I specialize in motion image production and operate a virtual company that only materializes when required. I pride myself in working with respectful and attentive relationships to provide my clients a quality level of production, completed on time and on budget. Commercial, promotional, brand partnership, and online interactive cinematography is my business and my "Alexa" digital cinema camera package helps deliver my clients the absolute highest quality image acquisition and consistency.
But a great experience for my clients never starts with technology. It starts with a cohesive team approach; solid planning and budget control at the outset of a project, great communication during the project, and the ability to handle changes in progress with ease. Experience is everything, and my team is comprised of highly experienced freelance experts across every field. Your project is run like a business from beginning to end - ensuring you are delivered the best value for your dollar, every time.
I work as a creative problem solver focused on design and idea, and with every project I strive to innovate and bring something fresh to the table. Previous to working as a Director of Photography, I worked as a lighting technician for ten years in motion picture, movie of the week (MOW) and dramatic TV series and commercials. As such, my background has served me well by giving me the capacity to organize and manage large scale productions and logistics. Today, I use these skills to collaborate with directors, producers, and agencies to help them optimize their production goals and most importantly, realize their vision.
David Suddaby has been in the industry since 1995.
