Anthony Arendt


When I was 12, I bought my first camera and instantly fell in love with everything to do with image capture and all the way through high school that Nikkormat was my constant companion. My passion for the visual arts continued to grow in Europe when I attended the Parsons Paris/American College of Design. After living and working throughout Europe for a few years, I returned home to Los Angeles. It was there that I stumbled onto a film set through a friend and instantly knew that production was where I wanted to be. I started as a runner for a small production company, then to Camera Assistant, Camera Operator, to finally Director of Photography. During my career, I have had the great fortune of working with the very best in the industry. I have worked on national and international ad campaigns, an award winning documentary film, blockbuster features, and everything in-between. I have always embraced new technological advances in image capture, lighting, and camera movement as new tools that become my new paintbrushes. It is my passion and my many years of diverse experience that put me in a great place to welcome all cinematic challenges presented.
