Jean Gabriel Leynaud

I don't wish to be a Cinematographer one will recognize from a movie to the next. I wish to be able to make images that belong to each film.

Each story has its one style, its techniques. From the lightest HD to 4K or the heaviest 35mm Cinemascope, I love them all. Playing with them like some can play with words or with music is just what I love doing.

Over the years, I had the chance to work on movies that received more than 35 awards from international festivals, and where screened in movie theaters and on the main broadcasters all around the world (Netflix, National Geographic, Arte, France TV, Arte, Canal+, BBC...detailed in Résumé).

As confortable into the wildest places on earth than in studio doing special effects or Virtual Reality capture, I've had the chance to learn many shooting techniques that I love mixing on the projetcs I join (steadycam, 3D Gimbals, underwater, drone, crane...).

I am fully equipped with one of the best cameras on the market the Sony CineAlta F5 (4K up to 240im/s and 16 bit RAW), a Leica Prime serial, a Fuji cinema zoom, a set of Canon Pro L zooms, and lots of lighting equipment (detailed list in Equipment).
