I started pursuing my filmmaking passion in 2014 when I made my first short film, without any formal education in this field. Over the years I independently produced more projects, and then I went on to study Film Production at university.
Cristian Ionuț Necula is a 22-year-old filmmaker from Romania, mainly focused on cinematography. Prior to studying Film Production at the University of Portsmouth, Cristian had been independently learning the craft of filmmaking and making short films for approximately 3 years, out of sheer passion. He has a strong photography background, creativity and technical expertise, with award-winning short films as evidence. His projects have proved successful in both local and international film festivals and his ambition has not ceased, as he continues working on new filmmaking endeavours, both within and outside of his university course. Apart from cinematography, Cristian closely pursues directing, as well, in order to broaden his expertise and engage with as many filmmakers as possible.
