Charles majored in Art and Film at The Art Institute of Seattle where he studied video production and landed several internships on local films.  After college he returned home to Tulsa where he started his career editing training and educational videos for childrens ministries. He excelled in his work and continued working in film production using 16mm film.

In 2001, Charles and an associate entered a contest held by Tommy Hilfiger to function as Directors and DPs for a 40 second commercial depicting their interpretation of the
spirit of Tommy Hilfiger and patriotism. They won runner up in the Tommy Hilfiger contest and received a $10,000 cash prize!

Charles left his editing job in 2003 and now works as a freelance editor and videographer. Since 2003 he has added several short films, music videos, local work, and
documentaries in Fiji and Haiti to his repertoire.

He directed his own feature-length film in 2009 that is in the audio post phase and will soon be ready for festival submission. He has worked to form a collective of editors, directors, and writers that meet on a regular basis to collaborate and shoot. Most recently, Charles works as a Creative Services Producer at his local NBC station.

Charles is very excited for HDSLR Boot Camp and is most looking forward to working side by side with an ASC cinematographer and learning more about the process and work
flow of cinematography as opposed to simply technical work. He is also VERY excited about “getting the opportunity to look at sweet prime lenses.” The Boot Camp will feature a variety of lenses: Roberto Schaefer, ASC is donating his Dalsa 4K Leica Primes; The Camera House is supplying Arri Ultra Primes; Richard from Zeiss will bring the Zeiss Compact Primes and Primo Primes will be there as well!

    Thanks for the writeup and thanks for picking me to attend. I’m really looking forward to getting a first hand experience with Shane and his Elite Team. If it’s anything like the insight offered on this site, I’m certainly in for an information OVERLOAD in a totally good way at the bootcamp. See you guys saturday.
