Laszlo Thomas Nador

Capturing American scripts, memories and moments is what Laszlo does best. Coverage and direction of the picture is his specialty. He provides wisdom, vision, and style to ideas that have movement, surrounded by creative and technical professionals who magically make it so. His world is hypothetical, until it's real. It has many moving T-stops, filled with exposures. He studies specs and work in frames. High speed, skinny shutter and shallow depth of field is how he rolls. He operates motion picture cameras and shoots with dollies, cranes, jibs, sliders, and drones. Color is his friend. Flat lighting is his foe. He goes above and beyond to make it a film, a spot, a moment, a memory.
