Cinematographer Elliot Davis has shot more than 50 films, including the 2016 Sundance Grand Prize Winner The Birth of a Nation, “Lords of Dogtown, Twilight, Out of Sight, Thirteen, White Oleander, I Am Sam, The Iron Lady and the pilot for AMC’s Hell on Wheels.
“As a director, RT Herwig paints the human condition with rare authenticity, drawing from a psychological palette of rich visual concepts, narrative moods, actors’ performances and a spark of delicious mystery.”
His debut feature, Saint Christopher (aka The Good Thief) is a moody, glacially paced, dutch angled, 35-mm film that put him through the paces as a learning experience. His film screened around the country at various festivals and private screenings before being picked up for worldwide distribution by Vanguard Cinema.
“I come across many talented directors with a sharp understanding and passion for films, filmmaking and acting. However, it is the rare talent who is able to develop a multi-dimensional grasp of the process and showcase it in his work. RT Herwig is one such rare director. Mr. Herwig handled the task of bringing a thought provoking and very atmospheric piece of cinema to an audience, and he delivered with his debut feature film SAINT CHRISTOPHER – aka THE GOOD THIEF.” – Bob Zmuda, Exec. Producer of MAN ON THE MOON and founder of COMIC RELIEF
