Back on May 9th of 2015, Revolution Cinema Rentals hosted the Hurlbut Visuals Speaker Series with Michael Cioni and Sherri Kauk. Michael’s presentation was broken up into ten parts and released over the course of a few weeks and we felt that this style would be good for presenting Sherri’s presentation as well.
Sherri is an accomplished Director of Photography, Camera Operator and Gaffer. We are incredibly thrilled to showcase Sherri’s work as a talented female Director of Photography as a part of Hurlbut Visuals’ commitment to supporting Women in Film. In 2013, Sherri won at the Madrid International and Tenerife Festivals for Painstaking (2013) and was awarded a finalist at Carmel for Greed (2012). Her work can be found on her website here: http://www.sherrikauk.com
Sherri first came to me as an intern years ago and her commitment was like no other. She came on two of my features, Something New and Into the Blue, as an electrician, and she has since operated for me on various projects.
Sherri has spent a lot of time on set moving her way through the camera department working on feature length films (both narrative and documentary) as well as television projects. Sherri’s presentation covers her work and style as a Director of Photography and Camera Operator, diving into the finer details of her approach to capturing the story with the camera and her lighting choices.
