Isaac Rosenthal was born in Hamburg, Germany. As a young boy, he became obsessed with conceiving, engineering, and building. While dreams quickly outrun practicality, filmmaking was the last frontier for somebody who refuses surrendering to growing up in mediocrity. He pursued his passion in cinematography and directing at the Los Angeles Film School. His pioneering in small size action camera photography led to him in helping to develop cameras that would shoot the hectic “race” scenes on Michael Mann’s LUCK for HBO.
