ALBERTO BALAZS FILMMAKER, CINEMATOGRAPHER.

 

My name is Alberto Balazs, I was born in Buenos Aires, where I started studying music. My career in Cinematography started after graduating from the Barcelona Film School ESCAC with an MA in Cinematography.  

Im currently based in London, working between Europe and Latin America.

I am interested in human stories, and social and enviromental issues, and the language of cinema. My work is characterised for a natural and narrative approach to lighting and I try to work in the boundaries between documentary and fiction. I operate the camera and like to get as close to the project as from early stages of the script.

I was selected in 2012 as a young UK Cinematographer for the Berlinale Talent Campus with  the short film The Inner Valley shot in 16mm in Argentina andselected at BAFICI and IFFR, among others.

Joined to my work as cinematographer, I also work with Lighting as Gaffer, and you will also see some music and photography as part of my work.

We are currently in the preproduction of our First Feature Film "PIEDRA SOLA", directed by Alejandro T Tarraf in the Summer 2017 in Argentina, with the Support of the  National Institute of Cinema in Argentina INCAA.

I always look for new projects and collaborations, so dont hesitate to contact me to share your script, stories
and challenging ideas.
