FILMMAKER

Lee Bailes

Predominantly a writer and producer, working in the corporate arena by day, and guerilla filmmaking by night. Possessing a good practical and theoretical understanding of the entire low budget filmmaking process, who finds himself behind the camera occasionally. Someone who loves the process of collaborating with others in the process of filmmaking, but finds himself behind the camera when cinematographers don’t show up. Prefers to let other more talented artists help him achieve his vision and help other filmmakers achieve theirs.
