Academy Award nominee and ‘American Sniper’ cinematographer Tom Stern, ASC, AFC will appear in a conversation at NAB Show, which takes place in Las Vegas in April. The session, “Heroes, Legends and ‘American Sniper’: A Conversation With Tom Stern” is the Keynote Presentation of the Creative Master Series (CMS) and is produced in partnership with the International Cinematographers Guild (ICG) Local 600. It is scheduled for Tuesday, April 14, 1:45 – 2:45 p.m.
This one-on-one conversation will explore the career of Oscar nominee Tom Stern, whose close association with Clint Eastwood has yielded such critically acclaimed hits as “Mystic River,” “Million Dollar Baby” and “Flags of Our Fathers.” Attendees will learn about Stern’s history as a gaffer, his on-set creative process, his insights into working with crews worldwide, and his experiences using digital capture to visualize 2014’s highest grossing film, “American Sniper.”
Stern joins Creative Master Series participants Robert Yeoman, ASC, (Oscar nominee and cinematographer of “The Grand Budapest Hotel”); Sandra Adair (editor of and Oscar nominee for “Boyhood”); animators and VFX artists of the smash hit video game “Destiny;” and music and SFX craftspeople from various projects including “Gone Girl” and the “Call of Duty” franchise, who will appear as part of a session discussing music selection and production.
“Tom Stern is a consummate craftsman, one who has built an incredible body of work over the course of his career, from ‘Flags of our Fathers’ to ‘The Hunger Games,'” said Chris Brown, NAB executive vice president, Conventions and Business Operation. “His vast base of knowledge will be of enormous value to our attendees, and I join our partners at ICG in welcoming Mr. Stern to the lineup at the 2015 NAB Show.”
