    About me

    Hello! I'm James Codeglia, a Director of Photography who has shot hundreds of projects for the web, television, and the silver screen, including Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Trek Into Darkness. I worked on many projects for J.J. Abrams including stop-motion animation, viral and experimental videos, short films, TV shows and movies.

    Other narrative credits include “Krantz” by Christopher Cantwell (creator of Halt and Catch Fire), the award-winning film “Thumb,” and the recent music video “Alive” by Empire of the Sun which has 27 million views on YouTube.

    I shot viral videos and TV ads for Disney such as Mickey Mouse in New York and Darth Vader in Disneyland.

    Currently I am available for hire as a Director of Photography on features, short films, independent projects, commercials, music videos and more. I own a RED Weapon 6K camera. I'm also a skilled editor, high-end visual effects artist, photographer, and overall a pretty nice guy. ;)

    You can see more of my work at Ghostlight.com, view my reel, or check out my IMDB page. I look forward to hearing from you and wish you luck on your endeavors!
