Athan Merrick Cinematographer Demo Reel 2016

Demo Reel for 2016 consisting of projects from 2015 and before. Includes all aspects of my work. Commercial, music video, narrative, documentary, action sports, wildlife, and more. Some believe in having a few different reels that focus on each specific genre of work. I strongly believe that every type of job informs every other type. My action sports background is beneficial to my commercial work. My narrative work is beneficial to wildlife filming. I am proud of the diversity of work I have shot and believe it makes me a stronger cinematographer no matter the genre.

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

Lost Wilderness – Feature Film

Director of Photography on Lost Wilderness, a narrative feature film. This film was extremely challenging to shoot. Minimal gear and crew, with producer selected hacked GH2 camera packages (very low dynamic range), in dense forest, in the middle of sunny summer. Basically a camera stress test nightmare for the selected package that unfortunately could not be changed due to budgetary reasons. Directed by Garnet Campbell and Wes Sargent.
