I had the pleasure of working with 3 very talented directors over 3 seasons, each on their first episode of Network Television and all three were nominated for a Leo!

Van Helsing Season 5 was the 1st Network show back from Covid

We started the season shooting in Castles in Slovakia. As the first 3 episodes were set in the 13th Century the night shots were lit by candles and ‘moonlight’. I used Vantage Hawk lenses and RED Helium cameras because we were going to be shooting in low light levels. We got back to Canada just before Europe was shut down.

Back in Canada we stood down for 3 months due to Covid but we were the first show to return to work North America. I’m happy to say that we adhered to the Covid protocols that had been set up for our safety and had no issues at all.

 

 

NZSC Accreditation

New Zealand Cinematographers Society

ACCREDITATION RECIPIENTS 2020

NZCS accreditation is recognition as a master cinematographer with a substantive body of work that reaches a consistently high, world-class standard. A prestigious accomplishment which ordinarily we would celebrate out our black-tie Awards ceremony, which was deferred last year due to Covid-19 restrictions.

NZCS accreditation is not easily achieved. It recognises professional accomplishment within the field or genre in which you work and the letters 'NZCS' after your name is seen locally and internationally as recognition of skill and experience.

Therefore, it gives us great pleasure to introduce you to the 2020 recipients:

- Neil Cervin NZCS CSC

- Mark Lapwood NZCS ACS

- Jacob Bryant NZCS

Congratulations on your well-deserved recognition!!
