Rob ScheerenCamera Operator
Rob’s love for capturing images started more than 40 years ago when he was just five years old. His parents gave him an old Kodak box brownie camera, which he still has, and he shot countless rolls of 620 film with it.
When he was a little older he managed to build a black and white darkroom under his house, so that he could keep shooting and developing; always capturing and creating images. That passion has never left him; through his education, his first job at a Pro Lab in Sydney,his first television job at Channel Ten and his time covering events like the Sydney Olympics, the Bali Bombings, Port Arthur & Thredbo tragedies. Rob has also covered stories in South Africa, the South Pacific, New Guinea, Indonesia and even Antarctica for the Sydney Bureau of Television New Zealand.
In 2003 He began a freelance career so that he could continue to pursue and push his creative development as a lighting cameraman and editor; shooting on XDCAM HD formats, the Canon 5D Mark III and Sony FS700R and editing in Avid and Adobe Premiere.
Dominic FlanaganDirector of PhotographyDominic has an abundance of both technical skills and communication skills that he has developed over the 25 years experience he has working in many countries and with many styles of filming and many different producers and directors.Dominic’s love of his art has developed over the years. It began with passion ‘getting the shot’ back in the tv news days. This progressed with the passion for ‘storytelling using images’ when he was working on documentaries in Europe.
As Dominic’s career progressed lighting became a passion and creating mood and feeling became another way of storytelling and communication using this medium. In more recent years Dominic has been complimented more and more about his manner, especially by corporate clients who are very grateful the way Dom makes them feel relaxed and at ease while being the subject of the latest video.This is a clear stand out in Dominic’s repertoire as a DoP. He understands that in order to achieve what the filming requires it is essential to put the subject at ease and feel the trust and freedom to open up and communicate fully.This is similar to a photographer who spends time with his subjects. It is the trust that the DoP is ‘looking after’ them, that he will not allow them to look or sound bad on camera and will ‘normalise’ what is (let’s face it) not a normal situation for most people.To highlight some of Dominic’s attributes, what sets Dominic apart from many of his peers are the following…1. His appreciation of The Story. To make the filming, lighting, communications, in fact the entire experience with the story in mind, the goal as well as the journey.2. Capturing the mood in the message. This mood is just as, if not more, important as the words spoken, music played, actions acted.3. Dominic is Empathetic and Communicative with all concerned. The talent, the producers and directors, other crew and even the cleaners. It is vitally important to Dom that everyone involved has a positive experience.4. Dominic is patient. He enjoys the journey of the storytelling and wants others to enjoy it as well.
