About Us

T R A N S F E R S

Finding that there is a lack of support for affordable high resolution transfers, I began researching my own ways to do it. I shot a few short films and soon thereafter other filmmakers began approaching me wondering how I got my super 8 to look so good... 5 years have passed and with the support of other cinematographers, I created our little studio called Frame Discreet. Our custom super 8 and 16mm transfers have us trusted by archivists and filmmakers all across North America.

Our team of cinematographers (listed below) act as a collective, inspiring each other on and off set. We have a full range of experience working on features (Max Payne, The Hulk) to music videos (Hayden, Emily Haines), to Documentaries (CBC, YTV, MTV, Bravo!). Having our own gear and being able to supervise transfers in house allows us the freedom to create desireable 'film looks' at a much more affordable rate. In the end, we're trying to make it easier to collaborate, work with film and keep doin' what we love.

On Location- "GADFLY" Short Film




Another great project that we're pitching for funding. Collaborating with the super talented dance group Gadfly. The short delves into the minds of each dancer in their rehearsal space 30 floors up from the city core. Covers a mix of street dance, breaking, house, hip hop, and contemporary. Dance style changes are hidden by strongly motivated by camera movement and sound design. I love collaborating with dancers. The creative possibilities choreographing dance and camera movement together gets my heart thumpin'.
