THE UNDEPARTED picks up 2 Best Cinematography Awards from The New York Cinematography Awards and TOP SHORTS Film Festival!!!

As a Director of Photography, I know that Cinematography is about a team, and I am thankful and proud of our team and the work we did on The Undeparted. We are hopeful that we’ll have the opportunity to expand this documentary film, into a Series!

We are thankful to both the New York Cinematography Awards and Top Shorts for their recognition.

Awards from Top Shorts

Best Documentary – Best Cinematagraphy – Best Editing – Honorable Mention Directing

Also, Top Shorts gave our film a wonderful review, that makes us feel great!

“Even if you don’t believe in ghosts, this fascinating documentary will leave you speechless (and less skeptical). Chris McGuinness is a brilliant storyteller and a talented director-cinematographer. The editing by Beth Anthony and score by Gabriel DiMarco keep the tension high throughout. Amazing work.”  – TOP SHORTS


I am always excited for new creative cinematography projects, documentary films, TV commercials, and narrative projects, to sink into visually! I love making images and immersing myself in the collaborative/creative process. If you have a cool project, let’s talk!

Thank you!

Chris McGuinness is an award winning Cinematographer / Director of Photography serving the Washington, DC, Baltimore, Maryland, and Virginia areas. Chris also travels for shoots in the continental United States of America!
