About Me

Trent's speciality is creating high production value with light and nimble crews--whether for a feature, a doc-style branded content story, a social campaign, or a spot.

He has been on productions steadily through the COVID-19 pandemic and has worked out many of the kinks related to internet streaming, remote production, set safety, and crew curation.

As a Director and DP, Trent is highly adept at maintaining a focus on story and crafting cinematic visuals, even in adverse situations. He takes pride in crafting strong imagery that is relevant and true to the style of the production.

Above all, Trent believes in fostering a fun, collaborative, and safe environment, where talent and crew feel empowered to work at their best.

In addition to working as a Director and DP for hire, Trent also owns Watts Media Productions, a full-service production company that collaborates with brands, agencies, media outlets, and organizations on both production and post.

Gear includes: Arri Alexa Mini, RED Dragon, Zeiss CP2 Lenses, Gimbal, Monitors, Wireless Systems, Lighting.

Clients include: National Geographic, Showtime Boxing, HBO, Netflix, Microsoft, Amazon, Samsung, Wendy's, Under Armour, AARP, and hundreds more. See reel and work at trentwatts.com. 703-609-9490. trent@trentwatts.com
