 Biting the hand that feeds us since 2002.

RASMUS HEISE HAS A VISION.

Vision have signed award-winning DoP Rasmus Heise to their roster for UK representation.

Starting out as a gaffer in the Danish film industry, Heise took the four year cinematography class at The National Film School of Denmark to kick-start his career in cinematography.


Tell me more - where will I have seen his work? Having shot Emmy-winning and BAFTA-nominated TV shows in his native land, Heise won an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film in 2014 for 'Helium'.

Directed by Anders Walter, the film revolves around a dying child who is told stories of a fantasy afterlife by an eccentric hospital janitor. The trailer offers a glimpse of this strange and wonderful world which Heise's cinematography helps vividly realise.




'Scuse me, I think there's something in my eye... On a lighter note, avid readers of DAVID - as we're sure you all are - will recognise the excellent Weetabix ad we featured in our March 10th newsletter.

Created by BBH and directed by Tore Frandsen, Heise gives it a cinematic feel. From the diffuse light pouring in through the windows to the crisp, Vermeer-like glint of the giant's crockery, every aspect is considered; radiating sumptuousness and immersing us in the fairy tale onscreen.



He's pretty versatile, then. Has he worked in any other mediums? Aside from shorts and commercial work, Heise shot the first season of Amazon Studios' 'Hand of God', about a morally bankrupt judge who has a religious epiphany and becomes a vigilante. Heise used 35mm film to help make it difficult to identify when the story is set, as time and place are not specific in the drama.

He was also the cinematographer on the feature film 'I Kill Giants' (starring Zoe Saldana and Imogen Poots), which is currently in post-production.

Heise is a dab hand at music promos, too - check out this atmospheric video for Vindhal's 'The Question'.




Ambitious was the right word! That's accomplished stuff. We can't wait to see what Heise comes up with next. Vision are certainly excited to work with him - we expect he'll be a great addition to their roster.

Check out Rasmus Heise's reel at Vision to discover more of his work. For more information on him or anyone else on the roster, get in touch with Shade Oshunrinde at shade@visionatwizzo.com or give them a call at 020 7439 4657.
