NORTHVILLE, Mich. - June 8, 2020 - PRLog -- Pomegranate Pictures is pleased to announce the attachment of Kevin D. Hewitt, SOC as the motion picture project's Director of Photography. "I'm thrilled to have Kevin head up our camera, grip, gaffer, electric, and sound departments. His experience as a DP, camera and Steadicam operator is legendary, and his drone footage is pretty cool, too. With Kevin aboard we're assured of putting our backer's investment clearly on the screen," said Stan Williams, the project's Executive Producer.

Kevin is a 35-year veteran Director of Photography, Cinematographer, Camera Operator, Steadicam owner/operator, and FAA licensed Drone owner/pilot. He is best known for his Steadicam and camera work on Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014), Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and A Most Violent Year (2014).

As a Director of Photography, Kevin has worked on numerous feature-length films and hundreds of local and national spots. He's traveled to 29 different countries teaming up with all the major networks photographing everything from a powerful documentary on the Holocaust, to cooking adventures in search of exotic food for the Food Network, to a series of programs on flight for Discovery Channel and HBO, to mixed martial arts with M-1 Global, and to 5 years of Steadicam on Henry Ford's Innovation Nation on CBS.

In the Reality arena, Kevin has worked with ABC's "Extreme Makeover- Home Edition," along with "Hard Core Pawn" and "Antiques Roadshow."

Before that Kevin worked for the NBC affiliate WDIV in Detroit, where he was the Electronic Field Production Supervisor of a seven-person team filming commercials, documentaries, music videos and special programming aimed at syndication. Kevin's talent and hard work were rewarded during his time at WDIV with numerous Emmy Awards.

Pomegranate's writer-director, Weam Namou said, "Given Kevin's long running professional career in the film industry, we're excited to have him as Pomegranate's Director of Photography. We know that his expertise and experience will serve and enhance our film's narrative as he translates the script into viewable images."

Pomegranate is a dramedy by writer-director Weam Namou, based on her childhood experiences immigrating from Iraq to the United States, and then as an adult living through the presidential election of 2016. Consequently, Pomegranate is the story about how, in the weeks before the election of Donald Trump in 2016, a young, politically liberal, Iraqi Muslim immigrant struggles to find her footing in a neighborhood of well-to-do, politically conservative, Iraqi Christians, while battling her family's fears of deprivation and demands of loyalty to Muslim traditions.
