Michael Goi has been named president of the American Society of Cinematographers.
Goi earned his first narrative film credit for "Moonstalker" in 1987. He received ASC Outstanding Achievement Award nominations for the television projects "The Fixer" (1999) and "Judas" (2005). Last year, Goi also was Emmy-nominated for an episode of "My Name is Earl."
His other credits include "Who Killed Atlanta’s Children?," and the Emmy Award-winning documentary Fired-Up: The Story of Public Housing in Chicago. He recently wrote, produced, and directed the narrative film "Megan is Missing."
Goi says that the current generation of ASC members remains dedicated to the vision of the founders who were devoted to advancing the art and craft of filmmaking.
“We are partnering with the Producers Guild of America on a groundbreaking assessment of film and digital cameras that are currently used during the production of theatrical motion pictures,” he says.
There are 310 active members of the ASC.
