The style of Michael Givens' work is the summation of a life's study of visual arts as a director, cinematographer, photographer, and painter. His understanding of the human as an art form has grown from his distinctive understanding of the language of acting, developed over decades of research and refinement. Givens' style engages all the senses to interpret and tell a story from a simplistic and sophisticated point of view. Director/Cinematographer Michael Givens earned an international reputation for creating memorable stories through compelling images. A graduate of Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California, Givens established his career as a photographer in the fashion and music industries before progressing into film. There he became the cinematographer of choice for such noted directors as Sir Ridley Scott, Stephen Frears, Philip Borsos, Sean McNamara, Ron Maxwell and Peter Smillie. Givens' directorial debut was at Sir Ridley Scott's famed production company - RSA. His credits include over 70 feature films and 1,000 television commercials. His work is clarified and grounded by his years of creative work abroad. His success is largely due to his abilities to elegantly speak across cultures through his sophisticated style.
