About
I'm Justin Donais, a lifelong visual artist driven by a profound passion for lighting, and storytelling.
Through a seamless blend of stills and video, my creative journey is dedicated to sharing compelling narratives and captivating imagery that resonate deeply with audiences.
I firmly believe that the essence of a successful project lies in a holistic understanding
of the entire production process – from initial planning to the final edit.
In 2009, my debut documentary feature Film, "Glastonburykids," earned the honor of
being an official selection at the prestigious True/False Film Festival
before gaining wide spread Digital distribution.
With decades of hands-on experience both on set and
in post, I eagerly anticipate collaborating with you
to breathe life into your next creative vision.

Cinematography
With my on-set DP experience, I'm able to collaborate about the best way to capture each scene to get your desired look and feel. Beyond my passion for lighting, I deeply enjoy working together with our crew to ensure that everything is in place and the end result is a beautiful product that everyone is proud of.

Still Photos
Still frames can capture moments for a wider audience beyond motion picture. I enjoy using strobe lighting to really make images three dimensional, to engage viewers well before the editing process of crafting color.

Editing
Through a collaborative journey, you’ll experience the excitement of seeing your vision come to life. I utilize the latest cloud technology to keep a tight feedback loop so you can stay informed of all the new material, comments and modifications. This collaborative workflow allows projects to finish on time and on budget.

Color Correction
Color can subtextually tell so much of the story, while also elevating production value. It's all about getting the right look and feel for your project. This part of the process I deeply enjoy and is key to any project.

Motion Graphics
From animated typography to moving backgrounds, VFX and motion graphics can add depth and value to your project. Working in After Effects is where I enjoy creating magic.
