Liam Cockcroft

Born in 1997, Liam is a filmmaker, photographer and artist. He specialises in cinematography, editing and does some colour grading, VFX and motion graphics. He is currently completing his final year at film school where he achieved "Best Cinematographer" for 3 consecutive years.

I have always enjoyed telling stories through images. My favourite pastime is analogue film photography, which has taught me so much about image-making and the basics of exposure, composition and colour control.

 

At City Varsity, I took part in a highly practical course in cinematography and editing. My time there has given me many opportunities in operating cinema cameras like the ARRI Alexa XT and lighting with professional equipment. I have also been lucky enough to use that gear to shoot amazing projects such as Cream Machine’s music video, “Raak Taatie” that was funded and distributed by Sony Music.
