My name is Rustin Dwyer, and I am a videographer and producer living in New York City.
For the past three years, I was the marketing lead for all video projects at a historic Pacific Northwest liberal arts university. This job gave me the opportunity to work directly with nearly every department at the university, developing and executing their stories in a timely, exciting and contemporary manner. My work took me across the globe and extended beyond technical video production. I was involved in integrating web and editorial content together to create functional and versatile multimedia storytelling.
Prior to that I was the staff videographer/content producer at The New York Botanical Garden for seven years. In that time, I initiated as well as developed the position of Video Production Specialist. Throughout my time there, I was responsible for conceiving, producing, and editing over 300 video pieces including in-gallery exhibition installations, artist documentaries and local news collaborations. I have been able to work with a variety of subjects including scientists, such as botanists and horticulturalists, and artists and celebrities like Martha Stewart, Neil Degrasse Tyson, Ray Villafane and Manolo Valdes.
Documenting everything from public programs to NYC Department of Environmental Affairs pieces has allowed me the opportunity to find creative and innovative ways of representing the institution, and honing in on my artistic and technological skills.
I have been in the industry since 2004.
