About Melissa Pratt

With one foot in the narrative world and one foot in the documentary world, I am a versatile Cinematographer. On one end I love to create intricate lighting designs and be able to express stories visually through meticulously designed frames. On the other end, I love being put in a location, being able to find the story and capture it in the most dynamic way as the story unfolds on the go. I am finishing up my BFA in Film and Television Degree at DePaul University, with a concentration in Cinematography and a Minor in Documentary. My Goal? To create films that capture the audience visually and help change someone’s perspective. I am still learning and always improving.
