Roderick A. Santiano found his love for cinematography at the age of 14 when an innate sense of lighting, camera work and editing inspired him to seek a career in film. He was awarded a scholarship to Art Center College of Design’s Film Department in Pasadena based on quality and merit of his submission film reel. Since graduating from Art Center in 1996 he has worked on countless shorts, commercials, feature films and documentaries. Many of Roderick’s projects over the past twenty+ years have won several awards in film festivals, have gone on to gain national television exposure and have also won Clio and AICP awards. His documentary projects include NEW YORK DOLL—an Official Selection for the Sundance Film Festival in 2005—and the Billy Joel documentary feature, THE LAST PLAY AT SHEA.
