ACAD Alumni Captures all the Glitz + Glamour at the 2018 Oscars

Internationally based, Photographer and ACAD Alumnus Mark Mennie was once again accredited by AMPAS® (The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences) to be a part of this annual recognition of the motion picture industry. This was his 5th visit to the Carpet, ironically a very private event that invites the world to watch.

Over the years as his access has been further expanded by the Academy®, Mark utilized his accreditation to focus more upon the almost invisible hard work of the Set Builders, Carpenters, Electricians, Painters and even the Carpet Cleaners, leading up to the annual Hollywood event.

Mark published a blog post on Medium telling his story on the Red Carpet for the 5th time. Mark invites you to leave a question or reply, as his career path that began with his graduation from ACA(D) in 1988, the 1st Graduating Class, after a long negotiation with SAIT over our Autonomy; is certainly a unique one, as it involves wearing a Tuxedo on this project, a Flight Suit + Helmet on others, and Playa Ready fashions while capturing at Burning Man.
