Haider Zafar - Cinematographer

Originally from Milton Keynes (yes the town of roundabouts!) Haider went on to study Creative Visualisation at Teesside University in Middlesbrough.

After graduation he began working for an architectural practice as a 3D Visualiser, producing imagery for in-house development, competition bids and planning permission.

He then ventured out to live the 'dream' of becoming a filmmaker and produced several shorts, which include Homeless and Exist. This was followed by a break into the film industry where he has shot over twelve feature films as Cinematographer with key titles White Collar Hooligan, Vendetta, Top Dog and Assassin.

Film critics Mark Kermode, Total Film, HeyUGuys and UKFilmNews have all praised the cinematography of Vendetta.

Haider is currently in post-production for his co-directorial début - The Conversations. The Offbeat Comedy-Drama follows Dentist wannabe Stand-Up Comedian Al and his quest to literally erase the memories of Blond American Muse, Ellie Goldsmith.

Whilst not shooting features, Haider heads Mutiny Media as a Creative Director where the team produce shorts, music videos, commercials and promos for a variety of clients.
