Beginning as a field producer for MTV at the age of 17, Director/Cinematographer Andrew Wonder has never been one to waste time. Less than three years later he was accepted into the International Cinematographers Guild while attending NYU for film. Throughout college he worked his way up as a cinematographer and shot his first feature film, Michael Almereyda’s New Orleans Mon Amour (SXSW 2008), before his 21st birthday. At 23 he won MTV's MADE an Emmy Award for directing its 200th Episode. Then, at 25, he made an appearance on NBC's TODAY Show, for breaking into New York subway tunnels and climbing the Williamsburg Bridge for his viral hit Undercity.
Passionate about staying ahead of the technological curve, Andrew has been tapped by filmmakers including Antoine Fuqua, Harris Savides, ASC, Paul Schrader and Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer David Turnley, to implement his technical knowledge, ingenuity and unique style of working with digital cameras.
Today he’s directing commercials for clients like Samsung, Skype, Hershey and GE including his latest viral hit, GE’s “Juice Train” which was featured by American Cinematographer for it’s innovative way of capturing a 48 hour anamorphic time lapse on the front of a locomotive.
