Antoine Combelles is a French cinematographer and director currently based in Los Angeles. After working as a photographer and VFX artist for several years, he went back to school and graduated as a Film & TV major at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. He has photographed award winning web series, music videos and numerous short films. His goal is to use his European background and American experience to bring a unique sensitivity to filmmaking.
In 2015, Antoine won the ARRI Volker Bahnemann Award for Cinematography.
In 2016, he has completed his last short film 'And Then We Broke', starring Sydney Haslam & Jake Satterfield. The film, depicting two passionate lovers testing their relationship, is an intimate passion project that he decided to entirely shape with the skills he acquired over the years, acting as the writer, producer, director, cinematographer, editor, sound mixer and composer.
He is currently developing his next project: a segmented piece shot in Paris, New York and Florence with the actress Brigette Lundy Paine.
His past work includes concert photography with the cultural activists 'Le Collectif Iso', 'LillelaNuit' and the 'Washington Square News' New York's newspaper.
