I am a Film and Television Production graduate of Humber College (2016 – 2019), and an award-winning director with Dremilion Productions--my indie-film company. I am a cinematographer, filmmaker, screenwriter and visual story-teller. In my experience both in Humber College and as an independent filmmaker, I have operated, and artfully used the Canon EOS C700, Canon C200 and Sony FS100 film cameras. I understand the workflow of shooting both in LOG or Raw, choosing LUTs, and providing the colorist with properly exposed and calibrated footage for color grading on DaVinci Resolve. Moreover, I have operated both Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras for creative, commercial, and event photography, and doing all post and delivery work. As a cinematographer and grip on short films in Humber, I have employed the creative use of Arri tungsten light kits, HMI, Dedos, Gemini, and Kino Flo; rigging using scrims, nets, flags, gels, silks, grifflon and muslin bounce; and setting up for dolly, sticks, Steadicam, and handheld. I have lit feature films, short films, documentaries, experimental/poetic shorts, and live studio TV broadcasts.
My nost notable work is "Red Creek" 2018, which I wrote, directed and acted in. This film was shot entirely with green-screen under my technical and artistic direction. The backgrounds that I composited in were all 2D drawings that I drew myself by hand and animated using Adobe After Effects. The meticulous craft of directing the crew and actors, the technical challenge of the green-screen work, and the pain-stacking animation of the backgrounds eventually won Red Creek two Best Mystery Film awards in the LA Film Awards Festival, and the Toronto Alternative Film Festival.
I excel in all areas of video production and am especially keen on directing. I am the director who has the visual understanding of the subtext of a screenplay, and have the artistic ability to translate the written word into motion picture storytelling. I have superb storyboard drawing skills, that allow me to visually execute and communicate what I can vividly imagine in my head with others.
I have also done three notable 1st AD roles, where I have been in charge of productions shot in Humber, Cinespace and private locations. In these productions, I have taken on the full responsibility of dealing with large casts, complex shooting plans, tight shooting schedules, and logistics. Of course, my work as a 1st AD has always started from pre-production, where I have done script breakdowns, shooting scripts, shooting schedules, one-liners, transportation schedules, and call sheets.
