Robert Sherwood

"Creating films that vibrate a deeper knowingness.
Living in the moment, feeling and feeding off the flow of life.
It’s an abundant infinite realm of wonder and we’re getting amongst it."

Robert Sherwood, an award winning cinematographer, born in the Northern Rivers of NSW, Australia. His fascination with film began at an early age; a young computer geek at 12 years old, fixated on editing videos he’d pull from dial up internet, lead to buying his first hi8 handy-cam and he has been editing and shooting video since. Rob got schooled, got lost, and completed a Bachelor of Film at SAE Media College in Byron Bay. 
Rob enjoys the perspective that comes from being an observer, and for him, observation without judgement is true feeling. This is what Rob aims to convey through his visuals – a feeling of truth. Rob’s bond with nature and the sea are a huge catalyst for his style of cinematography.
