10/28 at 3:30pm at Honolulu Academy of Arts Doris Duke Theater

Join this year's recipient of the Kodak Vision Award for Cinematography, Allen Daviau (E.T., EMPIRE OF THE SUN, FEARLESS, VAN HELSING) for an intimate seminar on the art and technique of cinematography. Daviau will be discussing all facets of his work, including lighting techniques, camera moves, and angles he used to create his vision, as well as answering audience questions. A special FREE screening of EMPIRE OF THE SUN, one of Daviau's films, will be held on Wednesday, October 27, 8:15pm at the Signature Dole Cannery Theatres. Admission is open to all with a flash pass or a free ticket (limit 2) from the box office.

Allen Daviau, ASC began his career shooting commercials and music promos in Los Angeles, after an interest in color television inspired a young Daviau to study photography. As soon as he was of age, he began working in camera stores and photo labs, including Technicolor. He also shot his own still photography and designed the stage lighting for several plays and operas. His early work encompassed music promotional films and student films, as well as serving as cinematographer for a pop music show for KHJ-TV and working as a still photographer for the band The Monkees.

He already had three independent feature credits when Steven Spielberg noticed one of his TV movies and hired him to shoot his first mainstream feature: E.T.: THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL. The experience earned the first of five Oscar nominations for Daviau and launched his career as one of the industry's leading cinematographers. Other Academy Award nominations followed, for THE COLOR PURPLE, AVALON, EMPIRE OF THE SUN and BUGSY. He won ASC Outstanding Achievement Awards for the latter two films and the British Academy Award for Empire.

His body of narrative film work includes THE FALCON AND THE SNOWMAN, DEFENDING YOUR LIFE, FEARLESS, THE ASTRONAUT'S WIFE AND VAN HELSING. David Wenham, also attending LVHIFF 2004, worked with Allen Daviau in VAN HELSING. Daviau has represented the American Society of Cinematographers and the International Cinematographers Guild on the Artists Rights Foundation and he has made several trips to Washington, D.C., to lobby for both artists' rights and film preservation issues. ~ CREATIVE TALENT COMMUNICATIONS/WWW.CTC-PR.COM
