My name is Douglas Koke, and Site07 has been my professional moniker since 2001.
I'm a multi-disciplinary freelance creative based in Victoria, BC, Canada with 13+ years experience in visual media and marketing. I specialize in imaginative, compelling story-telling, driven by breathtaking visuals coupled to a deep and profound sense of empathy.
I offer a host of creative services including cinematography, time-lapse photography, motion graphics, photography, video editing, color grading, and visual effects.
My mission is to partner with individuals, companies, and agencies to create memorable, engaging stories that entertain, provoke, and hopefully elevate their audiences.
I've been deeply engrossed in visual media and content creation since 1999, working as a freelance graphic artist, web contractor, and senior web designer. I spent 4 years residing as Creative Director for a national streaming media provider in Denver, Colorado. Since then, I've come full-circle to work as an independent, with a focus on film, video, motion design and time-lapse photography. I recently returned to Canada, to live and work on Vancouver Island.
As well as being an innovative, energetic cinematographer and camera operator, I'm also extremely proficient in Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro, and a host of other production applications, including Cinema 4D and Pro-Tools audio software.
I've worked in leadership and collaborative roles with clients as diverse as Focus On The Family to The Sex Pistols. My practical experience ranges from projects for small, local businesses to advertising for large-scale enterprises like HBO, V-Moda, and Clear Channel.
My approach to film-making and life is founded in honesty, a voracious work ethic, and personal integrity.
I find deep satisfaction in difficult, demanding work, and I take pride in paying the bills, but at the end of the day, my relationships and my humanity are my chief concerns, personally and professionally.
If that resonates with you, I'm your guy.
We have been in the industry since 2001.
