The Artist

Simon England

After moving to California to attend California State University, Northridge where he received a Bachelors degree in Film Production: Cinematography, he began his career at Panavision Woodland Hills. A member of Local 600, Simon has strived to be professional with upmost efficiency and attention to detail in all aspects of his career.
