JOEL SAN JUAN
Joel San Juan is a camera operator based in Asia who is always looking to find the heart of a script and help translate it into dynamic images that will drive the story for both the Director and Cinematographer. This has led to many fruitful collaborative efforts with both local and foreign production companies. Armed with a deep knowledge and practice of both Film and High Definition cameras, San Juan constantly strives to expand his repertoire in camera operating. He received tutelage under the legendary Garrett Brown and Jerry Holway in Los Angeles, introducing him to the world of the amazing tool: the Steadicam.
