Marty Hamrick knows a lot about filmmaking obscura. As a Freelance Videographer/Film Instructor, he began his career in TV as a child since his parents had a local TV show in Charleston, SC. At age 12, he started shooting home movies as a hobby with a Kodak Xl55. As a young man he started interning with various Florida TV stations and production companies including WTLV, WJCT, WJXT. Early work included employment at several theatre projection booths, Barton Film Company, Russell Film Labs, Joyous Lakes Productions and Communications 21.
At Florida Production Center he learned the basics of 16mm film production as well as video, which was just coming into use at the time. He experienced how the TV news industry and commercial productions switch from 16mm film to ENG and EFP. During this time he worked on commercials, industrials, corporate multi media presentations and TV news assignments.
After graduating high school, he went to work full time with Russell Film Labs as a negative cutter and Creative Services Assistant Manager. When the lab closed in 1980, he began freelancing on various projects and over the next 30 years, had his own production company. He worked full time for the various TV stations in Jacksonville as a photojournalist and Production and Special Projects Videographer.
Today Marty is semi retired, but freelances in the US and Canada at such places as Sun TV in Canada and Fora TV in the USA.
He teaches cinematography basics seasonally, for the New York Film Academy’s summer film camp in Celebration, Florida.
