The Digital Filmmaker mission

  • We write about video production gear because we depend on equipment for our real world documentary and corporate video shoots everyday.
  • We also post reviews and commentary about tech tools and useful gadgets for filmmakers and other creatives.
  • Everyone is invited to contribute a gear review, opinion piece, or a list of gear. Email us!

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. 

For us, gear is the cornerstone of what makes all this work possible.
