Brandon Li

Brandon’s  bio starts with “I’m a nomadic filmmaker on an endless world tour.” In addition to producing professional work for commercial clients including  MTV, BMW, Nike, Cathay Pacific, and Etihad Airways, he also has created personal work that has garnered millions of views on Youtube as well as started an online film school to teach others how to create personal or professional videos of their own. He studied film at University of North Carolina School of the Arts then worked as producer. He will be talking with us from Thailand.

Jim Talkington

ASMP Ohio Valley’s Jim Talkington will be hosting the talk with Brandon. Jim told us: “Brandon Li is my favorite travel filmmaker/editor and is a master of camera movement. His style is often copied but never duplicated. I’ve done my best to follow him since he was using early Sony mirrorless cameras to film an MTV reality show.”

Jim owns and operates Talkington Media, a strategy-first video production company in Cincinnati, Ohio. Before turning to video, Jim’s career spanned diverse specialties from large-format studio photography to capturing fast-paced motorsports action for international advertising and editorial clients. Talkington Media creates videos that help businesses and nonprofit organizations tell their stories with honesty and authenticity.

Ben Ko

ASMP Ohio Valley’s Ben Ko is the producer of this event and became a big fan of Brandon’s when he saw the amazing things Brandon was doing editing 360 video for 16×9 format. When he is not trying to make 360 shoot/edits of his own, he is making images and videos for clients. His work has been used by Fortune 100 companies such as Dell and Microsoft and has appeared everywhere from Times Square to The New York Times to the finish line area of the NYC Marathon.
