Alun Bollinger

Cinematographer

Alun Bollinger, MNZM, has been crafting the slanting southern light onto film and other formats, for almost 40 years. He is arguably New Zealand's premier cinematographer; images framed by Bollinger's camera include some of the most indelible memories to come from iconic films like Goodbye Pork Pie, Vigil and Heavenly Creatures.

I like being minimalist. I suppose it’s because I’ve been brought up in the shoestring school of filmmaking. I quite enjoy for instance putting up one light and making it do two or three different jobs. Alun Bollinger
