I am an experienced camera operator/cinematographer/editor/producer. When I get contracted to bring my camera crew (Be just me or a crew of 5) I think as a producer/camera operator and try to do my best to maximize results with the time and circumstances of each shoot. When I am finally shooting, I think like an editor/camera operator. I have over a dozen years of experience working as a camera operator and many years working as a video editor (Avid Media Composer, BorisFX). I offer local rates for camera crews in NYC and all around New England including Boston, MA. I am also available for international shoots.
I am experienced shooting television show sit-down camera interviews, corporate and industrial films, documentaries. I worked for many networks including CNN, CBS, ABC, PBS, Reuters, ARTEAR, SKY, BBC, Xterra Television, many others. My crew also brings a lot of years of experience. Our cameras are all broadcast quality (DCI 4K and HD) and we also can bring a teleprompter for scroll text or perform an Errol Morris style interview so your interviewee looks straight to the lens. We always bring our Blackmagic device so you can see through the lens/hear directly from the microphones even if you are on the other side of the planet! Regardless of distances, more and more clients are choosing to direct from the comfort of their offices using our dual camera set up with Zoom and other apps. I personally played the role of producer/camera operator on many occasions clients could not connect with us.
I am also a documentary director and video editor for short and feature film documentaries. In the past, I worked as a Cinematographer of several narrative films. Experienced traveling to several Continents shooting television documentaries.
Flexible rates, many equipment configurations available, ready to roll in New York and all of New England territory. Ready to travel internationally. HD and 4K. Cine lenses in all cameras, professional sound, lighting, and several years of experience/insurance. I am bilingual in Spanish and English. My assistant speaks five languages! Our mini van can carry equipment and crew. We only charge for parking expenses.
I have been in the industry since 2000.
Producer / Camera Operator – Promotional for Succession Link
We hired SN Media Services many times to shoot interviews and events. Sebastian and his team are exemplary, creative, thorough, punctual, easy to work with, well-equipped, experienced - with a great sense of humor. He is equally gifted with handheld, stationary and on track or slider. He provides two cameras and extra production staff is a crane is needed. His post-production follow up is excellent. We highly recommend him and would definitely call him first for any future projects.
SN Media Services did solid work for me on two different jobs, one in New York and another in rural CT. Very diligent and good to work with.
