Nele Aunap

Cinematographer & Editor +372 56642487



I am from a small Estonian town Viljandi, I live and work in Tallinn.
I have studied film and arts in Estonia and in the Netherlands.
I have MA cum laude in Documentary Film from
Baltic Film, Media, Arts and Communication School.

During MA studies I made my first short films as a director and cinematographer.
Short documentary “I Thought I Was a Superman” won the Best Documentary award
at Best of BFM 2020 in Tallinn, Estonia. Documentary film projects have so far led me to work
also outside of Estonia in Italy, Germany and Norway. Now I’m in production
with a feature-length documentary “A Place Like Home” as a cinematographer
and have two documentary films “Sleepless Nights” and “Born to Run” in development.

I am a member of Estonian Documentary Guild.

Previously I have worked as an editor and casting director on film and commercial projects.
Together with production companies I have delivered projects to clients from
the Baltics, Finland, the Netherlands, Germany, UK, France, the UAE and Indonesia.

Film photography is led by my personal interests.
This is one of the ways how I like to learn about light, composition and visual storytelling.
