Dinner and Talk, Thursday 4th October.
7.30pm, Waterfront Hotel, Lapta. A talk entitled “Behind the Lens at ITN” by ITN Cameraman, Gary Mullins. Cameramen are often the unsung heroes of films, television entertainment and news programming. While those in front of the lens garner the attention and glory, cameramen do much more than simply record the action for posterity. Good cameramen (also referred to as Camera Operators) provide the expertise and know-how to allow producers, directors and reporters to present stories visually through the use of proper angles, vantage points, lighting and close-ups. Gary Mullins will enthral  with a talk about his experiences as a top ITN cameraman. Tickets cost 20Tl for members and 25TL for non-members, and include a curry dinner.
