Society of Camera Operators


About the SOC The Society of Camera Operators began in 1979 as the Society of Operating Cameramen (SOC)—an organization dedicated to the advancement of the art and creative contributions of the camera operator in the motion picture and television industries. Thirteen camera operators banded together with the goal of advancing the position of the working camera operator in the motion picture and television industries. They drew up a Constitution & By-laws and the Society of Operating Cameramen was born. Having since changed its name to The Society of Camera Operators, the SOC continues to bring industry leaders and cinematic artists into close confederation. Society members are kept at the forefront of the industry’s ever-advancing technology through continuing workshops and corporate sponsored equipment showcases. Our Camera Operator quarterly magazine is noted for its significant contribution to the industry. Informative articles and interviews range from historical pieces to in-depth coverage of the most current technology.

Incorporated as a nonprofit charitable organization in 1981, the SOC dedicates its full support to The Vision Center at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Annually, the SOC meets this challenge with proceeds from the Lifetime Achievement Awards. To further honor the talented men and women behind the camera, the first SOC Lifetime Achievement Awards took place in 1981. Since its start, over 100 golden Cammy statuettes have been awarded, along with over 30 Technical Achievement awards.

Our Mission The Society of Camera Operators (SOC) advances the art, craft, and creative contributions of the camera operator. The SOC is an internationally recognized professional honorary Society. The core activities of the Society are the annual SOC Awards, publishing the Society’s magazine Camera Operator, and our charitable commitment to The Vision Center at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Vision is the most important sense that camera operators use in our daily work. As such, it bonds SOC members to children with vision problems.

We serve the SOC membership through our commitment to advancing the role of the camera operator by providing education, supporting the development of technology and production methods, and honoring the members who have served before us.

The Vision Center at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles About The Vision Center The Vision Center at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is an international referral center for children with complex eye diseases. It is one of the few centers in the country to offer expertise in virtually every pediatric ophthalmologic subspecialty. Board-certified pediatric ophthalmologists care for more than 15,000 patients and perform more than 1,500 ophthalmic surgeries each year, making The Vision Center one of the largest, most respected centers of its kind, treating nearly 20 percent of all retinoblastoma cases diagnosed annually in the United States. Among other innovations, physicians at The Vision Center use spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) to diagnose retinal detachment in retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), a potentially blinding eye disorder affecting premature infants, and were the first to combine SDOCT with the novel ocular endoscope to treat ROP. This device grants surgeons the ability to correct this potentially blinding disorder in premature infants.

About Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is a nonprofit pediatric health care organization dedicated to creating hope and building healthier futures for children. Selected as the premier children’s hospital in California and among the top five in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, we treat 107,000 young patients annually from Los Angeles and around the world. As a pediatric charity of choice, the hospital relies on the generosity of the community to support its groundbreaking pediatric research and the complex care it provides for critically ill and injured children.

Distinguished Service Lifetime Achievement Award Denny Clairmont By the time Denny was 12 years old his interest was anything that had an engine in it. He soon got involved in drag racing, and time trials at the dry lakes. Denny and his brother opened a speed shop early in the 1960’s. In 1966 Denny and Terry decided to get involved in motion picture cameras. They wanted to follow in the foot steps of their Cinematographer father, Leonard. Leonard started training Denny and Terry in photography. Denny and Terry both got jobs working at Birns and Sawyer in 1966 with the idea to learn about the cameras and then go out into the field as camera assistants. Denny fell in love with the cameras and lenses. With his experience in racing engines precision cameras became natural. In 1969 Denny became head of the Birns and Sawyer camera and lens department, making precision repairs and modifications. In 1976 Denny and Terry started their own camera rental company with a partner Ed Engle who was a rental sales person at Birns and Sawyer. Engle retired in 1980. Over his career Denny has received the following awards; Two Emmy’s 2001 for designing special lens systems and for designing special camera systems. SOC 2007 the Presidents award. Academy of Motion Pictures 2011 Bonner Award. CSC in 2012 Bill Hilson Award. 2014 ASC Bud Stone Award.

Camera Technician Lifetime Achievement Award John Connor John Connor grew up traveling around the country with his family watching his Father work on movies as a camera assistant. John gradually learned about cameras and the crews behind the scenes growing up. By the time John started high school being on movie sets was second nature. He was so fascinated with the movie making process he wanted to be on set more than school, so he visited every chance possible. After High School the transition into the film industry was natural, starting out as a camera PA until he got a break loading film on a project. He spent the next few years working with his Father and worked his way up to Focus pulling. John‘s desire to improve the tools and techniques used to pull focus spawned new ideas including using wireless focus and monitoring the image remotely on ground cameras, with that John gained the attention needed to work with the top Directors and Cameraman at the time. Tony Scott called on John for a few movies with some of the most difficult focus situations of his career. That work propelled him to an even higher level, putting him in line to work on many of the Top films with amazing Directors and Cinematographers over the next 20 years. Those years and many different projects formed his personality, work ethic and ultimately the passion that drives his creative side today as a Cinematographer and the art of telling stories through moving pictures.

Gilles Corbeil, SOC The Shape of Water

Stephen Campanelli, SOC Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Gilles Corbeil, SOC was born in North Bay Ontario, Canada. His first camera assignment was in third grade covering a school trip. He attended Ryerson Film School and shot docs in Europe during summer breaks. Gilles was DP on several low-budget features including The Brain. While working as 2nd AD on Rin Tin Tin: K-9 Cop, his wife, Christina Kaufmann, convinced producer, Hebert Leonard to give Gilles a shot as operator.

Stephen Campanelli, SOC never realized that the Super 8 films he made as a 12 year-old would ever lead him down the incredible path that has made up his career. Working his way up from camera trainee to A camera operator, Stephen quickly fell in love with the Steadicam, and immediately took the course from the esteemed inventor, Garrett Brown. The rest, as they say is history. In 1994, he hooked up with his boyhood idol, Clint Eastwood, on Bridges of Madison County, and this year will mark their 24th year together as a tight-knit team. Their films include; Million Dollar Baby, Mystic River, and Gran Torino to name a few. Stephen is following in his mentor’s footsteps, as he has recently directed two feature films, Momentum, and the award-winning film, Indian Horse. Stephen is incredibly proud and honored to represent Three Billboards outside Ebbing Missouri as this is his second collaboration with cinematographer, Ben Davis, BSC, and Martin McDonagh, as they also worked together on Seven Psychopaths.

Credits include; Dawn of The Dead, John Rambo, The Corruptor, 16 Blocks, The Recruit, The In-Laws, Hot Tub Time Machine, Spotlight,11.22.63, Umbrella Academy, and for Guillermo del Torro, Mimic, Pacific Rim, Crimson Peak, The Strain, and The Shape Of Water. He holds a U.S. Patent No. US5389987A Titled: A motion translation device for positioning cameras and other aimed instruments.

Camera Operator of the Year - Television Nominees Bob Gorelick, SOC Stranger Things

Daryl Hartwell, SOC Fargo

Gary Jay, SOC House of Cards

Bob Gorelick has been an active camera operator since 1987. He’s a longstanding member of both IATSE and the SOC. In fact, Bob was the recipient of 2009’s Camera Operator of the Year Award for his work on The Dark Knight. Bob has worked on countless feature films, television shows, commercials, live shows, and music videos. While his name has become synonymous with the world of Steadicam, he is proud to have grown to be one of the top A camera operators working today. What Bob is most proud of, and what continues to fuel his inspiration, is the privilege he has to work with so many great cinematographers, directors, camera operators, camera assistants and other hard working and talented crew members for over three decades. Bob will tell you that working on Stranger Things has been one of the most rewarding experiences of his career. He is honored that his work and efforts on this wonderfully successful series is being recognized by his peers today.

A career in the film industry was not something Daryl Hartwell imagined for himself. Growing up in Alberta as the youngest of three brothers, all signs pointed to a future in the family glazing business. In high school, Hartwell found himself in an environment that expanded and nurtured his lifelong love of movies, culminating in a move to Vancouver to follow his dreams. Momentum ramped up as Hartwell worked his way into operating camera after establishing himself as a top-notch dolly grip in the growing film community there. Since then, determination, skill and passion have propelled Hartwell into realizing his dream of operating the A camera. With previous collaborations on Emmy Award-winning projects under his belt, Hartwell is humbled to be recognized for his not only for work on its own merit, but to be acknowledged by so select a group of peers as the SOC. His credits include such projects as; Legion: Season 1, Marvel FX, The Women of Marwen, with director, Robert Zemeckis, and currently shooting the TV series Blue Book.

Gary Jay, SOC started out based in Munich filming documentaries with Dedo Weigert. Upon returning to the states, he joined the camera union and worked as a first assistant for over a decade. After working together on Last of the Mohicans, Dante Spinotti invited Gary to operate on their next film establishing a long and impactful partnership. In 2012, Gary joined the crew of House of Cards. With David Fincher at the helm, the first Netflix streamed series with feature caliber actors and crew attracted him to the project. The quality of the show and the relationships he’s built over the last five seasons have kept him returning. Gary lives in Texas where he and his wife raised three kids, one of whom followed her dad into camera and they are both now in Baltimore finishing the final notorious season.

Brian Osmond, SOC Mindhunter

Ben Semanoff, SOC Ozark

Growing up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and studying computer science was not an obvious path into the film industry for someone. But a couple of diversions led Brian Osmond into still photography and then to filmmaking. He abandoned computers and launched into the movie business at the bottom of the camera department as a camera trainee on Silence of the Lambs. Over the years, he spent time rising through the department, learning from the many wonderful mentors around him and have been operating for over a decade now. Working with David Fincher on Mindhunter was a unique opportunity. The precision and elegance of his work was both challenging and rewarding, and changed how Brian now looks at using the camera to tell stories. He’s been fortunate to work with great people over the years on projects such as; Southpaw, Banshee, The Path, and enjoys each day at the eyepiece.

After graduating from Temple University, Ben Semanoff, SOC started a small production company outside Philadelphia. Fascinated by Steadicam, Semanoff purchased a used rig for his business. This led to an opportunity to work with Garrett Brown deploying SuperFly Cam. Semanoff eventually took over the operation, using the system on such films as Stay, Glory Road, Beverly Hills Chihuahua, and Paddington Bear. His love of operating continued to grow, and he has since operated A-camera/ Steadicam on such films as; Creed, Collateral Beauty, and the upcoming films The Upside and Where’d You Go Bernadette. His work in television includes such shows as; HBO’s The Leftovers, Showtime’s The Affair and was previously nominated for Camera Operator of the Year in 2017 for HBO’s The Night Of. He is based out of New York City, and lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania with his wife and two children.

Ari Robbins, SOC

George Billinger is the current SOC President and is serving as the Chair for this year’s Awards Show Committee. It has been his honor to lead the SOC into 2017. He has continued to expand the relationships with our incredibly talented membership and the SOC’s involvement with our respected corporate members. George has been active as a camera operator since the early 1990s and specializes in Steadicam. He has had the pleasure of working with directors such as Wes Craven, Steven Spielberg, David Lynch, Joss Whedon, Peter Weir, and Spike Lee. His credits include Lincoln, War of the Worlds, Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, Avengers, Oblivion, The Terminal, Ray, Master and Commander, and Terminator Genisys. George resides in Los Angeles, CA.

Ari Robbins was first introduced to Steadicam at the age of 18 after returning home from high school.  Knowing his future lay within the cinematic industry, he was immediately entranced by the notion of operator and equipment working together so intimately. It was a culmination of all things he was looking for -- a career, a hobby, a profession, but most importantly -- a passion. Ari moved to Los Angeles and immediately began working in the lighting departments. In the fall of 2004 he signed up for a Steadicam Operators Association workshop. He searched and found his ideal rig, and on his 21st birthday, purchased his Steadicam. That same day, he rolled his first shot on set as a Steadicam operator and owner. Ari operates with the same enthusiasm he had the first moment he strapped on his vest, with passion first and the camera second.

Dr. C. Thomas Lee

Mitch Dubin, SOC, started his career working as a post-production PA on Apocalypse Now at Zoetrope Studios in San Francisco. During the additional photography of The Black Stallion and Apocalypse Now, he realized working on the set behind the camera was where he wanted to be. Thirty years later, he has been the camera operator on over 80 feature films, including 14 films as the A camera operator for Steven Spielberg. Mitch has been fortunate enough to have worked on many great films with exceptionally talented crews and loves his job.

Eric Fletcher, a native of St. Louis, Missouri, originally had plans to be an aerospace engineer like most of his family. But the lure of bright lights ensured that he enter the film industry. While still living in St. Louis, Eric shot the image campaigns and special project documentaries for the local CBS affiliate, which netted him multiple Emmy wins for best cinematography. After cutting his teeth on music videos and political campaigns, he decided to bring his camera and Steadicam talent to LA, where he’s enjoyed contributing to the iconic looks of TV series such as: Dexter, True Blood, Shameless, and many others. Eric’s interests also include consulting on the development of camera equipment.

Dave Frederick, a 1979 NYU Tisch film school graduate, began his professional career as 1st camera assistant in NYC, working on films ranging from the Coen Brothers’ Blood Simple to Bruce Beresford’s Driving Miss Daisy. Camera operator and Cinematographer since 1986, favorite films and TV series he’s worked on include; Muppets From Space, Mad Love, The Soloist, Northern Exposure, Felicity, Sons of Anarchy, The Bridge, Aquarius, WestWorld, Vida and Get Shorty. Frederick shoots with every camera and format of film and digital, “There is always a story to be told with a camera. Sometimes it’s a lavish epic captured with remote heads, Titan Cranes, helicopters, Steadicam, U/W, Gyro stabilized rigs or large format anamorphic cameras and lenses. Other times, I find myself handheld making shots with the latest small professional digital cameras.”

Dr. Lee earned his MD from Cornell University and went on to Harvard Medical School as a Heed Fellow. Since being recruited to the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Dr. Lee has developed the Retina Institute into a worldclass center and was promoted to director of the Vision Center. He’s made several advances in our understanding of pediatric retinal disease and has recruited a team of physicians and scientists to develop new treatments for several retinal diseases. In addition to developing a robust research program, he’s helped create an innovative education platform to teach doctors in developing countries remotely over the Internet. Dr. Lee’s long-term goal is to create an open online education platform to teach doctors and healthcare workers in developing countries.

Andrew has operated on 344 television episodes, including Touched by an Angel, Everwood, Glee, Scream Queens, The People v. OJ Simpson, and currently Feud. “I love being an operator because it mixes artistic expression, technical knowledge, physicality and social interaction. I’m often teased because I describe shots with sound effects.” Andrew celebrates his 20th year as an operator in 2017. “I have fond memories of tracking my wife around with a wooden mock-up camera on my then newly purchased PRO sled.” Andrew also has a passion for skateboarding and surfing, but when it comes down to it, “I love the work we do, but my greatest joy is my family. Working in television allows me to go home every night.”

Bill Pope shot his first movie, Darkman, in 1990 for Sam Raimi.
