If a Million People See My Movie, I Hope They See a Million Different Movies.
Alfred Asuncion is a cinematographer based in Manila, Philippines. Having been in the industry since 2009, he is a new breed of filmmaker who continuously seeks to blend the best of classical cinema with modern filmmaking tools and techniques. If there is one aspect that remains consistent in his endeavors behind lights and camera, it is his unfaltering commitment to achieve the overall vision of his director while incorporating his own nuances for creating powerful visual sequences.
His filmography as cinematographer includes two feature films: Diane Ventura’s “Mulat (Awaken),” which found itself as a finalist for the 2014 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) New Wave category, and “Bang Bang Alley,” a crime anthology that includes Ely Buendia’s “Pusakal” and Yan Yuzon’s “Aso’t Pusa’t Daga.” His recent short films include Ruelo Lozendo’s “Divine XY,” Grace Simbulan’s “Bonifacio,” and Diane Ventura’s “Therapist.”
Alfred is currently onboard as a cinematographer for TV5's lifestyle programs and as an associate cinematographer [Lighting Director] on ABS-CBN’s primetime telenovela remake of “Pangako Sa’Yo.”
