Gloria Kurnik

Shooting Director/ Cinematographer

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Experienced
  • Freelancer: Available

An award-winning filmmaker, visual storyteller and self-shooting director based in London and available to travel for a shoot worldwide. My primary expertise is in shooting and directing short content, mainly as a one woman team executing projects from conceptualisation until the final cut.

I'm especially familiar with Asia as I used to live there for the past 6 years and previously shot under burning Rajasthani sun, in the midst of vicious volcanic fumes and in close to 100% humidity of a Bornean jungle. I have filmed in India, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Taiwan, Philippines... in a couple of countries in Europe and in USA.
