Hand Cut Films - portfolio of Eliot Zee Piltz
Film.Tv.Video - I have just completed a two-year stint at Paperny Entertainment, where I worked on five television shows (a total of 45 episodes) as a Colourist and Online Editor. I have been editing since 1999, and colour-grading/finishing since 2006, working with many of Vancouver's leading production companies. Technical proficiency aside, I am first and foremost a storytelling artist, with a critical and matured eye, who has done it all, from features to shorts to music videos, documentary to comedy to drama. Some might say I'm versatile with my abilities.
Photography.Imaging - I collaborate with people and our environment to cultivate magical moments. At times I experiment with timed exposures to enhance lighting and movement. Other times I focus on suspending stillness and the sublime. Regardless of my various techniques, I consider myself a purist. The intent is for my shots to jump off the page, to say something indomitable, to capture the true essence of my subjects. The world around me is too beautiful for words. That is why I take photos.
One day I will find the time to present a central repository of my works. I’m currently standing in the middle of the cereal aisle of technology, awestruck by infinite choice and artificial ingredients.
