Eve M. Cohen: the basics.
I'm a busy girl, living in this freelance world. Based (mostly) in Los Angeles, currently a IATSE Local 600 cinematographer and ready to work both union and non-union projects. I love a solid blend of everything—from independent feature films to television series, documentaries, and virtual reality/360 filmmaking. But what I really love is collaboration and working on projects that blur the line between the real and surreal, bonus if there's a bit of magic. Or underwater, or on the water, or anything involving water.
I entered the world of filmmaking through the study of fine art painting and photography and hold a BFA in photography and an MFA in cinematography, both from UCLA (yes, I've shot on film, no I did not start on DSLRs). You can find my work on just about every digital platform available and many TV channels. Adventures in filmmaking are eagerly welcomed; a recent project took me to three continents, filming traditional documentary footage and 360. I'm currently in-development on a long form docu-narrative virtual reality project (dir. James Kaelan), and recently wrapped on an experimental art film (dir. Jennifer Reeder), and finishing up post on a fiction digital series.
Fun fact: I was the director of photography of the truly independent feature film “Like The Water” (2012 dir. Caroline Von Kuhn) which was the catalyst for creation of crowdfunding and distribution platform Seed&Spark. I'm very proud to be a co-founder at Seed&Spark, where we believe the art of storytelling is about expanding imagination—shining a light on a world inside and deepening empathy for the world outside.
