Acclaimed cinematographer Claudio Miranda achieved notoriety working at the forefront of filmmaking technology alongside several of Hollywood's more respected directors. After receiving his start as part of the film crew on the U2 concert documentary "Rattle and Hum" (1988), Miranda earned his stripes performing duties as an electrician, gaffer and lighting technician on feature films like "Crimson Tide" (1995) under such directors as Tony Scott. In addition to cultivating more work with Scott, another professional relationship that proved highly beneficial for the aspiring cinematographer was the one he formed with David Fincher on projects like "Se7en" (1995) and "Fight Club" (1999). Having gained further experience shooting a myriad of music videos and television commercials over the ensuing years, Miranda was given his first cinematographer's assignment on the romantic comedy "Failure to Launch" (2006). After impressing the director with his work shooting additional footage for Fincher's dramatic-thriller "Zodiac" (2007), he was hired by the exacting filmmaker to act as director of photography for the visually mind-boggling fable "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (2008). The work on the latter film earned Miranda scores of accolades and paved the way for future cinematography work on films like Joseph Kosinski's technological marvel "TRON: Legacy" (2010) and director Ang Lee's "Life of Pi" (2012), another mesmerizing effort that once again made Miranda the subject of universal critical praise. After years of climbing the Hollywood ladder, Miranda definitively vaulted to the top of the international cinematography world.
