About Me

Hey There,

I am going to try to attempt two things... 1) To make you laugh and 2) Assure you that I am a consummate, intelligent professional who can adapt to ever changing environments.

"I would love the opportunity to work with you guys! And it’s okay to say it out loud: 'I would love to hire this Brandon guy! See how it just rolls off the tip of your tongue? For the past 15 years I've produced, directed, shot and edited travel shows, realities, commercials, industrial's, training, web, surgery’s and films both domestic and foreign... meaning I know pressure and work well under it. I also have twenty kids and they all wanna eat. Their fate rests upon your shoulders. And only you have the key to their salvation. Would you say no to a child? Help me help them and let's stop their hunger... and world domination and terrorism and people who wear plaid and think it's cool, but if you wear plaid, it looks really great on you. (I also have super powers). So come on. Let's join forces and save the world one project at a time. And everybody knows that really hot girls dig superheroes who save the world. Or maybe it's because women know that super heroes wear tights, and that if they wear tights... they must really be in touch with their feminine side. I am afraid of men who wear tights, but I'd love to do a film about it. Not really, but that's beside the point. The point is about this project and the joining of forces. So let's do this and all be superheroes with a big'ol fan base"!

Hopefully the above made you laugh. It's often hard to stand out amongst the throngs of other applicants so thank you for indulging me while I shameless try to stand out. I am college educated, clock like reliable and beaming with confidence and positivity. I possess a thorough understanding of composition and multiple stylistic formats of shooting (ENG Run & Gun - Verite, Broadcast, Interview, Corporate, Commercial, Film, Sports, Event, etc) and can spot and or formulate compelling narrative and story arcs with ease (Stasis/Trigger/The Quest/Surprise/Critical Choice/Climax/Reversal/Resolution). Included in my bag of tricks are set dressing, multiple lighting/mood setups, audio setups, camera/talent positioning, blocking and scripting.

I am excellent under pressure - like Gordon Ramsay kitchen pressure, world traveled, well spoken and ridiculously easy to get along with. And because I've done so much traveling both domestic and foreign, it has afforded me many opportunities to come across many different types of personalities and characters. And being a life long and intuitive student of psychology, I have learned to not only navigate them, but to also build genuine trust, diffuse negativity, and promote high spirited camaraderie. Humor is key (and a little self-deprecation) as well as understanding that content is organic, it grows and thrives in the creative environment. 

This is not just a job for me, but rather a passionate career where I plan on spending the rest of my working life. And I'm also a polished editor with 4 editing bays, meaning I understand the end result of bad footage v good footage v excellent footage. We're all trying to make our way in this world the best way we can. And at the end of the day, I am a solid artistic DP/director that can run a set crew who wants to help you put your best foot forward and shine so you can get the next big project.

My website is a mess and getting a hold of my web-guy… I’ve just about given up. But you can see some of my work there for sure! Okay man, have a great day!

PS

I have lots of cool tech toys.

cheers!
