Hi, my name is Will Allen, I am a 24-year-old cinematographer located in Toledo Ohio. I have been working in the industry for 5 years and have experience with a wide variety of projects, cameras, and lighting equipment.

 

I have always loved the art of storytelling and grew up creating videos and taking pictures in any free time I could get. I started freelancing in college and combined my degree in media production with a minor in entrepreneurship because I wanted to provide the best value to my clients. Understanding business not only helped me grow as a person but also enabled me to provide insight into the heart of projects instead of just creating beautiful visuals. 

Thanks a lot for checking out my work. 

 

Kind Regards,

EXPERIENCE AND EDUCATION

A four-year bachelor of arts degree in Media Production from Bowling Green State University with a specialization in video production. This degree included specialized classes on marketing and media studies in addition to the many production classes.

It teaches you how to grow, recognize business trends and opportunities, and build up an entrepreneurial spirit. This is in addition to all of the basics of business, marketing, and cashflow. I took as many marketing classes as were offered within the minor and focused on how to build effective marketing strategies.
