The South African Society of Cinematographers have created a new association for specialist camera operators, called the South African Society of Operators (SASO).
SASO is open to specialist operators who, as yet, do not qualify for full membership within the SASC, and include aerial, drone, water, steadicam and tracking camera operators.
Operators wishing to join must be active in the camera department, and can submit samples of their work to the SASC board for evaluation.
SASC president Uwe Beckmann says that the principal benefit to SASO members is the reputation the society’s members have for quality work.
Operators interested in joining SASO can co09tact firstname.lastname@example.org
