I’m currently studying Film and Television at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts with a concentration in cinematography. While cinema is my passion, my interest in moving pictures stems from my general fascination with the still image—something I hope you’ll find true in my work.
If you’re interested in utilizing my services, I’m always open to collaboration and offer some of my work at www.vincentcota.com as well as contact information in case you like what you see.

Film (Short, Comedy, Drama, Fantasy and 2 More) Camera and Electrical Department 'Coquette' is a tragicomedy drama about a family that discovers a mysterious orphan who can miraculously heal and exploits her to violent and tragic results in their small town. A bleak and fun short film trying to bring a little more surrealism into the world. It is an experimental mishmash of Peter Greenaway, Béla Tarr, Stanley Kubrick, and Roberto Gavaldòn's 'Macario' attempted, with much love and endeavored poetry, in 10 minutes. The bleak and anachronistic setting of the narrative film is placed entirely in a cluttered warehouse, featuring minimalist and deconstructed sets aiming to evoke a metatheatrical portrayal for your enjoyment.
Film (Short and Drama) Cinematographer A teenage girl searches for someone to confide in when her drug-addicted mother loses their home.
