Jury citation.
This was a very difficult decision to make due to the very high quality of all nominees presented. The final choice was made only after a long and spirited discussion by the world-wide jury. Whilst all the films showed a remarkable exhibition of image integration to enhance the script, the jury felt that the use of light, composition, colour and continuity flow in the edit, has provided a superb example of how cinematography can enhance and heighten the meaning of the film.

We feel that Seamus McGarvey BSC ASC has achieved this admirably in “Nocturnal Animals”. …”

Best European Stereography for Kommer Kleijn SBC

Kommer Kleijn SBC, member of the IMAGO Technical Committee and former president of the same, has been bestowed with the “2017 LUMIERE AWARD – EUROPE, Best European Stereography” given out by the Advanced Imaging Society (Formerly known as the ‘International 3D Society’) USA, ‘Stereopsia’ (Formerly 3D Stereo Media), UP3D and BARCO. This is a lifetime achievement award for his 20 years of dedication to S3D as a stereographer, researcher, promoter and educator for S3D.

He received the award during the Awards Gala Dinner of ‘Stereopsia’, in the BOZAR art palace in Brussels, Belgium, from the hands of Sylvain Grain, president of UP3D, the ‘United Professionals of195 k handing over of award Gala Stereopsia 2017  michel houet  tilt a002 Stereoscopic 3D’ and Jacques Verly, professor at the university of Liege and co-creater of “Stereopsia’, international conference and festival for 3D.

Kommer thanked the directors and producers he worked with for creating and supporting the crazy and innovative projects that hopefully brought the medium a little forward and he also thanked the many team members that supported him during these past two decades. He then expressed his hope that global advance in experience with stereography among creative and film makers, and new presentation technologies like laser and emissive screens may in future give stereo 3D the right place in the Audiovisual industry.

IMAGO is very proud and congratulates Kommer for another prestigious award which is well deserved as being our long time member and collaborator.

IMAGO 2017 in review

2017 which is now about to end was a very busy year for IMAGO. Many of the activities took place in several cities gathering thousands of people and cinematographers involved with conferences, festivals, exhibitions, equipment fairs and perhaps culminating in high spirits with the very first IMAGO International awards for Cinematography in Helsinki.
The president of IMAGO resumes in the text below the activities which took all our full attention and dedication. You can find in this articles links direct to photos and videos of the events.
IMAGO board and administration would like to give special appreciation to all member societies and to our sponsors without whom we couldn’t realize these excellent events.

By Paul René Roestad fnf, IMAGO President

In our 25th anniversary year, both the number of IMAGO´s activities and our number of members have been growing steadily. IMAGO now has 53 national Societies and close to 4.500 professional cinematographers as members.
During the last IMAGO General Assembly, the Hong Kong Society of Cinematographers, the Malaysian Society of Cinematographers, The Singapore Society of Cinematographers and the Peruvian Society of Cinematographers were voted in as IMAGO members. We welcome them all warmly!

The main 2017 IMAGO Activities
The year started with IMAGO Board members attending the BSC Expo in London early February, where we had useful talks with many of our partners.
March: The IMAGO/HFF educational conference in Munich in cooperation with BVK and the German Film School HFF. The conference was arranged by IMAGO Education Committee, headed by Tony Costa. With more than 130 participants from all over the World, it was a great success, showing that education is a topic of great interest among our members.

In April IMAGO cooperated with the Slovenian Society of Cinematographers ZFS on an important conference on archiving our film heritage, in Ljubljana. → continue…
