a quick note from Carlos
Cinematographers of color do exist and you should be hiring us.
Can you imagine gearing up for a production and being part of a Society designed for you? This means that you could easily reach out to a mentor for advice or receive discounted rental rates from your local production rental company for just simply being an active member. How about being able to cultivate a relationship with your favorite lens company or work closely with an exclusive product for your next project? It's no secret that the film industry is white male dominated and for a person who is of "non-white" descent, navigating throughout the industry will certainly have its challenges and while some of them are unforeseen and the others can be racially discriminant. The Society for Cinematographers of Color has now entered the chat. As we move forward, what better way to empower the next wave of cinematographers that reflect all of the underrepresented ethnic communities across the globe?
Imagine Lighting and DP workshops being hosted in your city by creators that represent you. Learn about working with lighting for diverse skin tones and crafted storytelling camera techniques to improve your cinematography. Representation matters and can birth more opportunities just by caring about the communities you serve. The SCC is here and it is ready to provide to you.
"The SCC is an opportunity to groom and train the current and next wave of creators who are seeking a career in the industry. As creators, it takes a village, network and then talent to be able to maneuver in "Hollywood" - Michael Noir, SCC Co-Founder
The Society for Cinematographers of Color is inspiring change.
