Anna Meszaros

Statement

I am an aspiring cinematographer and camera operator with experience in various production roles. I have worked on a wide range of productions from short films and commercials to music videos.

During my studies I've gained experience in various camera/lighting department roles, such as camera assistant, camera operator and gaffer. For my specialist practice "The Dancer" I've chosen to do camera operating, using the Ronin II camera gimbal to perfect camera movements and evolve my craft as a cameraperson.

I've also written and directed a short film called "Nina's Tale", where I worked with many talented people, who put their hearts into the project. During this production I gained a better understanding of the development process and how each department adds into creating the characters and storylines.

At the moment I am looking for a camera assistant/trainee positions to immerse in the craft of cinematography.
