Nic has been in the film industry for over 50 years and is currently a governor on the board of the British Society of Cinematographers. He was a key cinematographers in the 70's-80's pop promo days shooting iconic music videos such as Imagine for John and Yoko, Vienna for Ultravox and Rio for Duran Duran. Recently worked with Director Peter Strickland on Berbarian Sound Studio and The Duke of Burgundy. His latest film is England Is Mine. Nic launched the BSC ‘Retaining The Vision' initiative a couple of years ago following a very unsatisfactory premier of ‘The Duke of Burgundy'.The cinema ambient light was high, the fire door safety lights were too bright and the projector was poorly calibrated. We have forged strong connections with the Phill Clapp (chairman of UKCA), Mike Bradbury (Head of cinema technology at the Odeon) and David Monk (CEO European Digital Cinema Forum) amongst others and have run forums at our BSC Expo shows in London as well as travelling to take part in demonstrations and evaluations on the latest digital cinema projectors, particularly laser powered versions. Along the way we have learnt much about the issues that cinema operators face, both physical and of course financially but have been heartened by the receptiveness to the principle of achieving the best possible viewing environments for our audiences… This ‘our' being the important attitude in embracing the film industry as a whole, through creation of film to showing to audiences.
