Zik Udenze

Director of Photography

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

My name is Zik. I am a cinematographer working to establish myself in the role after transitioning from the lighting department for the last 8 years.

As a cinematographer what creatively inspires me the most is the analytic aspect of cinematography where I am able to break down a script or treatment and work with a director to pair it's ideas, moments and mood with a bespoke visual accent.

My ethos is to ensure each of my projects has a very clear and original visual voice- a rich embodiment of the director's vision, with every creative choice within the photography grounded in a particular poetic intention.

I'm interested in collaborating with similarly-minded emerging directors, who draw upon the same cinematic and artistic influences, and who are also striving to make work that feels stark, bold and textured.



ScreenSkills tests passed.
