FIRST YEAR – LOS ANGELES
Wenting Deng Fisher is a Los Angeles based Chinese cinematographer and director whose international lifestyle has shaped Wenting with sensitive traveler’s eyes. Using her mind’s eye, she’s always ready to capture precious moments or a unique perspective. Her photography work is seldom staged and captured in the vérité style. She has worked in camera departments in Asia, Europe and the US on shorts, features, commercials and everything in between. She is traditionally trained in both Chinese watercolor and western oil painting, which shapes her composition and lighting in cinematography. Wenting’s MFA thesis film Empty Skies (as director) from Ohio University School of Film was a finalist for the Student Academy Awards and was featured in a write-up by the American Cinematographer magazine. It has shown at the CAMERIMAGE in Poland and won awards worldwide.
