His award-winning work includes commercials, branded content, documentaries, short films, music videos, recreations, and sometimes just really nice interviews (in fact, he’s lit over 3,000 interviews in his career).

Then he works with his team to determine the best crew, gear, and workflows to fit the client’s budget, maximize production value, and convey the most crucial story elements. Trent works with storytellers of all types; including creative directors, agency producers, broadcast producers, and production companies. On shoots, he loves fostering a positive collaborative atmosphere where everyone can feel inspired to work at their best.
