TWO A.S.C. DIRECTORS OF PHOTOGRAPHY HONORED WITH "EMMY" AWARDS BY TELEVISION ACADEMY

At the recent 26th annual Emmy Awards ceremony of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, held at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre, two members of the American Society of Cinematographers were awarded golden statuettes for outstanding achievement during the past year.

The award for "Best Cinematography for Entertainment Programming For a Special or a Feature-length Program Made for Television" went to Ted Voightlander, ASC, for his work on the CBS Special, "It's Good to Be Alive".

Voightlander was also voted "Cinematographer of the Year".

The award for "Best Cinematography for Entertainment Programming For a Series or a Single Program of a Series" went to Harry Wolf, ASC, for his work on the "Any Port in a Storm" segment of the "COLOMBO" series.

The members of A.S.C. extend their heartiest congratulations to these two gentlemen for their outstanding achievement.

SMPTE SETS FALL CONFERENCE IN TORONTO

SMPTE heads north of the border this fall for its 116th Technical Conference and Equipment Exhibit. The dates are Nov. 10 through 15 and the site is the all-new Four Seasons Sheraton Hotel in Toronto.

This is the first time since 1961 that SMPTE has journeyed to Toronto for its semiannual conference, though, since that time, two meetings were held in Montreal. The history of Canadian SMPTE Conferences has been a bright one, with all of them being outstanding successes, both in the quality of the technical sessions and the participation in the equipment exhibit of major manufacturers and distributors of professional film and TV equipment. Attendance at these Canadian meetings has always been high and this one is expected to draw record crowds from the United States, Canada and from such far-flung outposts as Japan, Australia, most European countries, and Russia. Canadian Conferences are always marked by unending enthusiasm of the Canadians. They deserve their reputation for hospitality and congeniality. It's no wonder that the SMPTE looks to this Toronto Conference with great expectations.

The responsibility for the Conference is in good hands. SMPTE Editorial Vice-President Gerald Graham, himself a Canadian with the National Film Board of Canada, has ultimate responsibility for the technical papers program. He has appointed Maurice French, Canadian Broadcasting Corp., as Program Chairman, a tough job in which he must put together a strong 5-day papers program combining many diverse areas in motion-picture and television technology. Graham expressed confidence that French will, like his predecessors, take advantage of this opportunity to make this Conference Program a memorable one. Assisting French as Associate Program Chairman is Harold Eady, Bonded Services International.

SMPTE Conference Vice-President Harry Teitelbaum, Hollywood Film Co., has appointed Alex MacGregor, O.E.C.Á., Local Arrangements Chairman. This job requires the supervision of all details and arrangements of the Conference not having to do with the papers in the program. Teitelbaum, who has final authority for all SMPTE Conferences, voiced great faith in MacGregor, and the Arrangements Committee under him. The Canadians have always put on a good show.

Information on this Conference is available from SMPTE Headquarters, Att: Conference Dept., 862 Scarsdale Ave., Scarsdale, N. …
