Meet Thom

Thom HoffmanI had the great fortune of having parents who owned an 8-millimeter movie camera and who documented my entire life on film. By the time I was a teenager I became the family projectionist, then archivist, then restoration specialist and finally filmmaker.

The development of my skills mirrored the history of the movies. I began shooting silent black and white film, synchronizing it with music and sound effects played on a reel-to-reel tape recorder. Later I moved into color, full sound, basic off-line video, and then digital technology. Working for decades without such technology, I was forced to compensate with creativity and innovation. Today, armed with the latest tools, I can create anything I can image; and my imagination grows more vivid each day. These are the capacities and passions that I choose the share with my clients.
