News Image
Miller Camera Support Equipment has partnered with the Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS) to create a new industry award for the ACS National Awards for Cinematography.

The Bob Miller – ACS Technical & Innovation Achievement Award has been developed in honour and memory of fluid head inventor Bob Miller and will be officially introduced to industry professionals at the ACS headquarters on July 31.
"The man who invented the fluid action head, Bob Miller prided himself on his abilities to develop ground-breaking solutions and to problem solve," says Mark Clementson, Managing Director, Miller Camera Support Equipment.
"Together with his father Eric, who patented the fluid head and provided necessary financial support, Bob revolutionised the film and television industry with his invention, allowing operators the freedom to shoot creatively and to achieve shots once deemed unobtainable.
"This prestigious, new award is a fitting tribute to the memory of Bob and a great reward for the recipient, who will have contributed to the advancement of technology in cinematography as Bob himself once did with his inventive camera support solutions."
The Bob Miller – ACS Technical & Innovation Achievement Award will come with $1,000 cash, a $2,000 Miller product prize and a framed certificate. The winner will also have his or her name engraved onto one of Miller's LP '54 Classic tripods, which will reside on display at the ACS National Headquarters in Sydney, Australia.
Speaking at the July 31 unveiling will be Oscar-winning cinematographer Russell Boyd, ACS, ASC, who was inducted into the ACS Hall of Fame in 1998.
"The ACS is honoured to have helped create this award with Miller, as we believe that it will carry enormous credibility within the greater community of esteemed cinematographers worldwide, such as Russell Boyd," says Ron Johanson, OAM ACS, National President of the ACS.
"Bob Miller was a man constantly on the cusp of technological innovation, much like our industry members. We look forward to awarding an ACS member with the Bob Miller – ACS Technical & Innovation Achievement Award as a testament to that member's pursuit of excellence in cinematic development."
