Pieter Stathis, CSC
Pieter has been crafting award-winning films for 25 years, shooting features, television series, documentaries and commercials across North America, Europe, Asia and the South Pacific.
He immigrated to Canada from Greece, gaining a degree in Literature and Fine Arts. His favourite film projects are international documentaries that both entertain and galvanize positive change. Pieter’s love of cinematography comes from discovering the character of real locations with naturalistic lighting, bold camerawork, and thoughtful collaboration with directors. Deeply grounded in traditional 35mm film, Pieter’s insight with modern digital-film cameras, technology, and post workflow has carved him a creative niche, reflected by cinematography awards for TV series Secret Files of the Inquisition and feature films Hit-n-Strum and 3 Days in Havana. Pieter’s recent collaborations include working with Director X shooting Centre Stage En Pointe for Sony Pictures and working with director Xiaolu Xue on the Chinese cross-cultural hits Finding Mr. Right and Book of Love.
