Kak Lee

Director of Photography

I was born in the mountains of Laos, where there was no electricity. My interest in filmmaking started when I was 12. I began as a camera operator for a local cable access television station in Merced, CA. Although I have worked almost every position since, from videographer to editor to producer. My passion has always been in Cinematography.

I spent my years in college studying film, earning a BA in Film Studies from Minnesota State University Moorhead and MFA in Cinematography from Chapman University. My diverse experiences includes TV shows, features, shorts, commercials, documentaries, music videos and web series.
