About Us

David Watts, Jr. has been behind the camera for virtually his whole life. He has been a freelance photographer since 1969 and a film Producer-Director-Writer-Cinematographer-Editor since 1972.

As a still photographer, David has done extensive work in photojournalism, editorial, commercial, and fine art photography primarily in black-and-white in a variety of formats, from 35-mm to 8" x 10".

As a Producer-Director-Writer-Cinematographer-Editor, David has worked in, primarily, 35-mm and 16-mm. He has made numerous locally based television commercials and industrial films of all types. In more recent years, he has begun to work more in documentary subjects, utilizing theatrical film techniques to recreate historical events, in digital video. He has extensive experience shooting in both the studio and on location.

In 1998, with co-producer Aidan Chisholm, David directed and co-produced the first of three recreations of classic radio dramas, a special edition of Mr. Chisholm's long-running "Echoes of an Era" series on WCAT: a Sixtieth Anniversary full cast recreation of the notorious Orson Welles and the Mercury Theatre of the Air broadcast of The War of the Worlds. The second "Echoes of an Era - Special Edition" production was a pair of Norman Corwin radio plays: Murder in Studio One and The Odyssey of Runyon Jones. The centerpiece of this program was an interview with then 89-year-old Norman Corwin. The trilogy of radio recreations was rounded out Christmas 2001 with Norman Corwin's “The Plot to Overthrow Christmas” on WJUL-FM and WCAT.
