Mark “Supa” Hayward ACS
It is with overwhelming sadness that I inform you of the passing of our dear friend and colleague Mark “Supa” Hayward ACS, who died suddenly on Thursday, 27th January 2022. Words cannot express the absolute feeling of loss, particularly for his immediate family.
“Supa” had a heart of gold, a unique character with a laconic sense of humour who began his career at Cambridge Films Melbourne in the mid sixties. Firstly as camera assistant to Keith Wagstaff ACS and then as his 2nd unit DOP on “The Man from Snowy River” feature films.
In the seventies, Mark went freelance as a DOP working primarily on top end TVCs, winning awards both here and overseas for his superb cinematography. A long time member of the ACS, Mark served on the committee of the Victorian branch for many years where he was able to share his knowledge freely with workshops for younger cinematographers.
He has been taken from us way too early, and we are now left with fond memories of all who knew and worked with him.
