Duncan Cole


Cinematographer Duncan Cole has trained his lens on big screen hip hop wannabes (Born to Dance), stuntmen (The Devil Dared Me To), rapists (For Good) and strange magicians (The Last Magic Show). The last won Cole an NZ Screen Award. The movie credits sit atop a slate of shorts, commercials and music videos — including one-shot wonder Sophie, for Goodshirt (made with regular collaborator Joe Lonie).

You go round to his house and, if music TV is on, you can hardly talk to him. I'm not cynical about music videos at all. Neither of us are. Director Joe Lonie on Cole's dedication to the music video form, NZ Herald 24 October 2003
