Cinematography or
Camera for Hire


In a production world that both demands high quality and low cost, a "one man band" shoot is a common affordable option. Award winning filmmaker and International Cinematographers Guild member, Andrew Friend, says it best. "As a filmmaker myself, I understand media creation from beginning to end, from budget and script to cinematography and post. I think like an editor as I am shooting."

End-to-End Video Packages


We offer customizable pre-production and production packages,  including concept planning, script and content development, coordination of location/talent/crew, reservations & releases, day rates for one to three HD camera operators with gear, green-screen features, and editing with or without original musical composition. 


Live Event Streaming


Witty Squid can stream your live event on YouTube or Facebook Live as a simple video feed, or with multiple cameras, graphics, and roll-in videos.
