Said Okada: "Our founders defined the mission for ASC in 1919, when the motion picture industry was still in its infancy. They were dedicated to providing a collegial environment, where members could share ideas and solve problems for the purpose of advancing a New Art form. That remains our top priority today. Our industry is experiencing a renaissance of cinematography and postproduction technology, and the ASC has kept the new techniques focused on visual storytelling." »
