DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY
Johanna was born and raised in France where she studied the craft of cinematography at a technical school, followed by filmmaking classes at the University La Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris. Seeking to enrich her European approach with the American perspective, she moved to Los Angeles in 2011 and is now a cinematographer graduate from the prestigious American Film Institute.
Outside of her studies, she has worked as a cinematographer on a number of projects, including narrative films award-winning, music videos, PSA award-winning, TV shows, commercials, interviews and documentaries.
She also had the chance to work with great talents, such as Guillaume Depardieu, Carmen Chaplin, Linh Dan Pham, Jacques Nolot and Bernard Le Coq.
She has been passionate about creating and experimenting with meaningful images since a very young age. Inspired by the Impressionist and Surrealist movements, she is always trying to find a way to communicate real life ideas in an original way. She loves the challenge of giving life to a story, defined by the resources available, working with the beautiful association of creativity and technique.
She loves to say she is a visual psychologist : her role is to understand and interpret the emotions of the characters, to create for them the best visual atmosphere to act in.
Rachel Clark grew up in the world of production and media, as the daughter of television engineer at the first Christian television network in the United States. She caught “the bug” for production and storytelling at the age of 15, was able to train under some of the most talented and standup people in the business. She graduated from California State University, Chico with a Communications/Media Arts Emphasis Degree and has worked with a variety of organizations, ministries, and non-profits nationally and internationally ever since.
Most recently, Rachel served as Director of Communication Arts at Bridgeway Christian Church, her home church. She led the media, communications, and arts charge for over 8 years as the church grew from 300 people to over 4300 people. She’s currently the owner of 54 Films, where she works with her partner and husband, Dave, helping people tell their stories through film, design, and consulting. She is also a producer and editor on the upcoming film, “In God We Trust,” in partnership with Kejo Productions, Nu Artifact Films, and Bridgeway Films (a ministry of Bridgeway Christian Church.)
Rachel and Dave reside in Northern California with their two miracle children. (Literal miracles… ask her about it sometime!) She enjoys family adventure days, longs for time to sketch, and is currently obsessed with way too many good books. She has just come to accept the fact that she is, in fact, a full fledged adult (something about getting more excited about the cheese aisle then the candy aisle at the grocery store.)
