The 7 Filmmakers & Cinematographers You Need To Follow On Instagram

So much of the content on this site is dedicated to education, whether it be in the form of insight, experience, reviews, or news. But another huge component to any filmmakers creative journey is inspiration. I always recommend that filmmakers consume as much content as possible so that they can passively become inspired and taught the language of cinema and imagery. One of the easiest ways to get more exposure to this type of visual inspiration is – you guessed it, Instagram.

Filmmakers & DPs to Follow On Instagram

While Instagram photos are obviously not a substitute for being inspired by watching a great film or reading a great script, they still do provide a valuable look at the work of some of the best filmmakers out there. Personally speaking, when I’m looking for inspiration for a script, idea, or a type of look, I will often use imagery to inspire my thought process and get the creative juices flowing. The filmmakers on this list are just a few of my favorites… Listed in no particular order:
