Dennis Thomas is a film Director, Director of Photography, Editor, and Graphic Designer. In over 8 years in film, documentaries, music videos, and commercial work, Dennis has experience working nearly every position in nearly every genre.
With roots firmly planted in audio and music production, Dennis began his career with audio post and theatrical production. This led him to the film world working in the audio and grip departments, and secured his love of the collaborative efforts of film production. This would eventually give way to the photographic and visual side, working in fast paced and unpredictable documentary settings. Through this, he was able to study and absorb the subtle elements of movement and emotion, and apply them to cinematic narratives.
Dennis’ thorough experience in all aspects of post production processes (both audio and visual), has made his workflow as a director, cinematographer, and editor, highly efficient and effective. His complete understanding of the whole process, from the smallest details in pre-production, to highly technical operations during production, and on to a timely delivery of a finished product, allow for a meticulously prepared for and executed project. All the while with the highest concern for efficiency and quality.
Above all else, Dennis’ love, pride, and devotion to his craft and love of communal contribution is what motivates him to take on new challenges (personally and professionally) every day.
