The ASC (The American Society of Cinematographers) has been putting on its in-person master class courses for a long time now. In fact, part of its core mission is to provide continuous learning opportunities for both its members and the greater filmmaking community. On top of the education, participants are able to network and brush shoulders with some of the greatest cinematographers in filmmaking history.

In some ways, this was almost a blessing in disguise, because just about anyone could take advantage of this incredible opportunity to learn from master DPs, at least temporarily until the in-person classes resumed.
