Vitec GTC Awards 2012 Nominees Announced

The Guild of Television Cameramen (GTC) has announced the shortlist for the Vitec GTC Awards 2012.
The awards will be presented at the IET Austin Court conference centre in Birmingham on the evening of Friday 11 May.
"Three notable and independent judges joined GTC Council members to view and deliberate on the nominations," said John Tarby, GTC Awards Event Manager.
"The input from Chris Owen (Head of Cameras, The London Studios) as well as Gwyn Evans (colourist) and Alan Roberts (colour scientist) was invaluable and added a new dimension to the judging process."
The judging panel met early March in the BSC Viewing Room at Pinewood Studios to view the 21 nominations across nine categories as sent in by peer cameramen who are GTC members.
Chris Owen, who chaired the judging panel, said after the judging: "If there was one difficulty we had in supporting some of the nominations, it was the evidence in front of us after the pictures had been heavily edited and effects added to the end result, which may not have shown the true camerawork fully at its best."
