About Rudy

I’ve always been obsessed with creating through instruments, computers, and cameras. I’m equally comfortable working a specific role, or pioneering a full production. I have completed projects working as a director, dp, editor, and motion graphics artist. I look forward to bringing my passion to your story.

    Rudy did an incredible job for us on this shoot. Really captured to hear of the story. More impressively, the subject he filmed had great remarks about him as well. The subject is protective about her works and the kids she helps, but told me afterwards that Rudy was one of the best filmmakers she's worked with and really showed the care and understanding that's need to tell this story. I told the subject we were sending our best and we absolutely did!

    Rudy did a fantastic job and was a pleasure to work with. His videography was first-rate, and he was willing to give his artistic ‘two cents’ but was more than willing to listen to our direction as well. He’s aware of his surroundings and was sure to get shots that helped set the scene. He was also super conscious of listening to the interview and getting shots that accompanied the things we were saying. We would definitely work with him again.

    Rudy was an absolute pleasure to work with. He took a challenging project with limited time & resources & made it extraordinary. He was an excellent communicator from the very beginning of the assignment & everyone who worked with him was impressed by his skill, commitment to the project, and professionalism. I'd hire him again any day.
