Maggie Olkuska, DFF
Director of Photography, Camera Operator
Attended Film & TV production at KTS, Technical College in Denmark in 2012, and I took a training at the Polish National Film, Television & Theatre School in Łódź, Poland for Direction of Photography between 2015-2016
I was born in Krakow, Poland, currently living and working in Copenhagen, Denmark. Recent years allowed me to film in a variety of conditions and cultures, e.g: Denmark, Norway, Poland, Germany, Malta, Nepal, Cuba, Tanzania, Philippines and Colombia. Some of the films I worked were selected at IDFA, CPH:DOX, Berlinale, SXSW, CPH:PIX, Manchester Film Festival, Dok.Fest München, Sydney Film Festival, TIFF...
As a cinematographer, I am passionate about diving deeply into colours, nature, earth elements and human emotions. I find feelings a huge part of an universal language, which speaks to all of us around the world therefore I admire embracing the dialogue of emotions on the screen through light, composition and the camera movement.
I am committed to working on projects which are pro-humanity & pro-life, which can inspire us to think, to feel, to sense, to laugh, to take life more easily and to embrace all that we are. I am committed to working with projects on fair basis, movies with a holistic approach towards the whole filmmaking process.
