Christopher Faloona


Christopher Faloona was a Torchwood: Miracle Day director of photography whose work included Rendition and Dead of Night. At roughly the same time as he was working on Miracle Day, he was also the permanent cinematographer on Steven Spielberg's 2011 science fiction series, Falling Skies.

Faloona's career started out with a wide variety of camera and electrical department jobs in the 1980s and early 1980s. He was, for instance, a gaffer on Jim Carrey's The Mask and for a time on Tales from the Crypt. By the mid-1990s, he had begun to work as a director of photography on that show, and had also begun to be hired as the DOP on some smaller theatrical film productions. By the turn of the century, he was being employed on big-budget movies, though typically as the second unit DOP. His highest-visibility film in this capacity was undoubtedly 2002's Spider-Man. After this experience, he largely returned to television full time. Throughout the 2000s he has been steadily employed, moving from one series to another. Amongst the series on which he as the main DOP are: Birds of Prey, Commander in Chief, and Without a Trace.
