In this episode I talk to Emmy Award wining filmmaker Steve Chollet about his adventures in making films, working with world known brands, travel, inspiration, and process. Everyone will find something to take away from this interview. So much was covered in this interview that we broke it into two interviews. Part two will be available on Monday!
Stephen Chollet is a two-time Emmy Award winning filmmaker living in Chico, California. For over a decade he has worked independently as a producer, director, cinematographer, editor and visual effects artist. Also working in design, photography, web and other audio-visual mediums, Stephen can handle a variety of projects. Born in Northern California, Stephen's work has taken him around the world - 6 continents to be exact. From the depths of the Egyptian pyramids to the Blue Mountains outside of Sydney, Australia...his work is as diverse as the locations and people encountered on these journeys.
Stephen works well alone or on a team. Whether you need him to handle an entire project from start-to-finish, or work a specific role in a larger production, Stephen has the experience and work ethic required to get it done well and on time.
Living just north of Sacramento, California - Stephen is well positioned for daily film and video projects in Sacramento, San Francisco / Bay Area, Redding, Chico, Central Valley and more. Stephen is an experienced traveller and can be available anywhere in the world with relatively short notice.
