NELSON VICENS

Hello there! 

 

I am a freelance cinematographer and published writer with experience shooting commercials, music videos, documentaries, reality television and my specialty: narrative films.  I have also won awards for my editing and I pride myself in the attention to detail I put in to every frame of the films I produce.

I excel in creating  high quality, professional images on a tight budget and tight schedule.  I am familiar with working in highly stressful and fast paced environments, while still focusing on capturing beautiful imagery.  I am always up for a new challenge in filmmaking and I love to push myself to new heights with each project I helm.  I am also the proud owner of a RED Scarlet-W :)

Whether it be capturing the right tone and images to reflect a brand, or experimenting with new visual techniques for a music video, I do my best to provide the client with the best and most interesting content.

I look forward to working with you!
