who Is Digital Filmmaker?

Digital Filmmaker is made up of freelance video producers and industry creatives who make a living from our gear. The site is edited by Slavik Boyechko, who produces for an Oregon video production company.

Over the last few years, we have produced, shot, and edited hundreds of documentaries for the web and television for PBS and station affiliates. We have also traveled around the country, conducting media training for video producers on the philosophies and tools behind contemporary video production.

Outside of documentary and news broadcast, we have produced promotional videos for many companies and organizations, from national corporations such as Princess Cruises and Mozilla, to local businesses in remote Alaska. 

We also have a few Emmys to show for a few of our projects. As well as millions of views for a variety of our past videos.

Not that any of that matters all that much.
