About Justan

Cinematographer. Filmmaker. Storyteller. 
I am honored to be Oklahoma's first local International Cinematographers Guild (IATSE Local 600) Director of Photography.

For 25 years, I have aimed my energy at creating, innovating, and nurturing Oklahoma’s film industry via my craft of cinematography and community development.
I am the creator and co-founder of the deadCENTER Film Festival, now in its 21st year. The festival has united our filmmakers and film lovers in a common voice with a $5.5 million economic impact for Oklahoma City and is a platform for the Oklahoma voice on a global stage.

Ackerman McQueen Advertising hired me as Sr.Cinematographer/VP to facilitate the creation of their very own, in-house video production and removed entirely the need for outside production.

As VP of Production and Sr. Cinematographer, I also set the visual style, directed content on set and off, and managed the production teams. I created content for every client on the Ackerman roster - from Winstar World Casino & Resort and the Chickasaw Nation to OG&E and the NRA.

I recently shot my first feature film as Director of Photography for “Second Chances” and feature documentary "Sherwood Forest: Top Secret" with Director Greg Mellot and Producer Gray Frederickson.
