Director. Editor. Storyteller.
My name is Brandon Hill. I was fortunate enough to discover my passion for filmmaking early on. In that time, I have done absolutely everything to get as much experience and learn as much as I can. Whether it be editing promotional videos for companies, getting hands-on experience on set, or doing visual effects work for professional productions, these experiences have taught me a great deal about the visual medium of film. I am currently attending Chapman University Dodge College with a major in Film Production.
I try to immerse myself in all aspects of filmmaking from screenwriting to sound mixing. It is my belief that before you direct someone on how to do their job, you should fully understand how that job is done. Seeing as how my main interest is directing, I have worked every position on set, from gripping to script supervising, in order to understand the roles and responsibilities of each crew member I direct on set. This way, I have empathy for the team around me, and I can bring everyone together to tell the story in the best way possible.
