Message from the President

"One more question. How are you going?"

Greetings everyone,

I know it’s Awards time, but I feel it’s an opportunity to remind you all about the importance of prioritizing the topic of Mental Health.
Our industry experiences many highs and an equal number of lows. Those lows can prove to be difficult to deal with and are often not recognized and dealt with in some way.

There are often no warning signs, and many things, including; lack of work, feeling unwanted or unappreciated, lack of confidence, getting older, relationship breakdowns, financial concerns to mention but a few can bring on these moments of doubt and fear. Sound familiar?
Cinematographers are like any creative person who rely and depend on an accolade, a compliment or positive feedback to give them re-assurance until the phone rings with that next booking. It’s a fine line, but people need to be aware that it’s not necessarily “what you say” it’s “how you say it”.
Lets continue to raise our awareness and try not to experience losing another life that could have been saved. Look for the possible warning signs, ask people how they are and if they need a hand, offer yours, it could be as simple as that!
The ACS feels very strongly about anything that could seriously affect the welfare of any of our ACS members and all crew members working honestly and diligently for a day’s pay to provide for their families.

Until next time
Ron Johanson OAM ACS
National President
