BIOGRAPHY - FRANCESCO ( Franc) BIFFONE
I am an Australian based Internationally recognised Director Of Photography & Co-Producer .
I have shot and collaborated with Production Companies and individuals worldwide and my passion is visible in many of the projects in my portfolio. I am very proud of the Awards I and others have won for many of the projects listed. My passion for production has evolved from being primarily a DOP to include script to screen creative and business roles.
I love what I do.
I get to play with all the latest Film equipment , and HD production toys. As a result, I am proficient on all film and digital camera formats, including the latest release of Kodak and Fuji film stocks and HD cameras including Red , Phantom HD and the vast range of cameras by Sony and Panasonic.
It's a combination of the years I've been in the industry (over 20) and the camaraderie and integrity I create for my crew, that I am proud to say I have a fantastic team that travel with me to most sets and locations. My roles often extend beyond those I claim credit for, with my attitude of getting the job done to the best of my abilities and resources, with a smile. Collaboration and Creative input drive me to achieve the best possible .
I am a founding board member of Creative Nerve Entertainment which is producing Feature Films and associated productions . Links to this are on my website.
I am an active committee member of the ACS (Australian Cinematographers Society) and member of the SOA (Steadicam Operators Association). I am a frequent keynote speaker at film events and proudly mentor many up and coming filmmakers.
When you choose me for your project, you will get an enthusiastic, hard working, creative, resourceful and passionate DOP & Filmmaker.
