Nick Murray has recently been given an award for ‘Outstanding Contribution’ by the Guild of Television Camera Professionals (GTC). The ceremony took place at the Annual General Meeting and Awards Day held on 3rd June. For the first time, the Awards Day was held at Brooklands Museum, currently a nominee for Museum of the Year 2018.
Outstanding Contribution Award
This is the first time this award has been presented by the GTC. Recipients are nominated by GTC members. Unfortunately, Nick was unable to attend the ceremony, so his ‘Outstanding Contribution’ award was collected by Paul ‘Biff’ Baldwin who works alongside Nick, operating the camera mounted to the ACS Tracking Vehicle
. Nick was awarded ‘Outstanding Contribution’ for his work on the ACS Tracking Vehicle
delivering coverage of the action for ITV Racing
including Royal Ascot, The Grand National and Cheltenham Gold Cup.
Nick’s ability during the racing to check his position via the wing mirror, take note of the shot on the dashboard monitor and assess the track conditions is a credit to his professionalism and dedication. He is definitely one of the unsung heroes of the crew.
In addition to operating the ACS Tracking Vehicles
, Nick also manages the delivery and installation of all of ACS’ specialist cameras for ITV Racing.
