My name is Scott Hilburn, I am a passionate, focused, self-motivated, resourceful, kind, humble person & talented filmmaker who is relentless when it comes to doing whatever it takes to bring the vision to life! I love film and video because we get to put our minds together to create, bringing the image out of our heads to the screen which includes cooperation with so many people and factors in the formula! I like to say "Together We Are Stronger!"
I practice daily concentration, meditation, visualization, and positive thinking exercises that enable me to be focused, calm, centered, with a positive attitude. My goal on set is to bring the directors or clients vision to life and to the best that I possibly can. I choose to learn from every single project. I also do additional behind the scenes studying of Cinema photography, and Lighting to continually expand my knowledge. I am set out to master it. I also prepare for shoots by watching the clients previous videos, and studying the camera if its a camera I am not as familiar with.
I am on a mission to create inspirational films & videos that will stimulate & inspire people to tap into their full potential! I am committed to that goal and every video I make is a step towards that. I also do public speaking an teach classes on personal development at a non-profit school for adults.
My goal with video clients is to create videos that will aide them to a higher level to reach their next step of growth in sharing their talents with the world!
I work as a freelancer as Director of Photography and Camera Operator for Pranayama Productions 50% of the time, and the other 50% I freelance for other professional video production companies globally (which I love, appreciate and will always consider). Whether you need me on your crew, or need a whole production put together, I would love to discuss your project & video needs.
My greatest strengths are my level of discipline. I practice daily concentration, meditation, visualization, and positive thinking exercises that enable to be calm, focused, and productive on set while keeping a positive attitude and influence with the ability to learn from each moment to improve the project and my skills.
Film/video is my passion!!! I work great with people. I have leadership experience, and know how to follow direction.
Feel free to call or message anytime to connect further.
I look forward to connecting more!
