Helena Bowen (Director of Photography)
Helena Bowen is a freelance camera assistant, DIT, and (reluctant) production assistant in Los Angeles, California. Where's the Bloody Money? was a great opportunity to brush off her light meter and get behind the camera again before making the big move to Hollywood. She loved working with her talented friends from BU and one of her favorite university professors, Sam Kauffmann, as well as the Sony PMW-F3, to which she has the same affection as a first born child. Since moving to LA, Helena's most exciting job was 2nd Assistant Camera on In Security (look for it on IMDb) and since then, she has been fortunate enough to be taken under the wing of the 2012 class of the American Film Institute. She would like to thank Boston University for all the opportunities and connections it has brought her. She would be dead in the water without them!
