Stephen McKissen – Cinematographer | Visual Production Operations

Steve is a fellow instructor with executive producer Tony Pfau at the Colorado Film School.  He immediately saw the great opportunity and offered to get on board to help get the pilot shot.

Stephen McKissen was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, a super 8mm film junkie from the start. He attended the Colorado Film School in 2000 where he focused on Writing and Directing.

He cut his teeth working at production houses in Denver, such as Citizen Pictures, The Colorado Production Group, and Denver’s premier Lighting and Grip house “Lighting Services.” Stephen worked under famed cinematographers Ric Waite, (Footloose, 48hrs) as a gaffer and with Scott Ransom (Switchback, One Crazy Summer) as a Camera Operator, just to name a few.

He has worked on hundreds of short films, music videos and feature films as director of photography.   When it comes to teaching, Stephen encourages hands-on learning, story-driven interpretation of screenplays and constructive collaboration with producers and directors.

Steve will likely be filming parts of various sequences and also help in the coordinating and training for apprentices.  You can see his work here!
