At an early age, Blake found himself enthralled with making of clips found on VHS movies (especially the original TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES). He comes from a world of shooting music videos, commercials and shorts. His work has been awarded with the Special Jury Award for Comedic Storytelling at Sundance on the short THE ARM (written and directed by Brie Larson, Sarah Ramos, and Jessie Ennis). His cinematography work in TV include series such as FX’s YOU'RE THE WORST, CMT’s STILL THE KING, Comedy Central’s BIG TIME IN HOLLYWOOD, FL, and four seasons on Comedy Central’s DRUNK HISTORY, which earned him the American Cinematographers (ASC) Award for Outstanding Achievement in Cinematography for Half-Hour Episodic Series in 2014.
Blake’s recent credits include a feature starring Taran Killam & Arnold Schwarzenegger titled KILLING GUNTHER, and a new series for NBC titled AP BIO (produced by Lorne Michaels and Broadway Video). He is currently in his second year with SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE as part of their “Film Unit,” shooting shorts for their weekly live broadcast.
