My name is Colin and I make videos. I make them for TV, the computer, your phone, and the big screen.
My experience comes from working in commercial advertising making TV spots and web videos for clients big and small. I have been a part of every side of production starting out as an editor in my early days to them moving behind the camera and shooting as a cinematographer and director. For the better part of the last decade I’ve worked my way across the country with stops in LA, Ohio and now Washington, DC.
I wake up early, stay up late, and generally don’t sleep in the hopes to grab that perfect frame. I’m sure if I weren’t shooting film I’d be addicted to something else…but in my opinion this is just fine.
Style: My style comes from the ground up. A filmmaker born of the digital revolution I try and see what really need to tell our story. In many cases a well placed camera and a mic can go much further than a big crew with too much time spent in the makeup chair.
Tools: I remember in school the first time seeing an HD image and having to pick up my jaw from the floor. Now my phone shoots 4K so I’ll use anything really.
