Justin Banta Associate Producer Camera Op

  My name is Justin Banta. I have worked in video & television production professionally since I was 15 years old. I am now 33 years of age & have worked on a variety of projects & programs that have covered a vast array of topics & themes. I earned my degree from ASU in Production Management in 2007 while I also began freelancing in corporate video & sports production leading to a longtime working relationship with ESPN in which I was responsible for equipment transport & set-up and ran camera for multiple college sports. I eventually moved into reality television working in a variety of positions over the years. On smaller scale shows I often served a primary role in everything from lighting, sound, & camera to production planning, crew scheduling, & scene directing. I also spent 3 yrs at the local ABC affiliate working in studio production & editing promos with FCP. Across this spectrum I have had experience with a wide variety of camera models & am comfortable in almost any necessity on set whether in studio or in the field. Although I primarily reside in Scottsdale, AZ I also work locally in the surrounding areas as well as Las Vegas, NV & Los Angeles, CA.
