MICHAEL ELLIS

DIRECTOR / DOP
COMMERCIAL, CORPORATE, DOCUMENTARY, FASHION, SPORT

Michael is a seasoned motorcycle rider with more than 20 years of riding experience.
He has pushed and broken himself numerous times trying to improve his skill level.

This mindset is evident in his chosen craft of filmmaking and photography.
Resourcefulness combined with a creative mind which is always scheming and
developing interesting ways to shoot, stands him in good stead
He has filmed, solo and in small production teams, in 6 African countries and
understands what it takes to get the job done under difficult circumstances.

Whether shooting in the clinically sterile theatre of a heart surgeon or hanging off the
back of a motorcycle at ridiculous speeds to get that one extra shot, he lives his passion everyday.
