Work samples from Winter's wide variety of projects
Want a quick perusal of highlights from Winter Kane's camera work?
Well, here ya go, pal!
Some of these projects I was hired for, some I wrote myself, all show a little part of me - personality, creativity, quality.
Camera Operator | PressureDrop.tv | Summer 2018
Live stream five days of indie music in Europe.
Had the pleasure of working with PressureDrop.tv, a San Francisco based streaming service, a second time to film the Sirkus stage at øyafestivalen in Norway..
Chelsea Wolfe is one of my all-time favorites, so this was a dream! For this video, I was filming stage right. I floated around for the other øya shows on the playlist. Operating Sony a7sii wireless, two camera ops, one switcher.
brooklyn vegan sxsw
Live stream three days of indie music in Austin.
Camera Operator | PressureDrop.tv | Spring 2018
PressureDrop.tv, a San Francisco based streaming service, filmed the Brooklyn Vegan Lost Weekend 2 event at SXSW 2018 and I got to be a part of it.
This video here I streamed solo, other videos in the playlist (pdtv.live/sxsw) I was floating cam. Operating Sony a7sii wireless, two camera ops, one switcher. This is definitely my favorite type of gig!
Three friends throw a party to find out if they're pregnant.
Cinematographer | Greenless Studios - Lex Lybrand | Spring 2018
When Ash, Wendy, and Shannon each find out they might be pregnant, they're not exactly thrilled. As their collective anxiety grows, they confront the potential fathers, play stupid party games, and egg a car or two. All part of the world's first Maybe Shower.
Was happily brought on as Cinematographer for this cute coming-of-age indie film. Filmed on location at the famous Spiderhouse in Austin with some amazing talent.
Winner of Best Feature Film at the Portland Comedy Film Festival.
eyes upon waking
Life goes on. Whether you want it to or not.
Director | Open Eyes Productions - Jennifer Scott | Fall 2017
Based off the real life story of producer and lead actress Jennifer Scott, Taryn is angrily disappointed when she wakes up in the ER after a failed suicide attempt. As part of Arizona law, she's kept under a three day mandatory suicide watch in a facility that shares rooms with the elderly where she meets Mrs Kelly, a woman suffering from Alzheimer's that shows Taryn the value of a life well lived.
I had the honor of content directing this feature film. Everything in this video is my direction except for the beer bottle suicide attempt and the ER footage just after.

Gender-swapped teenaged Bernie Sanders &
Donald Trump run for high school president.
With the absurdity of the 2016 Presidential Election constantly in my news feed, I couldn't help but be inspired by an informational video I saw about Trump one night while trying so desperately to find inspiration for my newest film.
This was created for the 2016 Phoenix Comic Con Film Challenge, and I was assigned the prop of boomerang and the line of dialogue "is this for real?"
make way for books
Promotional documentary about the Tucson non-profit.
Cinematographer | Crown Chimp ProdCo - Frank Armendarez | Spring 2016
Make Way for Books is reaching out to southern Arizona families in the most creative and innovative ways possible; traveling out into the community to provide early literacy programming that meets families where they are!
I was very excited to be able to work with a non-profit that does something I care about: bringing education and books to communities that are predominantly illiterate.

A girl's obsession has fatal consequences.
Between the trees
Created for the Phoenix Comicon Film Challenge where it premiered in the Top 10, placed in the Top 5 & won Best Use of Music.
The challenge included using one of four assigned songs (I chose Romeo and Juliet, Montagues and Capulets by Sergei Prokofiev), and having an obscure Star Wars reference.
This is probably my favorite project, to date.
Cinematographer | Carter Ink Films - Chris Carter | Summer 2015
The fallout after an infection takes over civilization.
The longest, most challenging project I've worked on to date. Days were packed full of pages, demanding quick thinking and fast camera work. I shot mostly handheld, quickly developing a steady hand and smooth flowing movement.
Probably my favorite thing to have filmed on this movie was the fight scenes!
