Sean Salazar

Executive Producer

 

Sean has spent his lifetime studying the art of film and photography. At the age of 5 he began writing his own movies, moving on to begin filming the moment he got hold of an old 8mm film camera at 9. Video and photo have been his passion since then, and there has never been a question as to which direction his career would take. After receiving his BA in Radio, Television, and Film, he continued to study extensively to master all the newest technology, all the while working as a professional in his field. Through the years he honed his skills and creativity working on shows such as the award winning "In Wine Country" and "Best of the Bay." At this time Sean was also fortunate enough to work with some of the greatest the industry has to offer, working alongside masters such as Emmy award winning camera operator Ric Shiraki. Sean didn't just spend years in the TV and Film industry though - he never stopped increasing his resume with freelance work on the side. He worked on filming and editing countless weddings, events, commercials, corporate interviews, even educational classes for online universities. At the same time he was also taking on professional photography projects, including headshots for actors, fashion shots, magazine, architecture, product, and landscape - everything under the sun. Around this time he also began teaching videography, photography, lighting, and non-linear editing as a highly respected private instructor. He became a master of all aspects of both video and photo - professionally lighting sets, managing all aspects of audio (including live television), working behind every camera available, editing on Mac and PC, motion graphics, animation, special effects, professional photo retouching, color grading, screenwriting (including an award nominated feature film) and more. Loving the creative freedom that came with being his own producer, but still enjoying being in the thick of it behind both video and photo cameras, Sean eventually decided to go into business with Sunset Productions as the Executive Producer. With his experience and talent he leads the Sunset Productions on site team as well as the post production team.
