Videographer & Editor
Andrew Torbenson is a freelance cinematographer, filmmaker, and recent IU Media School graduate. Andrew’s passion for filmmaking started at his middle school video club. He spent most weekends creating films with his friends. Today, he is still constantly working on projects with his friends and trying to learn more about his craft. Andrew loves exploring new ways to tell stories, especially in marketing, and studies old film practices by collecting old 16mm film prints and utilizing old equipment in conjunction with modern camera technology.
On the rare occasion Andrew is doing something unrelated to film, you may find him playing guitar (poorly).
