In a recent account of her mentorship experience, @tessgirard describes the journey as transformative. “It’s given me the resources, and confidence to work with larger crews, equipment & setups that I’d never done before. Beyond that, in a full circle moment, on the sets I’ve been working on lately, I strive to create all-female, LGBTQ & BIPOC crews, while also mentoring these individuals. One mentorship multiplies into many.”

The #CSCFieldofView Mentorship Program is not just a program—it’s a pivotal catalyst for cultivating a culture of continuous learning & empowerment. Thank you to our members for your ongoing commitment to this program.
Registration for mentors has been extended until September 30. See link in bio.

The CSC held an unprecedented Virtual Production Masterclass this summer that left participant @gurmeetsingh_dp feeling like “I was entering uncharted territory in cinematography.”
The initiative was the brainchild of @philiplanyon csc (@startreknetflix), who developed the curriculum in conjunction with @bucketheadsfilm creators @marcobossow & @the_real_andy_brown of Transmute Pictures. @christophermably csc (@startreknetflix) also joined in co-teaching the lighting module. The Masterclass is part of the CSC’s effort to fill the labour market gap in virtual production. Read more via the link in bio.

The love for filmmaking starts in childhood. Jon brings us back to the early memory of watching Jurassic Park for the first time with his grandmother. From there, he began making homemade movies with his brothers. The rest is history and a bright future ahead of many more stories to tell.
