DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY
After dedicating herself to the craft while at Northwestern University, Kira Kelly honed her lighting skills as a gaffer in New York City before moving on to shoot dozens of music videos as a cinematographer. Fittingly, her first feature credit was the musical Were The World Mine (winner of 15 Jury and 11 Audience awards). The Hollywood Reporter said of Kira’s work, “The lush cinematography belies the modest budget.” She has since shot the features Mariachi Gringo and Lip Service, as well as the just released East Los High, a Hulu exclusive series. Kira’s documentary work has taken her around the world. Her most recent commercial clients include Coca-Cola, Colgate, Nike, Cover Girl, and Hewlett-Packard.
