Hello! My name is Melissa Gaudio and I am the daughter of Frank Gaudio and grandaugher of Tony Gaudio (aka Gaetano Antonio Gaudio) and neice of Eugene Gaudio, all cinematographers of the past Hollywood era. My grandpa Tony won an academy award as Director of cinematography in 1936 for Anthony Adverse and was also one of the first Presidents of the ASC from 1924 and 1925, while Eugene was one of the ASC founders. My father followed in his father's footsteps, but never became a director, just an assistant. Back in the day, no credit was given to assistants, so since my father's death in 1989, I have no way of tracing which films he worked on. I registered here today to see if anyone knows of some source that would list non-credited film crews, including assistant camera operators. My daughter actually prompted me to post this, since she is in high school and is taking a class in cinematography which focuses very much on the history of the art. They are watching films in the class that I know my grandfather worked on, but I don't know if my dad did too (since he is not credited). My daughter says she wants to be a cinematographer and follow in the footsteps of her grandfather, great-grandfather and great uncle. I would love to be able to enrich her experience with a more detailed list of movies that my dad worked on, but I cannot find any source online to help me. Any ideas you have would be appreciated. Thanks so much!

If your father belonged to any guilds or unions there should be some record of productions he worked on. I'd start there.
