Jonathan Hall: CINEMATOGRAPHER 323.485.2500


• HD and 4K imaging, are being recognized as a new form of cinematic capture. A majority of my photography lately, has originated on motion picture film, with intent for a digital finish (4k/2k scan). Due to this, I have spent a great amount of time shooting and understanding both high definition (HD) and its relation to the finishing product. I have shot 4 entirely different feature films, utilizing different forms of HD. More often then most, the ideal situation for an HD movie is to emulate a Film Look . This is more than simply throwing grain on the image. I understand electronic optics and matrix levels to the extent that I can make HD intercut with 35mm negative perfectly. Manipulating HD to look like film is not hard to do.

• I have extensive knowledge in action photograph y. I have shot everything: (Chase scenes, car accidents, fires, high-falls, explosions, weapons ect.) I have shot form nearly every moving vessel on the plant: (Boats, high-speed camera cars, helicopters, airplanes, blimps, aircraft carriers ect.) Shooting in these situations require extreme understanding of the mixture of art and physics- I am able to do those equations, and make them look good, all at the same time.
