Native Content today announced the addition of award-winning filmmaker Iain Mackenzie to its directorial roster. The prolific Mackenzie is known around the world for his stunning visuals both as a cinematographer and director, with clients including Apple, Coors Light, The Home Depot, Lexus, Visa, Campbell’s, Mercedes, McDonald’s, PNC Bank, Dow, Subaru, and many more. His work ranges from dramatic to humorous and linear to surreal, always anchored by a firm sense of story and atmosphere.
Born and raised in the U.K., Mackenzie earned a degree in photographic arts and film from Polytechnic of Central London (PCL) and cut his teeth as a cinematographer before entering into directing. A passion for craft and a talent for multitasking led Mackenzie to establish himself as both a successful DP and director, lensing his own projects. Building a successful career across Europe, Australia (where he is a member of the Australian Cinematographers Society), and the U.S., Mackenzie has earned countless awards including numerous Cannes Lions, D&AD Pencils, London International Advertising Awards, and a spot on Campaign Brief’s list of the top 20 directors of all time.
“Iain knows the craft of filmmaking inside and out, and his skills as a cinematographer and director are unparalleled,” said Native founder Tomer DeVito. “He has the ability to tell a complete story within every single frame. I’ve known Iain for fourteen years, have admired his work for even longer, and I am thrilled to have him join the Native team.”
