RESUME

Jeff Dolen splits his time between narrative movies and documentaries. He brings an organic and natural style to his narrative projects, and a cinematic approach to his documentary projects.  

The latest example is HBO's McMillion$ which was nominated for 5 Emmy Awards including Best Documentary Series.  Premiered at Sundance 2020 it chronicles the McDonald's Monopoly fraud from the 90s by mixing documentary interviews and verite with cinematic recreations of the actual events that unfolded.

Dolen has shot nine narrative features in the US, Germany, Vietnam, India, and Turkey with the most recent, Maadathy: An Unfairy Tale, premiered at the Busan International Film Festival and won Best Cinematography at Aurangabad International Film Festival.

He has traveled to over 65 countries, and shot documentary series shows for HBO, National Geographics, Discovery, and The Travel Channel.

 

He served as Cinematographer for the premiere episode of Wonder Woman, which won the Emmy Award for Best Travel/Adventure series in 2017.

 

The Other Side of Home, a documentary he shot on the Armenian genocide filmed in Turkey and Armenia, was shortlisted for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short in 2017

 

Dolen studied Fine Arts in Film Production at Chapman University, whom named him the Most Promising Undergraduate Filmmaker, and awarded him the Einstein Award for Creativity, and the Dean's Award of Merit.
