Based in Asia. Filming the World.
In 1980 Laurie K. Gilbert arrived in Sydney with a Royal Scholarship from the International London Film School and 4 years experience as a B/W cameraman with South Pacific Television in New Zealand, where he was shooting news in the city of Hamilton with an Auricon Pro600.
For the next nine years he operated globally from Sydney with some of the most experienced journalists, producers and sound recordists on many of the most prestigious current affairs programmes anywhere in the world.
The teams shot film documentaries in locations as diverse as Kampuchea, Goa, Pakistan, Missouri, Hokkaido, Bangkok, Los Angeles, Sicily, Buenos Aires, Rio De Janiero, Machu Piccu, Tel Aviv and Honolulu and won multiple film awards for their efforts.
This invaluable experience, especially as it was all shot on Kodak reversal film under the time and professional pressures of fast moving current affairs, has made cinematographer Laurie K. Gilbert extremely creative, fast, accurate, decisive and disciplined in his craft. An intimate knowledge exposing reversal film is probably the best foundation a cinematographer can ever have for shooting the new HD motion picture formats.
