Ricky D. Payne
Born Sept 18,1980
It started with my mom (Angela Payne), always buying camcorders filming our Family get-togethers and my Youth Football Games.
Growing up I have always been a huge movie, cartoon & television series visual type person. I Love Good Drama, Comedy, Myths, Suspense, SyFy, Love, Historic & Religious types of Movies & TV Shows. Once I started Filming doing small projects, the Level of Creativity grew and as far as my range of film grew with me adding what experiences I already knew to different functions I've already attended. So I basically shaped it in knowing whats going to happen and know how to capture it besides B-Roll footage to add to the project. Its only certain Reality or Live TV types of Film you just have to be ready to Film to catch moments that aren't planned but be ready to record it.
Today 2020, Currently going through Covid 19, that desire and passion remains & I have been filming Professional now for 7yrs which include: Written Scripts, Storyboard, Managed Sets along with the Talent, Directing, Script Readings, Camera Operating Equipment (Gimbals, Cranes & Sliders), Lighting (Reflectors & Diffusers), Pro Sound (Boom & Wireless), Aerial (Drone Photography & Videography), and Post Production (Editing, Graphics & including Music). Knowing what Looks Good and making sure you're staying in line with the direction of the project is KEY. Keep Filming...
