Director of Photography, Editor, Musician
The low-budget film life is an incredibly hard, and yet immensely rewarding one. My name is Shaia, and I'm a 17 year old DP, Editor, and Musician. Being a low-budget filmmaker, I've devoted myself to become more well-rounded. From filming and editing, to sound design and VFX, to lighting and color, I've been working hard over the last eight years to learn it all. My dream is to eventually write and direct a feature, a dream shared by many on this site, I'm sure. I've had the incredible opportunity to work for a few local production agencies over the last few years, and was able to DP my first feature (titled "Whisper", releasing early 2017) this past summer. I'm on this site to learn as much as I can, as well as share what I've already learned with those who are just starting out.
