Story
Tagline
Dp Camera Operator
Introduction
Studied: UW  UCLA Masters degree and some years of Doc studies till I traded it in for Doco..

I grew up in a really small town in OR...and it wasn't like any movie about it..

I believe the big political divide of our times is really Urban and Rural..

Started shooting film, have shot with almost every(film,sd,hd,4k etc) camera out there. Cameras do not make the look of a film, set designers do.  Lighting  n movement of the camera seriously changes it.

Nothing can save a bad boring story.

My X wife once said, This would be a pretty good business if you weren't always buying stuff!!



Bragging rights
TJ Williams sr. Dp and or camera operator, on a number of projects see IMDB, most proud of my Dp work on both, "The Rights of All" documentary about Alaska Native Civil Rights, National PBS Air, (see the url below for the trailer) and Conservation Pathfinders another HD show for National PBS distribution. This doc tells us what needs to be done to protect wildlife, and how similiar the needs are in the US and in Africa. Sure I've won some prizes Emmies n Cine Eagle etc. So many years of working with and for such a bunch of wondeful interesting talented people, who wouldn't feel blessed.
