The Barbaro-Gould Foundation is excited and honored to be joined by renowned cinematographer, Bill Mills, and his production company, Digital Cine HD. As Racing To Rio’s Director of Photography, Bill will be bringing a new layer of beauty, passion and expertise to the project.
As an ocean-lover, Bill is licensed as a captain, sailor, master scuba diver and has a myriad of experience with filming both on and under the water. Bill is especially passionate about marine projects, having extensively traveled the world’s waters on multiple projects including National Geographic’s Pursuit of the Giant Bluefin. In addition to his time with National Geographic, Bill has worked on CBS 60 minutes, with the Department of Defense and with the National Terrorism Preparedness Institute, amongst many more.
Bill has done cinematography for television and commercial documentaries, as well as feature films. His work has earned him six Emmys, a Primetime Emmy nomination for Best Cinematography, a Kodak Vision Award, three Cine Golden Eagles, a Platinum Best of Show Aurora, and a fellowship with the New York based Explorer’s Club.
Having spent the past eighteen years in St. Petersburg, Bill has a strong connection to the local community and is an avid sailor, himself.
Our esteemed Director of Photography, Bill Mills, our entire crew, and all of our sponsors are thrilled to be collaborating on a project that seamlessly ties together the arts, the community, and the great sport of sailing.
Stay tuned this week as we profile each of our crew members on the Racing to Rio set.
