Hamilton Watch Hosts 6th Behind The Camera Awards

 

Hamilton will honour the "talented off-screen heroes" of filmmaking at the 6th annual Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards.

The Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards were created to celebrate the talent behind the scenes on a film set. "A costume, a prop or a poignant phrase in the movie script, or a camera capturing the right move, are all key factors contributing to the overall success of a movie," the brand says. The 2012 awards ceremony will be held on October 28th in Los Angeles, in collaboration with luxury lifestyle publication 'Los Angeles Confidential'.
10 key awards will be presented on the night, including best director to Benh Zeitlin for 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' and best screenwriter to Zoe Kazan for 'Ruby Sparks'. The award for Lifetime Achievement in Film Editing will be presented to Michael Kahn - with three Academy Awards (for 'Raiders of the Lost Ark', 'Schindler's List' and 'Saving Private Ryan') and seven Oscar nominations he is the most honoured editor in film history.
