Editor // Assistant Director
Our team's cumulative experience means that we've confronted nearly every problem. It also means that we're able to execute any idea no matter how large or difficult.
We started out as a few film nerds attending Ohio State. Some of us came from medical backgrounds and a few of us came from engineering. We thought of film & video as a hobby, but we never fathomed that we could do videography for a living. We made some videos for fun here and there but it never amounted to anything too serious. At the end of our college run, we decided to give it a real try. "Let's make a short film," we thought. When else were we going to have the opportunity before we start our boring day jobs? For the next 8 months, we labored over our first short film Secouer (2019). We immediately garnered recognition and acclaim from festivals and film groups across the country. We were accepted into Sundance, given a few grants, and suddenly we were compelled to continue with videography. Still, we had our reservations about being successful in this field. When the pandemic hit, a handful of businesses reached out to us from word of mouth, asking us to make short-form content for them on social media. It was an honor for us as artists to help fledgling businesses during trying times. We didn't know it at the time, but this was the beginning for Cheap Films. Since then, we've had the pleasure of helping the smallest local coffee shops to the largest conglomerates like Kroger by making videos for them before tight deadlines and consistently under budget.
We use professional-grade cinema cameras with cine lenses, shotgun microphones, yada yada... If you really want to know what equipment we use, it's listed below. If we don't have something you need, we'll get it. Our main focus is to create the final product you want.
