12: David Muir, Cinematographer

David Muir is a recognised mentor, film teacher and advocate for Australian film. He served for decades on ACS Committees in NSW and Victoria, including four terms as Victorian President. David also served on the AFI Board judging film festivals and awards. His teaching career includes teaching cinematography at AFTRS, Macquarie and La Trobe Universities along with Footscray College and The Victorian College of the Arts. David was also my mentor, although I suspect he didn't realise that. As a budding cinematographer I was always pestering David for advice. He not only happily gave me the advice but he was also incredibly supportive and encouraging as I was finding my way. It's largely due to David that I received such a fantastic foundation as a Cinematographer which went on to serve me so well and I transitioned into the role of a Colorist.I hope you thoroughly enjoy this conversation - you'll notice that I sound a bit like a school kid and say 'gosh' quite a bit because I'm so in awe of David!!!! Thanks for listening.The podcast is brought to you by lowepost.com and Ravengrade.com
