In 2004, director Aaron Schneider won an Academy Award for his short film Two Soldiers, based on a William Faulkner story. In his other life Schneider pays the bills as an award winning cinematographer, having worked extensively in television and on films such as Titanic (Second Unit DOP) and Kiss the Girls (DOP).
