“It was a joy, as ever, to welcome patrons, fellow cinematographers, industry colleagues and family and friends, to the Pinewood Studios ballroom for the 2019 Summer Lunch.
The Summer Lunch has a particular and special atmosphere since it brings together colleagues and comrades - as well as husbands, wives and partners - in a relaxed and convivial setting.
This year, the generosity of our industry was reflected in the auctioning of special edition photograph print organised by Mark Purvis of Mission Digital which was created by Seamus McGarvey which quickly generated a winning bid of £2,500, plus another donation raising a total of £4,000.
Mark from Mission said -
Mission is ecstatic to announce that the #printsformark fundraising on behalf of the Mark Milsome Foundation has reached a new level of success.
There was also pleasure in awarding full BSC membership status to Chloe Thomson, a cinematographer of prodigious talent who, I am sure, will be a credit to the Society in the future and an inspiration to other women pursuing the cinematographic path”. Nanu Segal BSC was also invited to the membership but unfortunately unable to attend.
