Warren B. Malone was born in 1970 near London. He picked up his first video camera at school in the 80s and after reading Philosophy at LSE he started making films and learned some craft at Birkbeck, Panico, City Lit and the NFTS. His first narrative short as sole director was shortlisted for an Arri Best Newcomer award and “Forgiving your PE Teacher”, his next short, won at Encounters International Film Festival. Across the River is his first feature as Director.
Warren is a good cameraman. If there's enough budget he'll usually choose to work with a super-talented DOP and stick to directing but if not he's happy to light or work with available light, operate and record sound in self-shooter situations.
He's got some of his own kit for lower budget work: a BMPCC, a Canon 7D and a set of old but fast Nikon primes as well as lots of lighting gear including a 4x4ft Kinoflo, 2 4x2ft Kinoflos, 2 1K and 2 300w Arri Tungsten Fresnels, some small LED lights plus tripods, stands, reflectors and other bits of grip and gaffer gear.
