About Ian

I'm a cinematographer, doc filmmaker and founder of Hard Road Pictures, a small production company with a documentary focus. We produce independent documentaries and mini-docs for media outlets, non-profits, and commercial clients. Our recent projects include the production of a TIME 100 video featuring a New Orleans-based educator reflecting on education in New Orleans ten years after Katrina, and the documentary "Invisible Curriculum" which explores the global youth employment crisis. We work with small crews, typically 1-3 people, and are equipped with all the tools (Sony FS7, A7SII, pro audio) to capture stories beautifully.

We must stand together and continue to fight for environmental justice until our communities are made whole.
