CineSmarts is the blog of two Cinematographers, Andrew Poland and John Veleta.

The two DP’s shoot music videos, commercials, short films, and feature films.  They have both been nationally recognized and often collaborate on projects.  They currently reside in Los Angeles where they freelance.  They often work with their own 5D and 7D camera rigs, but are trained in RED, 16mm, 35mm, and HD formats.

They hope that you find this blog as entertaining and informative as they find their lives and work.  Feel free to contact them at
