Kevin Kirchman

Director of Photography/Documentarian #2

Kevin acted as the Director of Photography and Colorist for “An Intervention”. He cut his teeth early in the DSLR revolution, scouring web forums in search for the “cinematic” look, but ultimately finding his own voice through his own style of cinematography with EEK! on Film.

Often shooting guerilla-style and fast paced, he uses practical lighting and in-camera techniques to make the visuals look as natural as possible. Some of his favorite shots of his can be found in his previous films and content, such “Moment” and “WhoKilledHeather”.
