Having grown up in New Zealand, Seresin moved to the UK to pursue his dream in film. He earned a stellar reputation in the commercial and television world before making his feature film debut on Mike Barker’s THE JAMES GANG.  While Seresin began to flourish in the independent film world, he was able to strengthen his action prowess as 2nd unit director of photography on such films as LARA CROFT: TOMB RAIDER and TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES. Seresin got his break taking over for Dariusz Wolski, ASC on first unit for PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD’S END, when Wolski had to leave early to start work on another project.
 
In between films, Seresin uses commercials and music videos as a creative testing ground for new equipment and techniques. The PUMA commercial that he shot, ‘After Hours Athlete’, was awarded the Film Grand Prix at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity and the NIKE commercial that he shot, ‘Winner Stays On’, was used at NIKE’s main commercial during the the FIFA World Cup.
 
Seresin has lensed a number of notable features with big-name directors. He collaborated with Michael Bay on TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN and PAIN AND GAIN. He shot Marc Forster’s WORLD WAR Z starring Brad Pitt (sharing credit with Robert Richardson, ASC), and Tony Scott’s UNSTOPPABLE starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pine. More recently, Seresin worked with Doug Liman on CHAOS WALKING starring Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland, GODZILLA VS. KONG featuring Alexander Skarsgard and Millie Bobby Brown, and Niki Caro’s upcoming feature MOTHER starring Jennifer Lopez. He’s currently lensing the sequel to GODZILLA VS. KONG.
