Chris Heinrich | 1st Assistant

Christopher (Chris) Heinrich hails from El Paso, TX. He began his career there as a film loader at the age of 15, decided not to go to college, and worked within the trenches of indie filmmaking in California from the late 90s through the first decade of the 2000s. He ascended the camera-department ladder in the traditional manner, rising from loader to 2nd, to 1st, to operator, and now cinematographer. He credits his knowledge of cinematography to DPs with whom he has worked, including Steve Yedlin, Brandon Trost, Tom Richmond, ASC, and Steve Gainer, ASC, to name a few. Chris takes pride in the hard work he has put into learning lighting, shot design, and blocking, and loves to do all three really fast. In his free time, he enjoys playing the pedal steel guitar. Heinrich resides in Brooklyn, New York.
