About Jorel

I am an American / European Cinematographer and Director. I own and operate an Arri Alexa Mini, and have worked on all major cinema cameras. I have access to many sets of lenses. I mostly shoot on my partners UltraScope Anamorphic's from 1950. It is the only full set in the country and they are the same set of lenses that Sergio Leone used to shoot the majority of his Westerns with. I also have access to a 5 ton G&E truck and work regularly with Dayton Nietert as my Gaffer. See his accomplishments here: ?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

I was raised in the States, though after living in the EU for over 7 years, I became a duel citizen, thus I am a great option for overseas projects.

The most recent features I've worked on are the Blumhouse Horror film: HURT, suspense thriller "BURNING SHADOW" with Julie Delpy, and am in development to shoot and direct a feature film in MAY 2019.

I have been in the industry for 16 years, and began my journey after film school in the acting track, as I found it easier to become involved in larger scale projects, though I studied cinematography and learned shooting 16mm film.

I am working freelance and am always available to talk about potential projects. My life is truly dedicated to the craft. The work is the most important thing in my life. Let's make solid, high-level content!

Unique traits: I play Jazz saxophone very well. I can do a few accents. Scottish being my favorite. I won the best actor award in the 1st International Beijing Theatre Festival in 2005. I've acted in theatre and film in Paris, London, NYC, and LA. I'm a great cook, and always have very good catering on my sets!
