Aleksei Vanamois [ CINEMATOGRAPHER ] Director of Photography


Aleksei Vanamois [ Cinematographer ] Director of Photography

He kicked off his career as a graphic designer developing a strong visual sense and imagination with a diverse skill set that includes: Drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, illustration, motion design, branding, marketing, interface design, and programming.

Since then, he developed knowledge and ability in the following fields: Electronics, networking, computing systems, industrial design, textiles, engineering, mechanics, carpentry, science, optics, and chemistry.

It wasn't long before Cinematography became an obsession where he can apply his craft and technical know-how solving any number of problems with the barest of resources.

New capabilities continue to develop everyday with proficiencies in editing, lighting, camera technology, colour grading, and more recently, drone operation, VFX and Virtual Production.

He has contributed time as the Australian Cinematographer Society NSW Branch Secretary, and occasionally works as a lecturer sharing his insights and philosophies into the craft of film making.

Currently working with the Heretic Foundation team fronted by the renowned director Alex Proyas to produce VFX heavy motion pictures that utilise Virtual Production & Unreal Engine.

…what would be next to feed a creative and deeply analytical mind. Maybe I could help craft your next motion picture or build a spaceport on Mars!
