Michael Goi, ASC has been elected to serve a third term as president of the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC). The other ASC officers also voted in are Vice Presidents Richard Crudo, Owen Roizman and John C. Flinn, III; Treasurer Victor J. Kemper; Secretary Fred Goodich; and Sergeant at Arms Stephen Lighthill.
“I am honored to be re-elected by a membership that is filled with tremendously talented and accomplished artists,” said Goi in a statement. “It is a privilege to represent an organization that is committed to educating aspiring filmmakers, as well as advancing and protecting our art form.”
During his previous tenure, Goi oversaw the society’s first International Cinematography Summit Conference, which hosted cinematographers from across the world. Also, a program called Friends of the ASC was introduced in 2010 to support the ASC’s primary goal of educating budding filmmakers, which offers unprecedented access to exclusive content about lighting, camerawork and associated technologies, as well as access to industry events featuring ASC members.
Goi began his career shooting PBS documentaries while still a student at Columbia College Chicago, and subsequently earned over 50 credits on narrative films and episodic television programs, recently earning an Emmy nomination for an episode of “My Name is Earl.” Goi is a member of both the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Academy of Television Arts And Sciences, and, in addition to his work with ASC, serves on the National Executive Board of the International Cinematographers Guild.
