"Cinematography is a writing with images in movement and with sound"
- Robert Bresson, Notes on Cinematography
David Gordon is an LA-based cinematographer specializing in scripted narrative feature films and new media content, including shorts, music videos, and episodic narrative projects. Although he has a particular soft spot for horror cinema, his work spans all genres: from historical period dramas to fantasy Westerns.
David's cinematography has brought him all around the world. His travels led him to Dzibikak, Mexico to shoot La Petite Mort, a post-apocalyptic romantic thriller. His notable work includes Penumbra, a fantasy horror Western shot on Super 16mm film. Other films in his portfolio include Wanton Want, a drama starring Nicholas Brendan, The Other Foot, an antebellum period film, and Better Days, a slice of life web series that premiered at Tribeca NOW.
An avid PADI-certified scuba diver, David relishes every opportunity to jump in the water and shoot, allowing him to pull double duty as both the cinematographer and underwater operator for Below, action / horror film about a shark attack.
In his spare time, you can find David exploring abandoned buildings, scuba diving, or hosting nocturnal picnics at graveyards.
