Time is a property that can neither be stopped or restored.
It can however be captured through the lens of the camera, and the art of visual storytelling is where I demonstrate creativity and captured reality. My name is Alex Vo, and I have a passion for translating human emotion through captured moments of time.
I’ve had the pleasure of assisting small start-ups and Fortune 500 companies tell their stories. What excites me is taking the journey alongside my clients and reliving all that was captured in a culmination of memories. I truly believe everyone has a story to tell, I just help translate.
I seek to create a visceral feeling from captured movements. The best part about it, you just have to hit play to experience it.
Before presenting a great story, there needs to be a detailed plan. Like a blueprint is to architecture, the importance of pre-production to a successful shoot is crucial. Shot list, storyboards and a great script is the foundation to a great story. There is no such thing as over-planning.
It takes an army of talented individuals to come together and assist in telling a great story. It also takes a great producer to be able to see the talents in others and forming a crew and cast to execute the Director's vision. As a producer and director, the leader and guide will always be the story on set.
All images start with light. The quality, color and placement of a light instrument determines the emotion of the story. The motion of the camera and how it is lensed can do the same. When combined, the proper emotions are made visible and the story is revealed.
