My name is Austin Atencio and I am a Director of Photography and Camera Operator locally in Southern California. I got my Bachelors in business and marketing, and ended up creating my own business and staying with my passion of filmmaking. I have gotten very familiar with my role as a DP on commercial sets. From pre production, to location scouting and camera prep, then production to the final color and edit of the project, I have a very good understanding on how a project should flow. I have worked on many sized budgets and i know what roles are needed for any size project.
My strengths are with Sony and Canon cinema cameras, but I am proficient in Arri and RED as well. My journey in cinematography began in San Diego where I started freelancing for production studios. As the owner/operator of a Sony FS7, my work has consisted of commercial/corporate/TV series DP and camera op work for the last 10 years.
I am an asset on the pre-production process and coined the name "Mr. Plan B." because I seek the projects limitations to ensure the project stays on budget. On my website, atenciofilms.com(needs updates, but whos website doesnt?), you will find some of the work that I've been able to share, there are plenty more examples of my work I can share with a quick email, just ask and ill email you those links from other Social platforms and TV networks.
I have also filled these roles if needed:
-producer (build and manage a production teams)
Any questions, please just ask.
I have been in the industry since 2010.
