David Worth was motivated to pursue a career in filmmaking after seeing the Orson Welles film CITIZEN KANE while he was still in high school. Later, he majored in Motion Pictures at UCLA before working his way up the film production ladder on the mean streets of Hollywood.
His efforts were noticed by Clint Eastwood and David was able to become the Director of Photography on two of Mr. Eastwood's films, BRONCO BILLY & ANY WHICH WAY YOU CAN, before he Photographed the original BLOODSPORT & Directed the original KICKBOXER with Jean-Claude Van Damme.
He worked all over the world as a Director / DP from Hollywood to Hong Kong, Bangkok to Indonesia, Italy to Israel, Cape Town to Bulgaria and back again. In addition to talents like Mr. Eastwood and Mr. Van Damme he has also worked with Shelley Winters, France Nuyen, Roy Scheider, Sondra Locke, Dennis Hopper and Bruce Campbell.
Over the past several years David has transitioned into academia teaching filmmaking at Chapman University, USC, Chapman Singapore, where he also lectured at the NYU Tisch Asia campus and is currently on the faculty at UCLA and The Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
His first book: THE CITIZEN KANE CRASH COURSE IN CINEMATOGAPHY... is available at www.amazon.com and his next book on the visionary films and filmmakers of the last one hundred years in already in the works.
David's last two productions were HD and he is a convert to the new paradigm of capture and delivery, believing that with today's technology, quality films can be made anywhere on the planet.
