Sean Perrun is still relatively new to filmmaking. He’s been shooting video professionally for about 2 years, and went fully independent right out of college. Before college, Sean spend far too much time working in warehouses. After realizing that he wouldn’t get anything from this line of work besides a bad back, he decided to go to college and find a career. Now, Sean typically gets work freelancing for established media companies either operating a camera, editing, or assisting; and also from commercial clients around the city who have video needs.
