Andrew Freer | Director | Chicago, IL
I have worked on commercial productions since 2007. I live in Chicago, but frequently travel and have directed shoots in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Nashville, Minneapolis, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Boston, Washington DC, and other places as far as Tanzania. In addition to directing, I also produce and edit a lot of my own projects. I use Adobe Premiere and color grade in Davinci Resolve. When I first started working in production, I spent a lot of time in different departments on set from camera to lighting and grip to art to locations. There was also a lot of time spent on my knees putting down layout board in houses. This knowledge and experience helps me make better decisions when talking to my crew. I own a Sony F55 so I usually shoot on that, but a lot of my previous work was shot on the Sony FS700 with the Odyssey 7Q+ recorder.
I work on a wide variety of projects and budgets. I try to be collaborative, flexible and communicate often. Some of my clients include Walgreens, Marriott, Bridgestone, Netflix, Google, Facebook, Panasonic, Vonage, Johnson & Johnson, Blue Cross Blue Shield, H-E-B, Urbansitter, HouseLogic, World Poker Tour, Guerrero Howe and quite a few more.
If you have a project that you want to work on with me, I'd love to hear about it. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
