About Me

Hello, I have been working as a cinematgrapher for over 10 years and a member of the International Cinematographer's Guild (Local 600). This past year I shot a feature film called, Take a Chance that stars the legendary Sonny Chiba. Also, I shot a 1 hour science fiction series pilot called, The Alpha System. My most recent documentary, Behind the Orange Curtain, won the "Filmmakers Award" at the 2012 Newport Beach Film Festival and "Best Feature Documentary" at the 2012 Metropolitan Film Festival of NYC. I have shot numerous comedy pilots as well. In addition to films, I having been shooting commercials for clients such as Adidas, Audi, and Toyota. I began as a Gaffer and Best-boy Electrician and have a comprehensive background in dramatic lighting on multiple medium budget features and high budget TV series. I am easy to work with and love to collaborate on set. I can work quick and am a creative problem solver. Please review my website for reel, bio and samples at www.derekbauer.com. I can provide equipment and excellent crew.

I have been in the industry since 2000.
