Sindbad Guggenheim

New York, New York US
Available for Freelance
Open To Virtual Coffee
Sindbad is a director and cinematographer based between New York, Mexico City and Paris. His work ranges from documentaries and non-scripted television to non-profit films and branded content.


Born and raised in Paris, Sindbad moved to New York in 2013 to learn a different kind of documentary filmmaking. Open to all subjects and styles, he however definitely has a greater interest in cinéma vérité and social issue films as he firmly believes in the power of documentaries to create change. He really enjoys the collaborative aspect of filmmaking and when he is not working on his own projects he loves bringing his shooting skills and perspective to other directors' films. He is currently working on an immigration story on both sides of the US/Mexico border and would be happy to share more about it with interested VC members.
