COLUMBITE WINS WEBBY ACADEMY AWARRD
           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."
        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."

VARIETY | BRITISH-FRENCH ‘ROAD GAMES'
          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."
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"

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.”
'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"

'THE BODY’ WINS MELIES D'OR
“Affecting… Excellent… Believable and very well photographed” - Roger Deakins ASC, BSC
theguardian
Movie Review World | JOSEPH’S REEL “Harnessing the magic of light with astonighing effect is Cinematographer Eben Bolter. Once again Bolter showcases incredible ability in not only capturing some breathtaking imagery for the many contrasting sequences, but in making full use of the equisite locations, bathing them in a Lubezki-esque beauty."
MARK KERMODE
Director | BLUE BORSALINO “Eben's lighting speaks in ways characters cannot and emotions are elevated, always to serve the story. He embraces available light effortlessly and strives to root all practical sources in the real. Always improving, he researches intently and approaches each film as if a blank canvas and as a craftsman brings all his experience and impeccable cinematic taste. Ultimately he makes films better - both the process of making them as a collaborator, and as a fellow audience member. Eben has that undying spark for what he does, because above all else, he cares. That mixed with supreme talent and a love of cinema - I think there's nothing he can't achieve.” 
GUY PITT
ALLAN BROWN
EMILY CORCORAN
Producer | THE BORDERLANDS | THE FORGOTTEN “Eben is a producer's dream - friendly, communicative, fast, and the quality of his work speaks for itself.”
MARK LOBATTO
  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.”
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."
The Observer | CHICKEN “Eben Bolter’s widescreen photography captures the warmth, loneliness and harsh reality of this disenfranchised world with unobtrusive aplomb”
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.” 
JENNIFER HANDORF
Director | JOSEPH’S REEL  “Incredibly talented DoP, great to work with and a great sense of composition and the grammar of film.”
Nerdly.co.uk | ROAD GAMES “What also marks ROAD GAMES as one to watch, especially on the big screen is the fantastic use of the isolated countriside setting - which looks absolutely gorgeous thanks to yet more stunning work from DP Eben Bolter. His work here only reaffirms my belief that Bolter is one of the best British DP’s working today - just check out his work on last year’s Frightfest flick The Forgotten for more evidence of that.” 
MICHAEL LAVERS
TIM DENNISON
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.”
