Bradley J. Stuckel
The first bank loan I ever took out was for a Sony PD-150 Camcorder which put me back a whopping $180 per month. This was a big moment in life, and a big step for a college freshman. After 6 years in a muddled existence of post secondary education and a few years of just trying things out (shooting news, sports), I started work as a freelancer in the film industry. I got my feet wet in lighting & grip for projects such as The Bourne Ultimatum, and Hell on Wheels.. During this time I would shoot short films and independent features on the side in my spare time. I slowly started shifting my career into some commercials and more narrative projects.
My true motivation in pursuing film has always been focused on helping shape culture through story, honestly. I believe that film serves an important role in shaping the future of humanity by offering viewers an opportunity to more diversely experience the world through a lens which can portray a vast variety of both human perspectives and experiences. Through the use of lighting & shadows, colour & tone, and space & movement I aim to employ my techniques to create an emotionally charged visual stage to place the art within a story. It’s not about what it looks like, but what it feels like!
I currently live in Vancouver.
