Earle Dresner is an up-and-coming cinematographer in Australian television, having recently won two Gold Awards at the Australian Cinematographers Society (Victoria and Tasmania) Awards for his work on Sisters and season two of Glitch, which he shot for Netflix and Matchbox Pictures. His other television work includes Little Lunch and Upper Middle Bogan for ABC. Earle recently wrapped on his first narrative feature, 2067, a “cli-fi” dystopian thriller starring Ryan Kwanten and Kodi Smit-McPhee.
Earle discovered his love of cinematography at university but was truly smitten on his first day on a film set. He worked his way up the camera department, working with some of the best directors and cinematographers from Australia and overseas, including John Seale, Andrew Lesnie and Simon Duggan. In 2001, he was offered a full-time job running the camera department of Film Graphics Productions. He spent 3 years there where he got the opportunity to experiment and develop his craft shooting low budget commercials, music videos and short films while continuing to work as an assistant on some of the biggest commercials shot in Australia at that time. Since 2007, Earle has shot hundreds of commercials all around the world for clients including Lexus, Tourism Australia, Visa and Vodafone. Whilst busy with commercials, Earle never lost his love for drama, shooting second unit on two feature films (The Reef; The Legend of Ben Hall), as well as many short films.
