“Dexter” follows Dexter Morgan, brilliantly played by Michael C Hall, as a Miami Metro Police Department blood spatter analyst who works to help the homicide division solve murders, yet also satisfies his dark desires by hunting and killing bad guys who slip through the justice system. The show has garnered innumerable accolades, including Emmy® Awards for Best Drama, and Golden Globes and Screen Actor Guild Awards for Hall.
Tirone joined the “Dexter” team on the first episode and continues to direct and shoot the series. He earned a 2008 Emmy nomination for his cinematography of the show. A successful and in-demand director of photography for music videos and commercials, Tirone also shoots and directs “True Blood,” as well as other shows.
Cioffi has been working on “Dexter” since 2007 and won the 2010 American Cinema Editors Eddie Award for the episode “Remain to be Seen.” Previously, Cioffi edited several independent films and while at MTV, edited various series and independent films, including the pilot to “Undressed” which allowed him the opportunity to work with the Oscar-nominated director Roland Joffe (“The Killing Fields,” “The Mission”).
