Director of Photography
Kasper Tuxen found himself drawn to the camera at the age of 13 while working as an actor on the set of Niels Gråbøl’s The Hideaway (Moevog Funder).
Within a decade, he had changed his vocation and, at The National Film School of Denmark, began an extensive collaboration as cinematographer with director Martin de Thurah. The duo completed many projects together, most notably the short Young Men Falling, which world-premiered at the 2008 Cannes International Film Festival.
Mr. Tuxen’s career as cinematographer has encompassed documentary features and shorts; the International Emmy Award-winning series The Protectors; Anders Morgenthaler’s features Echo and Princess; and his first American feature, 3 Backyards, which earned the Directing Award for Eric Mendelsohn at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, and which starred Edie Falco, Elias Koteas, Embeth Davidtz, and Rachel Resheff.
He has subsequently been the director of photography on the upcoming feature The Wait, starring Jena Malone and Chloë Sevigny, and directed by M. Blash; and on commercials for directors Mark Romanek and Chris Milk.
