Hi, I am a complete filmmaker with experience filming on real film 16mm, digital DSLR Cinema cameras like Red Epic, Canon 5D, Nikon Cinema cameras. I have over 20 years experience and have worked on almost every type of project. My work has traveled me across the globe. I am a Director and Director of Photography in film.
