The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) held its 25th Annual ASC Outstanding Achievement Awards ceremony on Sunday, February 13, 2011 in Los Angeles. Normally, this type of awards doesn't affect anyone in the Orlando market. This time around, a student filmmaker from Full Sail made the list.
Full Sail graduate Boyd Hobbs was bestowed with the 2011 William A. Fraker Heritage Award for outstanding artistic achievement in student filmmaking. He garnered the award for his work as DP on the 35mm student short film Loves Me Not. Hobbs was the winner as an undergraduate. The graduate student award winner went to Dagmar Weaver-Madsen of UCLA.
Established to recognize talented undergraduate, graduate or recently graduated cinematography students, the ASC annual Heritage Award was dedicated this year to the memory of the legendary cinematographer, William A. Fraker who earned Oscar nominations for his work on such notable films as Heaven Can Wait (1978), WarGames (1983) and Murphy’s Romance (1985).
