Here are a few of our friends in the local filmmaking community. This list includes freelance artists we've worked with, non-profit organizations promoting filmmakers, and production companies. Check back as we will update this page with more information in the future. iBtye Films supports local and independent artists, and we are proud to be a part of that creative community.
Bill Schweikert, DP
Mr. Schweikert, an accomplished cinematographer, travels the world creating beautiful moving images for broadcast television, commercials, and feature films. Two of the iByte Films team, Alex and Jennifer, have worked with Bill a few times, and both highly recommend him for your next project. Not only can he shoot your project, he brings along a wide array of gear to cover all your needs in one package. You can check out his impressive resume on IMDb (link here). Since you're here, go ahead see for yourself just how good he is by going to his Vimeo page below.
Amy's custom photography
Amy McMullen specializes in Behind-the-Scenes (BTS) stills for independent films. Many of the photos seen on our website come from her. Be sure to check out her Facebook page to see more, and if you are looking for the perfect photographer for your set, look no further. She is a "photo ninja", capturing all the perfect images without you even knowing she's there.
Tommy Wood, founder of Elev8ed Photos, brings great experience to our sets. He DP'ed our short film, "Silence", and worked with us on several other projects. As a licensed drone pilot, he provides great value to independent films, commercials, and documentaries. Hey, don't take our word for it. Check out his demo reels on Vimeo below.
