About Austin

Director, Cinematographer, and Co-founder of Hardcover Studios, a Seattle-based film production company. I am a filmmaker with over 10 years of experience and a background in documentary production. By working on documentaries, I have become a more adept videographer that is comfortable working in fast-paced environments and is accustomed to editing large amounts of footage into clear, concise videos that are always driven by emotional storytelling. My background in documentary film has given me years of experience in all aspects of film production. Whether your project requires simply operating a camera for a one-day event, or everything from pre-production to directing, cinematography, lighting, sound recording and editing, I am capable of meeting these demands while staying within your budget.
