Award-winning cinematographer (and NYFA instructor) Suki Medencevic is currently shooting a highly-anticipated snowboarding film for Disney. Though details are quite hush-hush, we know there is some big-name talent attached to the project. Suki is teaming up with director Paul Hoen and shooting on location in Utah.
Originally from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Suki Medencevic has shot numerous features, documentaries, and commercials around the world, working with talent including Tom Hanks, Billy Crystal, Lauren Bacall, and Janet Leigh. He began teaching courses in cinematography at New York Film Academy’s Los Angeles campus last year. As he says, “Being a teacher means that you have to be well informed about the latest in the camera art and technology. The most exciting thing about teaching is to be able to share my own knowledge with the students and make them understand the power of the visual storytelling.”
After wrapping the film for Disney, Suki has two features in development that are scheduled to shoot later this year, with veteran actor Ed Begley Jr. attached.
