Nathan Youssef (aka NAFA) is a filmmaker on the rise. We took five with the cinematographer to talk about his unique take on music videos and his lofty ambitions.
Sydney’s Nathan Youssef kicked off his career as a camera assistant and in five short years, he’s built up a commanding portfolio. Spanning commercials, short and feature-length films, documentaries, and music videos, his style is effortlessly poetic. And though some of his portrayals reflect life at the extremes, you can always sense his guiding hand, artfully framing the provocative imagery.
