Singled out for her expressive and stylized work, Cybel Martin is the first and only African American woman to receive an MFA in Cinematography from NYU. Perhaps because she was named after 1962 Oscar winning film, "Sundays and Cybele", this native New Yorker has set her sights on her own golden statue.
Her Cinematography credits include "Orange Bow" (Tribeca Film Festival), "Sangam" (Sundance), "Flora's Garment Bursting into Bloom" (winner: Showtime No Limits Award), "The Gilded Six Bits (winner: Hollywood Black Film Festival, Smithsonian) and additional photography for "On the Outs" (winner: Slamdance, IFP Spirit). Currently, she is completing the Bollywood feature "Arranged Love" and Tracey Moore's "Peep Hole".
Cybel has also contributed to numerous documentaries, most notably "Inside the Black Panthers" for the National Geographic, "11 Days" produced by Mark Burnett ("Survivor", "The Apprentice") and the Tribeca Film Festival winner, "Dressed Like Kings".
Her commercial work includes jobs for Hewlett-Packard, Sony Music and PBS.
Inspired to share her knowledge and career experiences, Cybel has participated in several film panels and lecture series. Her favorites include guest lecturer at the Psychiatry Department at Columbia University, Cinematography instructor for the African Film Academy in Nigeria, guest teacher for The Ghetto Film School and panelist at the Arizona Black Film Fest.
