More and more of our stories are told through visual media than ever before. We’ve each become documentarians of modern life – its tragedies and its triumphs – showcasing the context of our daily lives and decisions via Instagram or Snapchat. However, simply capturing moments can’t be described as documentary photography. There’s something more than […]
KENNY MORRISON, IN PERSON
I’ve always had a passion for making images. I love storytelling too. Who doesn’t like a good story? Being a director and cinematographer keeps me involved in every detail of a project, which is exhilarating. But it only works because of the collaboration. A good idea is just that.
I love sailing too. Like photography, I’ve been doing it since I was very young. My instinct is to push the boundaries, find the limits of a situation – knowing that I’m in control and trying not to fall into a comfort zone. When I’m on a boat, I take the responsibility very seriously because there are other people on the boat and Mother Nature can get wily in a hurry. It’s all connected – being humble in the face of creation, exploring ideas, searching for a touch of originality.
New Orleans is my home. I think that has something to do with the eclectic nature of my work.
And so I’m evolving and opening new doors along the way. I love directing commercials because they are all about craft and the language of cinema and my art projects give me a chance to experiment and grow. Still photography is where I discovered the magic of creating images. I am devoted to detail and cutting edge technology.
That’s what these different brands are about. The language of filmmaking evolves. I’m a student for life.

We are keen to build relationships with other great brands.
Yes, we have a true worldwide nexus of very good visual talents, but sometimes we prefer to keep it local.
New Orleans is where we live.
Now we can execute great ideas, no matter the size…
It’s a narrative way of thinking.

As a visual effects supervisor and creative director, he has helmed national projects for Disney, NBC, A&E, Showtime, Katy Perry, Pink and Gatorade.

Beauté et Bête
Beauté et Bête is the curious story of two image-makers whose disparate backgrounds form a near perfect union. Directors, cinematographers and photographers, the duo of Elizabeth Perrin and Kenny Morrison share a love for all things fashion and beauty. Their slightly askew artistic inclinations allow Kenny and Elizabeth to complement one another quite beautifully. “Desire Without End” is their first project together, setting a precedent for exquisite visual artistry.

Prior to the advent of digital reproduction, if you wanted to see a movie, you went to the theater. And if you wanted to see it again, you went back to the theater. Throughout my life, certain films have resonated in such a way that they’ve merited multiple trips to the theater. The Hateful […]
Sharing a vision is no simple task. Even the closest of companions often find themselves at odds when working towards a common creative goal because art is subjective and its interpretation is as well. So how can a creative director be sure that the cinematographer he chooses to collaborate with will effectively recreate his vision? […]
