    About Zach B.

    Zach was born on a small,off-the-grid town in Oregon. He soon found his way to the hipster community of Portland then quickly on to Los Angeles where he cut his teeth in the film and photo industry with a gung-ho, pull yourself up by your bootstraps mentality. Working the camera for Under Armour, NFL, and La Victoria, Zach honed his Documentary/Lifestyle approach. His personal projects have garnered Vimeo Staff picks including the film, “Passion,” about Jack Passion, two time world beard champion. Zach’s devotion for telling stories is clear in his work, leading us through the lives and experiences of unique individuals. His adventurous spirit shines while holding a camera. From his love for food, surfing, motorcycles, to the great outdoors, Zach brings his personal experiences and unique point of view to every image he captures.

    About Vance M.

    Vance was born in the smallest town, in the smallest county, in the smallest state in the nation. He eventually left the expanses of Wyoming for a media degree in Portland, a city he would call home for the next decade, cutting his teeth in production with a gung-ho, pull yourself up by your bootstraps mentality. Working the camera for Nike, Adidas, Goodwill and regional clients, Vance honed his signature aesthetic, with performance at its bedrock. From there it was onto LA and larger narrative-based filmmaking. A slew of coups soon followed: a Clio for MTV’s “Permission,” a Cannes Lion for AdCouncil’s “Cheerleader,” and a Green Award of Excellence in Communication for directing Subaru. More recently his Sundance film, “The Poodle Trainer” received awards from AFI/Silverdocs, Cinema Eye, Worldwide Shortsfest, Gen Art and more before getting licensed by PBS. When he’s not tapping into universal cinematic themes, Vance can be found making artisanal homemade jerkies of all flavors or riding into remote sunsets on his motorcycle.

    About Ivy N.

    I'm a film student currently attending school at University of California, San Diego with a minor in Literature/Writing. I was born and raised in Saigon, Vietnam and currently based in Anaheim and San Diego. I got into filmmaking because I am both intrigued by the creative writing process and I have a deep passion for photography/cinematography. When I combined these two elements together, I realized that I could make something meaningful with it, and I decided to pursue this field. So far, I have written and directed two short student films as part of a production program called Triton Television, in which I am also a producer for. Although I am film student, I'm looking to build my experiences as an artist and as a person wanting to know more about the creative industry.

    I have worked as a cinematographer, editor, and producer in the action sports industry for 16 years. My goal is to create content that is not only visually stimulating, but that also brings out the emotion of the viewer and tells the whole story. I started off my career in the surf industry and over time it has blossomed into creating content for a wide range of acton sports. Mountain Biking, Surfing, Skating, FMX, Wake boarding, Snowboarding, Rally car, and MMA are not only sports I enjoy watching, but have been fortunate enough to have been able to shoot and produce fresh content diving deep into the lives of these professional athletes.

His celebrity clients are quite diverse & include: Jim Gaffigan, Cal Ripkin Jr. Ethan Hawke, President George H. Bush, President George W. Bush, Peyton Manning, Rick Ross, Nicole Kidman, Beyonce, Sir Elton John, Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton), Julian Assange, Shaun White, Sir George Martin, Carmello Anthony, James Earl Jones, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Tiffany, Norah Jones, Justin Timberlake, Tom Brokaw, Tony Hawk, Walter Cronkite, Dave Matthews, Ludacris, Juicy J & Kid President!

    About Rich U.

    I am a multi-hyphenate creator. First and foremost I am a commercial and documentary director/dp and interviewer based in San Diego, California (https://www.filmspot.tv - general reel and bio). I am also a contract creative director for the KellyCo Agency. In the commercial world I've created spots in the healthcare, education, tourism and home and garden categories. I also create a branded content documentary series of short films ("Cheyenne" https://vimeo.com/471547605 and "Anna" https://vimeo.com/298766201). Other projects and credits on IMDB (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3192747/?ref_=rvi_nm) I also teach Advanced Cinematography and Advanced Film Production courses at San Diego State University. I run the graduate program thesis projects as well. I've also taught at the Maine Media Workshops in Rockport, Maine. As an author, I wrote the highly acclaimed book “Roll!” published by Focal Press (https://www.amazon.com/Roll-Shooting-TV-News-Behind/dp/0240808487) and have several short scripts and a screenplay gathering dust. I also designed the “Birdcage Lantern” available from Chimera Lighting (https://chimeralighting.com/shop/?item=29224). During the pandemic I created a capabilities deck to show available backdrops and equipment for small shoots (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lLl_DFDkgizjZvcBImmRtWNrZiYFpThL/view?usp=sharing). When I'm not filming or talking about filming, I'm either out camping, traveling or working my small vineyard of Tempranillo (https://www.instagram.com/rich.underwood.501/) I gave up the motorcycle a year ago, still weighing whether that was a good idea or not.
