ivan corona (director of photography)
Before graduating from film school Ivan Corona had already started his career as a feature film cinematographer shooting no-budget feature films including the 2003 indie comedy, The List. Working with a small crew (often not more than just himself), he became adept at using natural and available light to achieve striking results in lightning fast time. With a passion for lighting and a keen ability to capture its beauty quickly, he rapidly excelled in the realm of independent film and commercial production. Ivan has worked consistently as a cinematographer; honing his craft on films with increased budgets and production scales but never straying far from his simple and efficient approach to cinematography stemming from his background in no-budget indie filmmaking. With five feature films and a television series under his belt, he continues to earn his reputation as one of the most efficient cinematographers working in independent films today and has recently expanded his portfolio by re-launching his production banner Singularity Pictures, an independent film and commercial production company based in Hollywood, CA. He is represented by The Mack Agency.
