Profile image for Allen Guilford

Allen Guilford

Cinematographer

Allen Guilford was a prolific and much admired cinematographer, whose host of television programmes ranged from 1970s TV landmark The God Boy to colonial melodrama Greenstone. Guilford won NZ Film Awards for his work on movies The Footstep Man, coming of age tale The Climb, and blockbuster What Becomes of the Broken Hearted? He passed away on 10 March 2009. 

...Allen's visual approach was always towards naturalism, but usually a heightened sense of naturalism. He had an acute understanding of where that light should come from, and he loved big lights way back and beyond, shafting through frames and windows. Cinematographer Leon Narbey on Allen Guilford, Onfilm magazine, April 2009, page 11
