Cinematographers in Solidarity
GSOC is reporting that the Cinematographers Guild, IATSE Local 600, announced it has severed ties with NYU Film School until GSOC is recognized by NYU. Here's the official e-mail:
To whom it may concern:Thank you John Amman and the rest of IATSE Local 600! In solidarity.
I wish to inform you that the Cinematograhpers Guild, IATSE Local 600 has severed its relations with the NYU film program. In the past members of our guild regularly lectured at the Film School, served on panels and invited faculty and students to out seminars. I have informed Jeremiah Newton at the film school that we can no longer be involved with NYU when the university refuses to recognize GSOC/Local 2110 UAW.
We wish you all the best in your efforts.
Cinematograhpers Guild, IATSE Local 600
