photographer. in love with sets. curious.
Brazilian from Brasília, Elisa has always loved creating images, especially through photography, but never thought of making that into a job until starting the Communications course at Universidade de Brasília, when she made her first short film. At that moment, she fell in love and started working and studying even harder.
Since 2014, she has been working as a cinematographer on short and medium length films, such as Psiquê, O Pequeno Chupa Dedo, O Homem que Não Cabia em Brasília, Berço das Águas and Água Viva, among others. Elisa is also working on camera crews in larger projects, such as feature films - Cano Serrado, which premieres in 2019, O Espaço Infinito, etc - and many short films, including Mistério da Carne, screened at Sundance 2019, and Presos que Menstruam, based on the book by Nana Queiroz.
Elisa has just completed the Audiovisual course at UnB, while also having participated in short courses at Inspiratorium, London Film Academy and New York Film Academy, as well as Ozi Escola de Audiovisual and Espaço Cult. In August 2019, she moved to Los Angeles, to pursue a Master of Fine Arts degree in Cinematography at the prestigious American Film Institute.
