Academy Award-nominated cinematographer Bradford Young is the first recipient of the $25,000 Eyebeam and RLab Storyteller-in-Residence Award. Young is widely respected for his signature filming style, working with single sources of available light with masterful artistry and keen sensitivity to his subjects.

He has served as Director of Photography on celebrated films that include Arrival, Selma, A Most Violent Year, and Solo, among others. With Eyebeam and RLab he will lead critical thinking, education, and the production of new work exploring the role of emerging technologies like virtual reality and augmented reality in storytelling.

Eyebeam models a new approach to artist-led creation for the public good; we are a non-profit that provides significant professional support and money to exceptional artists for the realization of important ideas that wouldn’t exist otherwise. Nobody else is doing this.
