Rytis Kurkulis – cinematographer

I have started my career as freelance cinematographer, after receiving  degree in cinematography at Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre in 1998 and Escola Superior de Audiovisuals de Catalunia in 2004. Since then I was improving my skills as director of photography in a broad spectrum of audiovisual production.  I have shot more than 100 TV commercials and music videos, tested a wide range of professional equipment, have mastered different mediums: took off with film and landed to digital.  Over the past few years I am dedicating myself more to  film production and participate in local and international feature films and documentary projects as DOP, 2nd unit DOP or camera operator.

I speek lithuanian, spanish, english, russian.

Member of Lithuanian Association of Cinematographers.
