MICHAEL ELLIS

Michael DOP’s, Directs and Edits film, content and photographs.  He also manages a traditional film laboratory in Cape Town.  As a seasoned motorcycle rider Michael has broken himself more than once in the constant push to improve his skills.  He has taken this approach to the craft of filmmaking and photography and it’s evident in the results.  Michael combines resourcefulness and creativity scheming new and interesting ways to shoot and achieve shots.  

 

Operating solo or in a large integrated team, he’s travelled and shot his way across Africa and knows what it takes to get the job done under challenging circumstances.  Whether he’s shooting in a clinically sterile medical environment or hanging off the back of a motorcycle capturing shots at breakneck speeds, he lives this passion every day.
