Esteemed cinematographer Allen Daviau, ASC will join the part-time faculty at Art Center College of Design. Daviau, whose credits include classic films such as E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, The Color Purple, Bugsy, as well as recent hits like Van Helsing, will teach a master class in cinematography.
The five-time Academy Award nominee is also a recipient of a BAFTA award as well as a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Cinematographers.
“Having an artist of Allen’s caliber teach a master cinematography class is emblematic of what makes the Art Center Film program so unique,” says Ross LaManna, chair of undergraduate film at Art Center College. “We believe visual storytelling skills are taught best by those doing the best work themselves.”
Located in Pasadena, Art Center College of Design attracts numerous students for both undergraduate and graduate programs. It was the first design school to receive the United Nations’ Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) status.
