About Martin

Telling stories that amplify time.

Creating immersive cinematic experiences that dance with audiences towards a cathartic end, so that, when the end credits roll, the viewer feels like they actually gained time* from an enhanced perspective on our shared reality, rather than having spent it (*the most valuable of currencies).

Collaborating with dedicated artists in the production of entertainment that will positively knock your socks off.

Unique traits: Ability to communicate direction clearly across departments so as to harmonize and focus the overall effort for maximum screen impact on the audience. Strengths include working with actors on performance, framing/composition/lighting (thanks to extensive camera op experience), as well as the creation of an atmosphere (both on set and on screen) that nurtures and amplifies the viewer's experience of the story told.
