About Me

Bio

Powell Robinson is an award-winning narrative and commercial Cinematographer based out of Los Angeles, represented by Zero Gravity Management.

While his clientele for music video and commercial work includes world-renowned talent such as Doja Cat, The Weeknd, Jack White, Pedro Pascal, and Megan Fox – his main passion lives in feature filmmaking. Over the last two years, Powell has shot two horror films for Hulu and Worthenbrooks (previously 20th Digital). The first of which, Appendage, premiered at SXSW, and had its final festival screening at SITGES. The second is awaiting announcement for a fall 2024 release.

Notable independent feature work in the past includes Threshold (Arrow Video), Greenlight (Horror Collective), and the documentary feature Conversion (Gravitas Ventures) narrated by Zachary Quinto.

Powell's love for intense genre content extends into his short form work as well, having shot multiple short films for CryptTV, Hulu Bite Size Halloween, and independent shorts like 10 Shots premiering at Screamfest in Los Angeles, Marked at Beyondfest, and Accomplice at Dances with Films and Shriekfest.
