PEOPLE CALL ME FRED
I’m a freelance Creative Director, Live Action Director, designer, compositor, 3D generalist, and colorist. I've worked on projects for 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 on the production side 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 of the filmmaking puzzle, and love to fill in the gaps. I've lead teams from the small boutique 3 people do everything, to large-scale 30+ teams. I brew beer, screen print, make motion control rigs, and 3d print props for shorts.
I've worked on commercials, VR, AR, events, feature films, rides, and shorts.
I'm always filming something for work of for the love of filmmaking.
