About Colby

The founder of ArtisTree Productions , Colby hails from small-town Grantville, GA. Growing up in the south U.S., he established himself as an artist on multiple mediums from drawing and painting to performing arts. It wasn't until he was 17 that he had a chance to write, produce, direct and star in a 5-act stage play in his hometown which ultimately led him to what he wanted to do with his life; filmmaking.

After the film industry in Georgia grew exponentially in the mid-2000's, Colby jumped on the bandwagon by taking Extra role after Extra role in order to get his foot in the door. An independent film called "The Fat Boy Chronicles" gave him the on-set experience he was looking for in 2009 and Colby was on fire.

Since "The Fat Boy Chronicles," Colby has crewed multiple big-budget films, directed and edited commercials for web and TV as well as written, directed, produced, and edited award-winning short films that have screened at festivals across the world.
