Photocean is a production company established in 2008 by me, Kim Silfving. I´ve been working as a cinematographer and editor for the Swedish public service TV-channel, SVT, and other TV-channels since the year 2000. During these years I have been filming everything from news and documentaries to promotional films, TV-commercials, short films and music videos. Some of the productions are filmed in countries like Moldavia, Mexico, Kurdistan and Ethiopia.
Clients during the past year have been companies, organizations and TV-productions including Kinnevik, Prime PR, Apotek Hjärtat, Dagens Industri, Blocket, Världens Barn, Nobel, GoKväll, among others.
In 2011 and 2012 I studied at Prague film school in Czech Republic, there specializing in cinematography. During my time in Prague I worked as DOP on many different short film productions as well as a web-based serie.
My goal as a cinematographer is to be able to cross the borders between TV and film, and to work within both fields. I always do my utmost to ensure that my customer will be satisfied. Through hard work and personal commitment I guarantee a satisfying result for the intended production. I work on different formats and cameras, depending on the project and its budget.
I own my own camera kit, a Canon C500 Camera that is able to shoot 4K as well as high speed. Along with that I own a variety of lenses and basic light- and sound equipment.
I´m currently shooting two documentaries that are coming up on Swedish Television during 2014, as well as assisting the camera crew in a Swedish feature film production by the director Mikael Marcimain.
