My name, Aasulv, which no one outside of my native Norway can correctly pronounce, literally means "Wolf". Now that we have that business out of the way, let me tell you just a bit about who I am and what I've done.
I'm originally from Oslo, Norway, where I started my career as a Director of Photography, photographing documentaries before moving to Los Angeles in 1997 to study cinematography at the American Film Institute. Since graduating from the AFI, I've worked on feature films, over 50 documentaries and numerous commercials. My feature film credits include “Half-Life,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2008, won the Grand Jury Prize at the GenArt Film Festival in New York and screened at other major festivals including the Los Angeles Film Festival and the Tokyo International Film Festival; “Entry Level,” a comedy starring D.B. Sweeney and Missi Pyle; and “GASP,” shot in Beijing, starring Chinese superstar Ge You (“To Live”) and John Savage (“The Deer Hunter”); and “RockBarnes,” a hilarious mockumentary about a narcissistic self-help guru who hires a film crew to follow him on tour. "RockBarnes" won Best Actor award at the Orlando Film Festival.
I'm a member of the Norwegian Cinematographers Association, FNF.
I live in Southern California with my wife Mari and our daughter Mimi.
