British Society of Cinematographers

The British Society of Cinematographers (abbreviated BSC) was formed in 1949 by Bert Easey (23 August 1901 – 28 February 1973), the then head of the Denham and Pinewood studio camera departments.[1]

The stated objectives at the formation of the BSC were

  • To promote and encourage the pursuit of the highest standards in the craft of Motion Picture Photography.
  • To further the applications by others of the highest standards in the craft of Motion Picture Photography and to encourage original and outstanding work.
  • To co-operate with all whose aims and interests are wholly or in part related to those of the society.
  • To provide facilities for social intercourse between the members and arrange lectures, debates and meetings calculated to further the objects of the Society.

There were originally 55 members. Currently there are 230 full, honorary, associate and patron members. For a British cinematographer, membership of the BSC is an affirmation of the high standard of their craft. The members of the British Society of Cinematographers are entitled to use BSC as postnominals in motion picture and television credits.

In popular culture

In the 1981 film The Great Muppet Caper, Kermit and Fozzie comment on the opening credits as they appear. When the name of the film's cinematographer with its post-nominal letters appears, Fozzie asks, "What does B.S.C. stand for?", to which Kermit perplexedly replies, "I don't know."
