COLUMBITE WINS WEBBY
          article "Fans of film shot on actual film - here's a little something to cast your eye on, A short film titled  Joseph's Reel from Director Michael Lavers and  Cinematographer Eben Bolter."
JOSEPH’S REEL TEASER TRAILER
                        article by Eben Bolter. "Cinematographer Eben Bolter sheds light on the look and feel of the six works in our Off the Page project, where journalism met theatre."
THE FORGOTTEN"There is something eminently true to life about his directorial style and the sublime choice to shoot predominantly handheld, with some truly superb cinematography by Eben Bolter … only enhances the reality of this movie.  The Forgotten is a fantastic British horror movie that, even with its flaws, should be seen by all"
FILMING COMMENCES | BRITISH-FRENCH ‘ROAD GAMES'
AMERICAN CINEMATOGRAPHER
'Killer Visuals’ by Iain Stasukevich “He lit with an eye towards reality and used practicals to provide motivation - After premiering at FrightFest in London, The Body made its U.S debut at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas"
UP CLOSE AND POLITICAL
PHIL’S TOP 10 FILMS OF 2014
           film review "This found-footage thriller combines Blair Witch, Paranormal Activity and Peep Show – and makes fantastically unnerving use of a West Country church." "A very punchy, funny, scary movie and a fantastically unnerving location."
Andrew Simpson & Josephine de la Baume | ‘Road Games’   “Road Games” is lensing in Kent (UK) and will next move to the Picardie region in France.” The film is due to be released in 2015.
'BLUE BORSALINO’ KICKSTARTER

GUY PITT
Director | THE FORGOTTEN “Quite simply our film wouldn't have been possible without his  collaborative, story-driven approach, his crew's efficiency, and energy. A great eye for heightening the natural; for capturing the feel of a space; for emoting with the camera but also letting performance do the talking when it's already there on the stage. This was an example of working expertly with a small budget - augmenting, shaping, and moving - to make the environment sing for us and deliver results that defied our limitations.”
Producer | THE BORDERLANDS | THE FORGOTTEN “Eben is a producer's dream - friendly, communicative, fast, and the quality of his work speaks for itself.”
MICHAEL LAVERS
Director | GREYHAWK “I can't really speak highly enough of Eben Bolter. I knew as soon as he came on board Greyhawk that I was working with a director of photography who could take my ideas and not just effect them, but make them better, while still giving me exactly what I wanted somehow. A rare gift. He listens, he respects, he interprets and - crucial for a new director like me - he's unstinting with his advice, his help and willingness to try something else.Much of that might apply to any good head of department. What, for me, makes him a superb DP is all the above plus a truly excellent eye and an ability to create  wonderfully arresting images whatever the circumstances he’s working in.” 
EMILY CORCORAN
Director | JOSEPH’S REEL  “Incredibly talented DoP, great to work with and a great sense of composition and the grammar of film.”
TIM DENNISON
OLIVER FRAMPTON
Producer | CONFINE “Eben Bolter is not only a highly skilled technical DoP, with a large scope of knowledge of all the new technologies available to a film, but his youthful enthusiasum and energy gave our film 'CONFINE’ a fresh and ambitious edge. On a relatively low budget, he was able to give our film a slick, smooth look and his lighting choices gave a one location movie a sense of time transition and variety thathighlighted our set and actor's best features.  I look forward to working with this versatile young DOP in the future.” 
JENNIFER HANDORF
  Producer | THE HOARDER | THE MUTANT CHRONICLES   “It was my pleasure to engage a highly capable and talented Director of Photography on the film, THE HOARDER. Although Eben is a young individual, he has the lighting knowledge and wisdom of a seasoned Cinematographer. He has done a fantastic job for us, lighting The Hoarder and I think  it will only be a matter of time before he becomes a highly sought-after individual – with his name mixed in with the likes of the Roger Deakins of the world.”
