Maggie Olkuska, DFF
Director of Photography
I came into the film industry with a desire to bring and visually capture inspiring, memorable, beautiful stories and ideas into life. I was born in 1991 in Krakow, Poland and I am based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
In 2012 I studied Film & TV production at Technical College in Denmark. I attended the Polish National Film, Television & Theatre School in Łódź, Poland for Direction of Photography between 2015-2016.
What I offer & create
When I work with creating a visual style for a film, I start by listening, dedicating myself to the story we shape. I observe.
I am here to tell your (Director's) story in the most aligned way, while actively bringing my ideas and visually and technically exploring, building and contributing to the entire project.
Embracing the dialogue of emotions plays a huge role in my work. I am passionate about diving deeply into Light, colours, Nature, Earth elements and human emotions, all that I feel, surrounding us around the entire world.
Another priority of mine is to provide a space for actors on set by creating an environment where they can act, perform and improvise freely.
I enjoy working with hand held camera movements, while using my own/cam operator's body language to bring audience closer to the characters.
I am committed to working on projects which are pro-life, which can inspire us to think, to feel, to sense more, to laugh more and to embrace beauty all around us, to embrace all that we are.
