I’m Jim Elson, I’m a freelance director and cinematographer.

I’m interested in short-form storytelling, and creating films that have a social impact. My work lives between the worlds of journalism and cinema, and I believe in the expanded potential of video online. My films have been featured in VICE, The Guardian, ESPN, The Fader (and more) and I was noimated for a J Award.

While I mainly focus on non-fiction, I’ve been known to make the odd music video.  

I'm from Melbourne, but I now call Berlin home.
