       Director of Photography PETER BONILLA has over two decades of film and digital production experience in Los Angeles, New York and around the globe. He first established his love for photography as a youth, developing and printing  his still images with a home darkroom setup. During his late teens, he built a professional darkroom and assembled an anamorphic still portfolio for Jon Hall’s Fantascope Corporation, a Los Angeles based company which manufactured anamorphic lenses for the stills, Super 8 and 16mm markets. After graduating Cum Laude from UCLA Film School, Peter relocated to Montreal where he worked for the National Film Board of Canada. He subsequently freelanced as an assistant cameraman in both Canada and New York where he worked with and trained under such greats as Arthur Ornitz, Ed Lachman, Greg Andracke and Jeri Sopanen among others.
