Aloha, (see my story)
My name is John Lewis and I am based in Austin, TX. Thank you for considering me for your upcoming project! I am video/cinematically skilled and I’m truly a nice guy! Known by many as an over enthusiastic "team player". I have over 20 years of experience as a camera operator and a profound work ethic that was taught to me by my hard working parents!! I have served as a producer and cinematographer on the documentaries and reality shows in my profile.
My Story in a Nutshell:
I was living in Hawaii, where I owned a production company, producing and working on regional television shows, documentaries and commercials. One day, while sipping a very tall Mai Tai under a palm tree on a white sand beach, I had a profound calling. The voice said, “It’s time for you and your company to leave this island paradise, go out into the world and share your varied and brilliant video/cinematic skills with others.” I quickly heeded to the call and here I am, a video/cinematic expert based in a strange and rugged new land, Austin, Texas.
Upon arrival I was feeling a bit lonely, so I acquired a friend to keep me company, a brand new Sony FS-7 mark 2 Cinematic Camera. As much as we enjoy hanging out and working together we have agreed to an open relationship. We offer our services together as a package or just me and my expertise as a solo act, based on you / our clients’ needs. Thankfully she doesn’t consider me a cheater, knowing I have over twenty years of “hands on” experience with other cameras. My lighting and audio gear feel the same way, they know I can be at my very best with or without them! In fact, it’s easier to travel solo without my kitchen sink of production gear but we are all happy to travel together as well if needed.
I am excited about the possibility of making cinematic magic with you!
