Halation is an effect that occurs only with film stock, never in digital cinema. To understand it, you have to peel back some of the layers – quite literally – and understand some physics.

About Tobias Deml
I'm a cinematographer originally from Vienna, Austria. I've been a visual artist for 15 years now, and a director of photography since 2009. I started freelance in CGI, photography and graphic design before coming to film - which ultimately allows me now to command a pretty diverse skillset as a DP. This working knowledge in a variety of departments is always useful on more complex projects, where collaboration with VFX supervisors and such is paramount. . I've now shot 9 feature films and more than 100 short-form projects, and am based both in Los Angeles and New York City - I go back and forth for projects about once a month. . As a Director of Photography, I was lucky enough to work with some stellar actors such as Amy Smart, Sam Heughan, Colin Hanks, Denise Richards, Michael Madsen, Ty Simpkins, Morris Chestnut, Julian McMahon, Robin Tunney, Jeremy Sisto, Mena Suvari, Kate Ashfield, Andrew Daly and others. . Most notably in my work is the blackpills series "A Girl is A Gun", the SXSW-premiered feature thriller "Hangman", the Verizon Go90 Series "The Boonies", and the Netflix horror film "Drifter". I am available to travel and film anywhere in the world.
