My name is Vanessa, and I am an aspiring cinematographer and colourist based in Singapore. 

 

I found my passion in cinematography while undergoing a media course in polytechnic and have since focused my efforts in pursuing a film degree while continuing to work part time in the industry as a camera assistant and camera operator for small events.

 

I approach every project with the goal of giving it a unique identity and think that each story deserves it’s own visual language. I believe that I should never be in the way of the script or performance, but simply let my cinematography be an expression of the truth that the story is telling. 

 

I hope to continue to apply and develop my knowledge in the areas of cinematography and film colouring, and lend my voice as an image maker to more works in the future.
