John Day

Cinematographer, Director

John Day rolled film on a wide range of screen projects before establishing company Matte-Box Films in 1980. He went on to mix a busy trans-Tasman commercials career with directing gigs on a number of non-fiction titles (The Power of Music, The Hunt for the Pink and White Terraces), plus ghost movie The Returning. Day passed away on 7 January 2015.  

There's something really satisfying about getting the right image for the scene … be it commercials, movies, whatever, the combination of all the crew's work is there in front of you, and all the time you're working out how to shape it, capture it. John Day
