Let's talk doc!


Cody is a director and cinematographer based in Brooklyn, NY. His documentary style is guided by the desire for context, heart, and intimacy. He has lensed documentaries for Netflix, BBC, Vice, Paramount+, PBS, & Vox, and has screened his work at film festivals across the US and UK. His branded projects have earned recognition by Adweek, Digiday, Gerety and Cannes Lions. Cody’s background in sound design and editing informs how he shoots--with an awareness of how each decision contributes to the larger picture. However, don’t be alarmed if he takes out a recorder and starts capturing strange audio for his collection. Cody is a proud member of the Documentary Cinematographers Alliance, and the Video Consortium, where he is putting effort into programs and initiatives that support the documentary community at large. Currently, he is part of a small team running a global documentary mentorship program sponsored by Sony. Lastly, he is an FAA Certified commercial drone pilot.
