CSI Chapter:


Welcome to CSI's Australian and New Zealand Chapter! This space is dedicated to local members to communicate, network, share and discover events, showcase work and techniques, and to be publicly discovered by producers and productions looking for work.

The feedback from fellow colourists encouraged the creation of this space - a space for local colourists, by local colourists. There is a want for the CSI to offer more for local members, and for membership fees to come back and enhance the offerings and events locally.

Our objective is to build a strong community, so we’d encourage feedback on what you’d like to see from your local chapter, including events, training sessions, hands on with new equipment, engagement with other societies including the ACS, NZCS and more.

We’re looking to build a detailed list of colourists from every state and territory, so please check your CSI member settings to make sure you’ve listed a business address otherwise the search filters will not work. With the updated details we’ll have a great community we can keep in touch with, and producers and production companies will be able to find local colourists too.

Thanks for being with us. We’re looking forward to building this community together.
