Women Who Made History In The Film Industry: Rachel Morrison
In honor of Women’s History Month, we at Crews Control would like to showcase some of the groundbreaking women who have broken barriers and made history within the video and film industry. Women have been an integral part of cinema since it’s early origins, but history is still being made in the present day by some amazing women. In this blog, we would like to highlight the accomplishments of cinematographer, Rachel Morrison.
Rachel Morrison was born on April 27, 1978 in Massachusetts. She attended New York University where she completed a double major in film and photography. She decided to focus on cinematography. Morrison then began her career in television, working on series and telefilms for a number of networks.
She is best known for the films “Fruitvale Station” (2013), “Cake” (2014), “Dope” (2015) and “Mudbound” (2017). Morrison also served as cinematographer for Marvel’s “Black Panther” (2018). For her work on “Mudbound”, she earned a nomination for an Academy Award for Best Cinematography, making her the first woman ever recognized in that category.
