Heather Norton wins national moviemaker award


Heather Norton, who grew up on the Island on Norton Farm, and is a graduate of MVRHS and of Barnard College in New York, will be receiving this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of Camera Operators (SOC) in Los Angeles on Jan. 18. She will be the first woman to receive this award from the SOC in the Camera Technician category.

Norton told The Times in an email that she “wants to share this honor with her adored Martha’s Vineyard family and community, which sent her off into the world believing that the arts are what make communities and humans thrive on this earth together,” and sends great thanks to the community.
