Sue Gibson Becomes First Lady President of British Society Of Cinematographers

The British Society of Cinematographers has announced the appointment of their first lady President, Director of Photography Sue Gibson BSC.
Sue was the first woman to be invited to join the Society in 1992 and was elected to the Board of Governors in 2004.
Graduating from the National Film and Television School in 1981, Sue began her career photographing TV commercials worldwide, receiving recognition from the British Television Advertising Awards, the Designers and Art Directors Association and the Cannes International Advertising Festival.
Her first feature film was 'Hear My Song', directed by Peter Chelsom in 1989, which won the Evening Standard Award for Technical Achievement, followed in 1990 by 'Secret Friends', the last film directed by Dennis Potter, garnering her an additional Evening Standard Film Award in 1992.
Sue has since photographed many more features including 'Mrs Dalloway', 'Londinium', 'The Search For John Gissing' and 'Mrs Caldicot's Cabbage War' as well as 2nd unit for 'Resident Evil' and 'Alien Versus Predator'.
Her TV credits include 'Amongst Women', which won the Irish Film and TV Academy Award for Best Craft contributors; 'The Forsythe Saga' (2002 version); 'Miss Marple'; 'Poirot' and 'Jericho' for Granada; 'Riot At The Rite' for BBC2 and she also set the style for the successful BBC series 'Spooks' for Kudos Films.
In addition to her work as a D.O.P., Sue has been mentoring and tutoring students at the National Film and Television School and London College of Communication (LCC) helping to preserve the future of the industry.
Recently, Sue has been extensively involved filming comparison tests with various digital and photographic image capture systems for presentation at BSC Film, Digital and HD events. These are open to all departments of the industry and designed to explain in a simple and informative manner the currently available choices for making broadcast and theatrical images.
Sue is supported in her new post by Immediate Past President Gavin Finney, Vice Presidents Joe Dunton, Alec Mills, Chris Seager & Nigel Walters and Governors Sean Bobbitt, John Daly, John de Borman, Harvey Harrison, Tony Imi, Phil Meheux, Nic Morris, Tony Spratling, Mike Southon, Derek Suter and Robin Vidgeon.
