ABOUT

Anthony C. Kuhnz

Since earning a BA in film at Northwestern and an MFA in cinematography from the University of Southern California, Anthony has shot over 100 short films, music videos and industrials as well as several feature films.
He enjoys challenging himself to continually experiment and evolve, using cinematography to effectively enhance story, theme and character in the magical way only it can.
Anthony is also a prolific musician and motion graphics artist. When not creating amazing visuals, Anthony enjoys traveling the world with his wife Shilpi (and his camera).

Professional cinema image-taking should integrate, serve, interest, and enhance the story.” Haskell Wexler
