Kenneth Wilson

Kenneth Wilson photo Somewhere between Cub Scouts and ET, Kenneth face-planted into a lifelong fascination with imagery, light, and pixelvision. Inspired by a trustworthy Bell & Howell Super-8 and a large industrial wasteland, Kenneth grew up to secure a degree in cinematography from a small conservatory known as the North Carolina School of the Arts. Kenneth starved himself long enough to jump aboard David Gordon Green’s breakout film, GEORGE WASHINGTON and contribute second unit photography, later nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for cinematography.

Kenneth's work spans multiple genres. His passion for indie dramas has furthered his relationship with David Gordon Green, lending second-unit photography to ALL THE REAL GIRLS and UNDERTOW, affording him the opportunity to work with all-time fav TERRENCE MALICK. Well versed in comedy and action flicks, between THE GUATEMALAN HANDSHAKE (second unit) and the vfx-intensive thriller EYEBORGS, Wilson has come to make every shot count. Lingering, explosive, poetic, realistic. And sometimes strange.

Least we forget the small screen. Wilson's credits include the reality series ROUSCH RACING: DRIVER X for DISCOVERY, THE DRIVE for CMT, WINGS OF MAN and MADHOUSE for THE HISTORY CHANNEL, the PBS documentary BATTLE OF SAILOR’S CREEK, and a really great chance to meet Tammy Faye Baker on her last series, DEATH DEFYING (WE network). Oh yes, and lots of NASCAR, MTV and BET.
