Vanessa Vandy is a director and DOP who grew up in New Zealand and Finland. Vanessa’s style lies in her ability to move people, to capture their attention and to evoke an emotion.
Vanessa spent her late teen years competing as an elite athlete representing Finland in pole vault. However, she had always had the need to be creative and thus composed her own music projects in-between her studies and athletics. This hobby eventually introduced her to the world of filmmaking after being asked to compose music for several short films. Since then she ended up learning all of the main post production skills one by one. Her love for cinematography was initiated in 2015 after being asked to film a few startup videos. Today her main focus is DOP:ing and directing. Her short film Farewell marked her narrative directorial debut and it got selected as a finalist in the One Screen Film Festival 2017 and officially selected into Bermuda International Film Festival.
