Lou Chantry

Director of photograpy-60:00 To live or die

Lou has been involved in film since the early 80's, working his way up the crew ladder from gaffer to director of photography.  Along the way, he has seen almost every variation of film-making and every style of filmmaker. 

He completed his first feature as DP and joined the Society of Camera Operators (SOC) in the mid-90's and has been involved in the intricacies of the new digital formats.  He has had first camera responsibility for projects from national and regional commercials to music videos in the Country, Rock/Pop and Americana genres (as well as a host of indie features). 

Whether he is working with academy award winners or actors in their first feature appearance, Lou's goal is to capture not only the shot but also the image and ambiance of the director's vision.
