About Damien

Combining together a Television Broadcasting and Video Production Diploma (from Canadore College) with an Interactive Multimedia Post-Graduate Certificate (from Algonquin College), Damien Mustaphi brings a well-versed multimedia background with a strong passion in photography, music, video and artistic expression. He loves pushing the boundaries of technology, always looking for new ways to accomplish high profile strategies at a low-medium budget. "I'm a rare breed in the video production world. I see the final product during the initial brainstorming sessions with the client, director, and producer, before the script and storyboards are even created. I provide insight into what kinds of shots will work and how to adjust the shots that won't work. Having been on both the camera side and on editing/producer side of video production, I arrive on location, have started to edit the final product in my mind, making it much easier to set up and film each shot, as well as, suggest additional shots that may not be in the current storyboard. I am innovative and experienced with script writing, idea conceptualization, planning, scheduling, location/site checking, talent preparation, camera operating, directing, audio/video troubleshooting, file cataloguing and meta data creation, video editing, motion graphics, color correction, digital export settings for various platforms, and ftp transferring. I also possess still photography, web development, managerial, and off-set directing skills, which make me an essential and adaptive member to any production team. I am currently working in the educational field where I create various types of videos ranging from instructional/educational to promotional."

Unique traits: I am Scottish/East Indian but am often mistaken for Arabic, Italian, Mexican, Spanish, Greek, Egyptian, or Persian. I speak English fluently. I am able to do various accents and I'm willing to learn to learn scripts in other languages, if given the opportunity.
