Miller Attends Australian Cinematographers Society Awards

News Image
Miller Camera has attended the 43rd Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS) National Awards for Cinematography to host a charitable raffle, from which all proceeds were donated to the Motion Picture Industry Benevolent Society (MPIBS). The event marked the continuation of Miller's 60th anniversary celebrations, awarding cinematographer and ACS member Peter Heap with a Miller LP '54 Classic Tripod.

"Numerous ACS members have used, or still own, Miller tripods; in fact, many still own our original wooden tripods that were developed more than 30 years ago," said Mark Clementson, Managing Director, Miller Camera Support Equipment. "We chose to host the charitable raffle at this event as a way of giving back and showing our appreciation to the many industry members who have supported us over the years."
"I feel like I've won two prizes – the first was the chance to donate to the MPIBS and the second was to actually win the LP '54," Mr Heap said. "I used to lug these tripods around as an assistant cameraman at The ABC, Australia's public broadcaster. And now I have the luxury of owning one in pristine condition, and I don't have to lug it anywhere. I can't think of a better arrangement."
"Miller is honoured to be able to support the MPIBS in its efforts, and we would like to thank everyone who took the time to participate in the raffle and donate to this incredible organisation," added Clementson.
To conclude the eventful evening, and in keeping with Miller's family-founded values, Clementson surprised his brother, Grant, former managing director at Miller, by gifting him a LP '54 Classic Tripod of his own in recognition of his recent retirement.
Miller has been supporting the ACS as a Gold Sponsor since the organisation's inauguration in 1958. Approximately 180 cinematographers, industry veterans and sponsors from across the globe attended the evening gala and a total of 17 Golden Tripods were awarded.
