's no way of me making it this year, I expect to be a part of the live chat!

This is from a recent email I received:

The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) will host its annual Open House and Live Internet Chat with many of the world?s most talented filmmakers on Saturday, Feb. 17, the day before the 21st Annual ASC Awards. The ASC Clubhouse (1782 N. Orange Dr., Hollywood) will be open for visitors from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. (PST), and the Internet chat will begin on the ASC Web site (www.theasc.com) at 12 p.m. (PST).

?The primary purpose of this annual celebration is to recognize and applaud the artistry of our peers,? says ASC President Daryn Okada. ?We hope it will also inspire other cinematographers to pursue their dreams and help foster a broader appreciation of the role cinematographers play in the collaborative art of visual storytelling.?

Participants in the events are expected to include:

Michael Ballhaus, ASC - International Award

Allen Daviau, ASC - Lifetime Achievement Award

Gerald Hirschfeld, ASC ? Presidents Award

Donald M. Morgan, ASC - Career Achievement Award in Television

Ron Howard - Board of Governors Award

The 2006 Feature Film nominees are Emmanuel Lubezki, ASC, AMC (Children of Men); Dick Pope, BSC (The Illusionist); Robert Richardson, ASC (The Good Shepherd); Dean Semler, ASC, ACS (Apocalypto); and Vilmos Zsigmond, ASC (The Black Dahlia).

Nominees in the Television Movie/Miniseries/Pilot category are Thomas Del Ruth, ASC (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip-Pilot); Adam Kane (Heroes-Pilot); Walt Lloyd, ASC (The Librarian: Return to King Solomon?s Mines); Bill Roe, ASC (Day Break-Pilot); and John Stokes (?Umney?s Last Case,? Nightmares and Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King).

I think it's an 8-hour difference -- i.e. Noon in Los Angeles is 8PM in London.

Count your blessings, I'll be setting cues for a production of "Moonlight and Magnolias" when the live chat's on. Go see this play if you get a chance, it's a comedy about when David Selznick, Ben Hecht, and Victor Fleming spent five days locked up in an MGM lot bungalow rewriting the screenplay for "Gone With The Wind". It's kinda fun to be mixing my two manias, film and stage, at the same time.
