What do the banks of the Tugela River and a third story Scottish broom closet have in common? They were both home to the fledgling love of film that Trevor Calverley fostered before he became a wellknown and respected DOP.
Over the years Trevor has devoured every storytelling art form. Although he has worked his way up through the usual ranks, Trevor keeps his voracious visual appetite at bay by studying the works of some of his favourites. Everything from the breathtaking works of Erwin Olaf to the rich and formidable genius of Neil Gaiman with some Edward Hopper in between for good measure is fair game in the quest to find the magic in every frame. Lights and time. That would be his wish. But with a stills sensibility like his, and a well honed flair for finding the best part of any story, Trevor believes that collaboration is how the cinematographer helps to translate the idea into a visual narrative. "The best cinematography is chameleonic" says Trevor " we need to know we are using all the tools available to us to interpret the specific vision of the film we are in. Not to develop a single style."
