My name is Franz Salvatierra, I am driven by the challenge of pushing cinematic aesthetics without distracting from characters and storytelling. My past positions as cinematographer go back to 2012 and include dance theater collaborations, narrative short and feature length films and music videos.
My approach to cinematography is to focus on the relationships within the story and to collaborate with the director in finding a fitting style. I am passionate about the projects I attach myself to so this collaboration is important to me as believe that better ideas often emerge from mixing perspectives.
I hope to continue to work with such talented directors and on such interesting and varied projects as I have so far.
