JASON OLDAK // DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY

Born on the California coastline and raised on the streets of New York City, Los Angeles based Cinematographer, Jason Oldak, began his career as a fine artist in the New York Art world graduating from the prestigious COOPER UNION holding a BFA in fine art. A continual fascination with cinema later earned him an MFA in Cinematography from the American Film Institute Conservatory.

Having worked professionally as a DP in LA for over a decade, Jason’s most recent television credit includes reimagining and crafting the visual language for the third season of the NBC UNIVERSAL show, GOOD GIRLS.  Additional episodic work includes the NETFLIX produced TRINKETS, season one. ICG MAGAZINE ran an article about Jason’s work and can be found HERE. He previously photographed BLESS THIS MESS for 20th century FOX/ABC as well as the Golden Globe nominated show CASUAL for HULU/LIONSGATE. 

Jason’s latest feature film work includes Lynn Shelton’s SWORD OF TRUST which premiered opening night to a sold out audience at the South by Southwest Film Festival. Click HERE for the full review of the film.

Oldak is an award winning filmmaker whose work has been showcased in some of the finest film festivals throughout the world. He has photographed large and small-scale feature films, episodic television, documentaries, and numerous commercial works.

“The entire filmmaking process is collaborative, creative, and extremely fulfilling on so many levels,” explains Oldak.  “I enjoy, more than anything, working alongside passionate artists to help visualize their script in a daring and impactful way.  An integral part of the process is constantly thinking outside of the box and off-the-cuff.”
