MAZDA DRIFTER AD :: Jonathan Parkinson (Fresh Eye) / Lars Cox
Looking up to his cinematographer dad, Lars caught the film bug early. As a small boy, he was captivated by the delicate alchemy of light and lens. He also knew from a young age that a career in a cubicle would elude him.
So he spent 15 years learning the ropes the hard way. Instead of film school, he was schooled on set, meaning there isn’t much he hasn’t seen a way around.
Coming from a family of film fanatics, Lars possesses an enviable fluency in all formats, so nothing gets in the way of his ability to tell a story. Whether it is a 90-minute narrative or a 30-second sales pitch, he brings a unique perspective to everything he shoots.
This is probably the reason his impressive list of operating credentials includes Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chappie and Black Sails and is still growing. Much like he did. At 6ft4, he’s grown to be not only one of the tallest DOPs, but also one of the most sought-after.
