Kieran Jones

Statement

I am a dedicated and driven filmmaker, with a deep love and creative passion for the world of cinematography. In my work, I strive to capture the moments in life that are not noticed by the average eye. The wonderful, yet hidden moments from nature to human interaction, as well as the beauty in imperfections.

I specialise in shooting on celluloid film, especially 16mm and Super 8 which, for me, is the best format to capture these moments, as well as for making films. Despite this, I also like to think I have extensive knowledge in modern camera technology as well as pre-digital.

I hope that my career will be able to eventually take me into documentary filmmaking, since this is my favourite type of filmmaking to watch and create. I believe that my passion for these projects can help to lead to a hopefully promising career.
