PHILOSOPHY OF FILMING AND WORKING WITH CUSTOMERS:

As a filmmaker, I pride myself in capturing more than just the event but capturing the emotion and soul of the event whether it be a personal film, a music video, or a documentary. For those customers who have an idea of what they are wanting with multiple cameras, angles, settings, lighting, effects, sound recording, and editing the final project. I work closely with my customers to develop an end product that works with the available budget. If you would like to discuss ideas, costs, and availability/scheduling, please contact me.
