PEOPLE CALL ME FRED
I’m a freelance Creative Director, Live Action Director, designer, compositor, 3D generalist, and colorist. I've worked at The Mill, Shilo, Synchrony, Mind Over Eye, Prime Negative, and Hype. I’ve taught classes in After Effects and C4D for FXPHD.
I started out as a 1st AC, 2nd unit DP, Gaffer, Key Grip, and DIT. I love filming practically and try to fit it into my VFX wherever possible. I'm a big proponent of the "just because you can doesn't mean you should" mindset of CG.
Story focused filmmaking is my jam.
I can fit into any role, and love to fill in the gaps. I've lead teams from the small boutique, to 30+ teams. I brew beer, screen print, make motion control rigs, and 3d print equipment.
I've worked on commercials, VR, AR, events, feature films, rides, and shorts.
I'm always filming something for work or for myself.
