My name is Rene Batista, and for the most part of my career I’ve been working as a professional editor and cinematographer. Even though my work includes extensive list of editing jobs on various commercial projects, I still tend to find the greatest joy and inspiration engaging in my own personal projects which have always awarded me with the opportunity of working alongside amazing people and fascinating sceneries.
I believe in technical simplicity and am always trying to let my cinematography be driven by story and emotions. Don’t get me wrong, I am by all means a tech geek owning the very latest pieces of equipment, but will always look on a technology simply as a tool and a companion on my filmmaking journey.
I adore music, I can’t imagine the world without a melody in it, and it is at the very core of everything I do. I am very grateful for all the talented musicians inspiring me to capture in imagery the emotion they are giving me through their music.
