Preparing a lighting setup in Brooklyn for National Geographic’s “Mega Structures” series, NYC Bridges episode, with KPI TV Productions
About Roger Grange, Cinematographer

I am a cinematographer and videographer for documentary films, dramatic films, videos for corporations, non-profit organizations. and commercials.  Over the past twenty years,  I have photographed an incredible variety of subjects all over the world.  I received an Earthwatch Film Award in 1998 for directing and cinematography on “The Quiet Revolution:  Kerala, India”, for PBS.  
Cinematography  should be done with the utmost care, patience, and honesty in order to produce imagery which has emotional and artistic power.   I get a great deal of energy and inspiration from the collaborative atmosphere of a film set.  I sincerely enjoy working with my clients, producers, directors and crew members,  all of which leads to producing work on a very high level.
Equipment and Crew
I provide a one stop solution for crew and equipment in the New York City area.   We carry a customized equipment package which allows us to achieve high quality results quickly and consistently.  I light and film a large number of interviews for documentaries each year, and I am highly skilled at setting up complex lighting with a minimum of fuss.  I am also very experienced working with actors on dramatic productions both on location and on studio sets.
My favorite lighting and grip personnel and sound mixers are world class.

I currently film primarily with DVCAM and DVCPRO HD video tape cameras, but  I am familiar with all video formats and portable cameras in use today.   16mm and 35mm film cameras occasionally show up on my shoots as well.   I own broadcast style DVCAM and Betacam SP cameras with wide and normal zoom lenses.  I also own a Sony HVR-Z1U HDV camera (mini HD), a small camera recording both NTSC and PAL, as well as DV and DVCAM in both TV standards, 16x9 or 4x3.   Its hi def CCD’s produce an image of amazing resolution and beauty in a very small camera.
