ABOUT

Elias's craft is to create a visual language in both film and photography, that not only tells a story, but connects to the viewer on a deeper, subliminal level.

A graduate from Lebanon Al Kafaat University and holds a bachelor degree in cinematography - his work ranges from film and digital narrative feature films, to television and documentaries. He has extensive experience in all departments on set, working his way through the industry as a lighting spark, Grip assistant, VTO, 2nd AC, 1st AC, DIT and Camera operator before becoming a director of photography. This experience equips him with invaluable in-depth knowledge of all aspects of filmmaking.

Elias worked as a 1st AC on "FAST AND FURIOUS 7", as a 2nd unit DOP on "SONIC THE HEDGEHOG" film and most recently as a main cinematographer on "THE WIDOW'S MOON" in Germany.

He has travelled the world extensively from EUROPE to ASIA and Africa. This worldwide experience has given him the ability to work across all cultures with multi-national, multi-faceted teams, broadening and deepening his understanding and perspective on Production. Speaking French, Arabic and English Elias is adept with his skills, and integrates with confidence in all environments.
