Greg's passion for storytelling is what drew him towards filmmaking at the age of 20. He digs real people, real stories, and loves to pull the gritty truth out of them. He rarely goes anywhere without finding new people to listen to and looks for the story to be told.
Prior to forming Igniter Films with partner, Mark Aji, Greg was represented by several commercial production houses. He is known for clean, beautiful film, and finding natural, organic performances either with actors or real people. He has shot just about everything from national commercials to series and long form scripted spots.
His most recent work is a series called, Turning Point, which tells the stories of people whose lives have changed irrevocably due to one pivotal decision.
Over the years, Michael Slovis has played a critical role in prime-time television. He has directed and been the cinematographer for many popular shows, such as Breaking Bad, 30 Rock, Law & Order: SVU, Hell on Wheels, Ed, and CSI for which he won an Emmy for Director of Photography in 2006.
Slovis has made it his passion to create stories out of great frames and pictures. Often times, finding that aesthetic comes as a result of the limitations at hand. He enjoys the challenge and finding the beauty that lies beneath the surface.
Marty Patch is quickly gaining attention for his smart visuals and keen sense of timing. He comes from a very successful editing background that is evident in his directing approach and style.
In spite of being very particular about visuals and shots, he calls himself an actorsâ director and says casting is the most crucial part of his directing processâworking with actors is also what he enjoys the most about directing.
Tom Cartier adds pitch-perfect verisimilitude and subtle, but telling detail to every job he shoots. His unique, award-winning sensibility, first developed at Spike TV and refined while shooting for several Fortune 500 clients, has translated into a diverse, entertaining body of work.
Tom draws his inspiration from the written word. Ironically, though, his signature as a director is best achieved by discovering the unwritten nuances of a script and integrating these sometimes disparate elements into a unified whole.
His favorite projects allow for experimentation with narrative, performance, art direction and cinematic scale. Keen visual storytelling with a precise comedic edge best describes Tomâs style. A dynamic yet understated wit, he especially brings this perspective to dialogue-driven fare.
