Welcome to the Northern Territory Branch of the ACS

The Northern Territory branch of the ACS was formed in September 2005 and was inspired and driven by founding member David Curl who became our first President. David is a world-renowned nature and wildlife cinematographer whose involvement in the NT film industry has spanned almost a quarter of a century.

Along with other founding members such as Allan Collins ACS the branch grew out of an industry which survives in a landmass representing one-fifth of Australia, with a population of just over 200,000.

Territory Pictures and Postcards

We are putting out the call for awesome pics and/or stories from our ACS NT members (see gratuitous pic of croc below). You may not be as good-looking as the characters below – but send them in anyway.

Send us a couple of lines and a pic to nt@cinematographer.net.au. You can also MMS Andy and we will be grabbing the odd picture from Facebook.
