Athan Merrick Cinematographer Demo Reel

Director of Photography Demo Reel. Includes all aspects of my work. Commercial, music video, narrative, art film, documentary, action sports, wildlife, and more. I strongly believe that every type of job informs every other type. My action sports background is beneficial to my commercial work. My documentary work is beneficial to narrative filming. I am proud of the diversity of work I have shot and believe it makes me a stronger cinematographer no matter the genre.

Winner of the 2018 CSC (Canadian Society of Cinematographers) Experimental/Unique Award for the art installation Uninterrupted.
Winner of Best Short Documentary (50 mins) Cinematography 2018 Leo Awards (BC Films Awards) for Numinous.

Based in Vancouver, BC with Canadian permanent residency and US citizenship so I can work on both sides of the border.
