A PASSION FOR IMAGES
Vagabond Filmmaker Jason Baffa is always searching for the next adventure in the great outdoors. Growing up on a healthy dose of surfing most weeks as a youngster into his university years, today he has found a way to combine his passion for the surf and his talent with the camera. From the first moment he saw his cousin making a Super 8 movie ( Christopher Baffa, ASC ) he knew that he wanted to pursue a career in film. He began to develop his own filmic language that favored traditional analog techniques and a nostalgic form of storytelling.
Baffa's work has been driven by strong imagery paired with uplifting themes about the human spirit. His ability to produce, write, direct, shoot & edit gives him a foundation of experience that perpetuates an ability to collaborate with every team member during all aspects of the creative process. Having directed spots for major brands with large crews and also director-d.p.'d his own grass-roots projects, Baffa is uniquely suited for all types of endeavors.
With experience not only in directing but also in building, marketing & self distributing three successful independent film-properties with ancillary merchandise licensing deals, (One California Day Merchandise, Bella Vita & Birdwell's, ZIOBAFFA organic wine) Baffa brings an intimate multi-platform knowledge to the table that allows him to communicate insightfully with clients.
