Brandon Batten Cinematography

Brandon Batten has over 25 year’s experience working in the Film and Television industry.

His love for moving pictures has seen him live and work throughout Europe, North and South America, Asia and the Pacific. Brandon has a wide skill base working on Documentaries, Commercials, Online Content, Television Shows, Netflix and Amazon Prime Series.

Brandon has often wondered why we write these profiles in third person when clearly I am the one writing. So here I am.

I have really enjoyed my career in Film and Television. I love creating and capturing, bold beautiful vision, the collaboration process, working with great people and telling stories through pictures and narrative. I have had the amazing good fortune to travel the world see amazing places and experience so many different cultures. Being based in India for a year filming many sacred rituals has definitely been a highlight. For the last 5 years I have been DOP  on “Going Places with Ernie Dingo” filming over 50 episodes. It has been such an honour toto get to know the heart of Australia and meet and film with so many inspiring First Nations Traditional Owners and Elders.

I get inspiration and thrive finding new and interesting angles and shots. I have a diverse skill base and am very happy collaborating with a larger crew or filming as a one-man band shooting, directing and editing a project.

Your Stories Film Productions has recently relocated to Byron Shire however  we still have an office in Sydney.
