The ABC John Bean ACS Memorial Scholarship for Cinematography, established in 2012, recognise and honours the talent of the late John Bean ACS, an alumnus of Griffith Film School (GFS).
The biennial scholarship encourages excellence in cinematography and supports the ongoing study of a talented student in the field of cinematography, with a focus on documentary.
$25,000 Cash donation towards the enrolment of the Master in Screen Production at Griffith Film School plus an intensive internship with the ABC News camera crew for a total period of 6 weeks.
The scholarship is valued at $25,000, paid in instalments, and an intensive internship with the ABC News camera crew for a total period of 6 weeks.
Scholarship monies will be issued in two payments, direct to your nominated bank account, after the first trimester census date for each year of study;
$16,500 paid in 2019
$8,500 paid in 2020. (Conditional to the successful completion of, or every effort made to complete, the internship period in year one).
Internship dates are to be mutually agreed and scheduled prior to the University Census dates. The best times for internships (according to program production) are either February to May or July to October. The internship can be arranged to take place in any national location. travel and accommodation costs are at the scholarship winner’s own expense and the internship location will take account of this.
For university or college students of film, film production, or cinematography at the undergraduate or graduate levels in a degree or diploma program. Nominations must be made by the school department or program official.

3D cinema is experiencing a burst of popularity unmatched since the early 1950’s. Along with the advances in projection technology and film capture we have seen a growing interest in the human perceptual factors that determine the success of a given technique. It is an exciting time to study stereoscopic vision and we are pleased to announce that a post-doctoral position is available at York University’s Centre for Vision Research, to do just that.
We are seeking an enthusiastic collaborator to participate in research in 3D (stereoscopic) cinema. The position is funded via an exciting multidisciplinary grant awarded to Rob Allison (Department of Computer Science and Engineering), Ali Kazimi (Department of Film) and Laurie Wilcox (Department of Psychology). The project will investigate a number of issues related to the capture and production of 3D film and will involve close collaboration with several industrial partners.
The candidate should have a PhD in a field related to the visual sciences and a background in visual psychophysics. We are seeking someone with a keen interest in stereoscopic vision and 3D cinema, so experience in this domain would be helpful. The post-doctoral fellow will design, conduct and analyse experiments that will use fundamental psychophysical methodology to evaluate both basic and applied research questions. Ideally we are looking for an individual who is familiar with programming for behavioural experiments, who is technically capable and who has interest or experience in digital media. The successful candidate will focus primarily on perceptual and human factors issues, but s/he will work closely with team members from the Future Cinema Lab in the Faculty of Fine Arts. They will also be encouraged to pursue their own research goals and to interact with the other members of the Centre for Vision Research and the Future Cinema Lab.
