Kai Krause. Education. Motivation.
Idyllwild Arts Academy (Film Diploma)
Living in Idyllwild taught me how to be an artist.
Metropolitan Film School (BA Hons. in Cinematography)
Living in London taught me how to light a scene.
American Film Institute Conservatory (MFA in Cinematography)
Living in Los Angeles taught me how to be a cinematographer.
I spent my childhood traveling to wherever my father was filming.
I had the fortune to walk on every continent by age twelve
and had seen over forty countries before I turned sixteen.
Experiencing different cultures is my creative driving force.
I've always been inspired by the works of great cinematographers.
Whether they are personal mentors like Seamus McGarvey, ASC, BSC
or idols like Emmanuel Lubezki, ASC, AMC,
nothing influences my work more than watching great cinema.
