The Governor’s and Service Lifetime Achievement Awards will be presented with SOC’s Cammy Award on Saturday February 6th, 2016 at Paramount Studios.  The black tie event serves as a fundraiser for the Society’s charity, The Vision Center at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Doering is retiring from the International Cinematographers Guild after 30 years. He was succeeded by Rebecca Rhine. He joined ICG as a business representative in 1985 and oversaw contract negotiations and immigration issues. He was appointed National Executive Director in 1993. The ICG recently established the Bruce C. Doering Distinguished Service Award for outstanding contributions advocating policies and legislation favorable to labor workers.

Under Manios’ leadership, Century Precision Optics developed innovative periscopes, low-angle prisms, video lens accessories and custom lens conversions widely used in motion picture and television production. In 1992, he received a Technical Achievement Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for his work in adapting zoom lenses for motion picture use. He also developed specialty lenses and optical devices used by the military and the auto industry.
