Steve Oakley is an award winning videographer and has worked on many projects with Snap 180 Media including shoots for Good Morning America, Outdoor Channel, ESPN and others. Steve is not only a great shooter but also gets the sound you are looking for. He is also such a tech junkie that when he pulls up you just never know what new toys he will bring.
Steve brings over 20 years in television production experience to Snap 180 Media and we are happy to have him on board. Steve owns Practical Illusions and has been in the film and TV production business for over 25 years serving national level clients. On location, Steve works all over the world on a wide range of projects. These projects have ranged from huge concerts to documentaries shot in remote areas under demanding and difficult circumstances. He has worked in the Arizona Black Mesa desert without running water or electricity for a couple of weeks. That project won the 1998 Studio Film & Tape Grant as a documentary, and was shot on 16mm.
No matter how many fancy toys you have (together with Snap 180 Media, we have lots of fancy toys!), it requires both artistry and technical knowledge to deliver a project on time and on budget, no matter what.
Steve Oakley has demoed FCP for apple, combustion for discreet, and Boris RED for BorisFX at national trade shows like NAB and DV Expo. Steve's dedication has helped Snap 180 Media to get repeat customers who keep coming back because we are doing something they like.
