Enrique Chediak´s camerawork adds to the fast-paced, visceral feel of Boiler Room. Chediak is quickly becoming a sought-after cinematographer. He won the 1997 Sundance Film Festival´s Best Cinematography Award for Morgan J. Freeman´s Hurricane Streets, which also won the Audience Award. Chediak has worked non-stop since then, most recently shooting The Faculty, directed by Robert Rodriguez, and Maggie Greenwald´s Songcatcher.
His other credits include Desert Blue for Morgan J. Freeman, Frogs for Snakes and Remembering Six. He made his feature debut with American Southern, directed by John Joshua.
Born in Quito, Ecuador, Chediak entered NYU´s Graduate Film Program in 1992 and went on to win the Best Cinematography Award at the First Run Film Festival for his short films Angels Don´t Know, Memorial Day and Darkness. He wrote and directed his NYU thesis film El Rio in the Ecuadorian rainforest over a two-week period immediately before starting production on Hurricane Streets. El Rio was awarded Best Student Short at the 1998 Hamptons Film Festival, and both Best Student Short and the Audience Award at the 1998 Shorts International Film Festival.
