Oscar-nominated, Emmy award-winning Luke Geissbühler has always been motivated by projects of cultural significance and persuasive beauty. His higher profile achievements include Borat 1 & 2, Fahrenheit 11/9, Helvetica, Buck, and Netflix's Abstract-The Art of Design.  Raised by two Swiss graphic designers, he earned a BFA in Cinematography from New York University and independently persued mechanical engineering, having designed several electric vehicles and film camera modifications.  In 2010, Luke became unexpectedly world-renowned when he built a homemade spacecraft that captured breathtaking footage of the blackness of space and curvature of the Earth as seen in the viral video Space Balloon.  As a director of photography, he has travelled the world over, orchestrating challenging and unique films for Adam McKay, Will Ferrell, Sacha Baron Cohen, Michael Moore, Joe Berlinger, OKGo, Doug Liman, Barry Levinson, David Wain, and Katherine Bigelow.  He has been entrusted by HBO, Netflix, 20th Century Fox, Universal Pictures, Focus Features, Sony, PBS, Amazon, Warner Brothers, and countless others to deliver moving and meaningful films.  Sparked by the pandemic, Luke founded Microcrews, a think tank consortium of highly skilled filmmakers specializing in super-efficient film crews.  His recent releases include the thriller Follow Her, Netflix's Dahmer, Apes Together Strong, and Ron Delsener Presents. 

The Swiss name Geissbühler is pronouced similarly to the words "Guys fueler" in the U.S.
