Education

About me

My name is Kevin Martin and I am a freelance director of photography, gaffer, grip/electric, and camera op in the PA/NY/NJ region. I recently graduated from Drexel University in Philadelphia with a bachelor of science in Film & Video with a concentration in cinematography. I've worked on over 70 productions at Drexel, student and professional, in a wide variety of departments and positions and photographed 11 thesis films in the past two years. While in school, I also earned a 16mm film grant from Kodak, NFL Films, and Modern Video, worked as an electric intern on the James L. Brooks film HOW DO YOU KNOW, and won an award for outstanding achievement in cinematography from the Film & Video department.

Since graduation I've worked on the Henry Miller horror feature OCCUPANT as a swing, a gaffer on Joe Raffa's debut feature film YOU'LL KNOW MY NAME, and as a director of photography on three independent features: Jesse James Jackson's coming-of-age drama set in Camden and Osaka, THE HOUSE OF MALIK (starring Clifton Powell and Sean Taylor), Bill Birrell's psychological thriller CRIMSON TEAR (starring Isabelle McNally, Theodora Greece, Lydia Hearst, and Luke Bracey) and Harvey Benschoter's dark comedy about the downward spiral of a factory worker, CARL (starring Loren Boyer).
