Bryan Bakker cv

Director | Editor | Project Manager

PERFORMANCE SUMMARY

I have seventeen years experience as an on-site director and project manager with a specialization in post-production effects, graphic design, storytelling and creative editing; a true passion for the lives of those I interview and translate to the screen. I take pride in creating a fun yet professional work environment free of judgement allowing our interviewees or actors to relax and speak from the heart. I’m a huge believer in the need for video to tell a story to hold audience’s attention; in short informing while entertaining.
