    Greg Blakey

    Greg Blakey is an Australian born Film Maker and Cinematographer;

    Greg finished his studies of communication design in 2004 and since then he has worked professionally as a Creative Director, Cinematographer and Film Maker across dozens of projects, spanning from feature films, global campaigns and solo art exhibitions. Since moving to Berlin in 2014 he has become a desirable Cinematographer and Director and has worked with some of Germanys top Artists and production companies.

    Greg’s multi disciplined back ground has generously informed his unique approach to film making and fuelled his desire to create socially relevant films, while still maintaining a deep understanding of the industry and the production process. This holistic and contemporary approach has allowed him greater freedom for multidisciplinary collaboration and a stronger understanding of the entirety of the processes involved in production.

    This attitude was best reflected in his debut feature film Wedgetail; In a story that portrays an isolated man searching for love in Cambodia. Wedgetail spanned 5 nations and was brought to life by Jan Philipp Jarke after they met at a film festival in NYC. The project not only resulted in a strong film but also enabled Greg to form his own style and voice in the film industry

    Now, Greg is currently applying this thinking into new projects that range from documentaries to new fictional and semi fictional narrative works.
