Capturing the Director's Vision With Eight Grade’s Cinematographer, Andrew Wehde
Play • 21 min

The best cinematography is the one that most faithfully reflects what the director seeks to convey. Andrew Wehde is a cinematographer, known for his work on Bo Burnham's Movie, Eighth Grade, and for the Netflix series, Grand Army. He entered the Digital Cinema Program in DePaul University, one of the most important digital schools. In that place, he began to have access to all the equipment and took advantage of them to work with models and made short films. That's where he developed his expertise in naturalistic lighting, his understanding of lenses, and photography. All that work from a very young age made him realize that he wanted to work more with a group of people than alone, and he focused on making cinematography. He is currently working on an Amazon original series called Lightyears and was part of Queenpins, an action drama film with Vince Vaughn and Kristen Bell.
