MY EVERYDAY ROLES
Over the years I have developed a comprehensive video production system that takes you from brainstorming, through the production phase, and finally to the marketing and optimization of your finished product.
I believe that entertainment changes the world we live in. I know your project’s stakes are high, which is why I always use the best cameras, lenses and lighting to deliver spectacular images.
Through the power of creative editing and motion graphics, I’m helping marketing and communication teams spark change and action through creative, compelling visuals and focused messaging.
I specialize in commercial photography as well as corporate and entertainment creatively directed portraits. Through my images, I tell stories, and I share my passion for storytelling through visual media.
Want a drone? We have one, actually two! Here’s a trailer that showcases some sweet production skills as well as some nice flying by Chicago Aerial Videos, FAA Certified company.
On that note, Tomei Films is adding to the list of services a sweet UAV 4K package consisting of
4K DJI CAMERA,
SONY 17″ HD MONITOR,
HME COMMUNICATION SYSTEM,
UAS CAMERA OPERATOR,
We are now offering aerial video and photography, commercial and residential cinematography, sporting and live events coverage, life moments and anything else you can think of to use us for.
BUT I'M ALSO GOOD AT...
Am I a numbers geek for enjoying budgets like I do jigsaw puzzles? I use top-notch budgeting software to track every dollar from concept to big screen.
Writing is a lot like cooking. You bring me the concept, I add the nouns, the verbs, the dialogue, to braise, broil, and season your vision to life.
CAST & CREWING
Hitchcock said, “Actors are cattle”. I disagree. Casting a brilliant team and a good crew is one of the most important parts of building an incredible production.
Sound design is the perfect complement to incredible storytelling and filmmaking. I love bringing your ideas to life from the perfect soundtrack and effects through the final mix.
Motion graphics is the “cherry on the top”. Using After Effects and Nuke, I can inspire or simply entertain you with 2D, 3D animation and compositing.
