Aitor Mendilibar is always looking to weave elaborate visual textures into a defined color palette. His eye allows him to capture the stories and project them into reality through his lens. He believes in the use of thoughtful lighting choices and carefully curated camera movements to aid in the story being told. Whether he is working in narrative, documentary, or dance he mines the moments within each story to be enhanced by his visuals.
As a native of Basque country and now a New York City based cinematographer he has collaborated with a variety of different artists in various fields including Reggie Wilson, Raja Feather Kelly, and Jonah Bokaer. And most recently, was proud to be the co-Director of Photography for Prom King 2010, winner of the New Vision award at Cinequest 2017.
