Hi everyone! I'm a newbie here and am looking to get a bit of feedback and expand my network.
Recently out of SVA's Social Documentary Film program (2011), I'm a documentary filmmaker based in NY. In the past few years, I've been working freelance as an associate producer, DP, and editor while I finish up my first documentary film, Kasmayaki.
My background is in photography, and I made the transition to video a few years back when I became decided to use my image-making skills to work on environmental projects. Since then, I've done photo and video work for groups like the Environmental Defense Fund, Al Gore's Climate Reality Project and the National Fish & Wildlife. A few months ago, I traveled to Nigeria to shoot a documentary called Street Girls. I really enjoy working as a DP with a director.
I recently cut a cinematography reel and would love your expert feedback!
Since I've only worked on tiny budget productions, I'm looking to expand my experience in shooting larger budget films. I'm interested in developing myself as a DP and am looking for opportunities where I can work on set as camera assistant. I'm professional, hardworking and committed to my craft - if there's anyone looking for an assistant, please get in touch! Or feel free just to say hello.
Looking forward to exploring this site and learning more from the forums, which I can already see are packed with useful information!
