JORDAN RIVERS CREATIVE
Cinematographer & Editor
I started Gecko Films out of a love for collaboration and as a way to pass on my knowledge to others starting out in the industry.
Like most of my occupations, I became a cinematographer by accident. I wanted to create films for myself as an actor and soon found there were ways to tell stories without even having actors on screen.
My first professional experience in the industry was shooting food for tourism commercials. It sounds boring but who new there were so many ways to shoot an egg!
My love for food videography soon moved to shooting gallery art pieces before it became something that even informed the way I wrote scripts and ultimately made films.
There's an art in commercial videography, just as there is in film cinematography and I love it :)
