︎ At eight years old, Landon picked up a VHS camcorder. He was soon sitting in on local news broadcasts, and learning how to shoot and edit on MiniDV tape, long before the dawn of YouTube.

︎ In 2011, his first narrative short film, “The Perspective of Love,” sold out its premiere, succeeded financially, and went on to DVD and festivals all over the nation.

︎ In 2017, his original YouTube series “Both Sides” reached into the tens of millions of views and introduced the world to “Jake from State Farm” years before the famous ads.

︎ Having dedicated a decade to the craft on hundreds of sets and clients, he continues to hone his skills in Los Angeles alongside the best craftspeople in the world.

︎ Having visited 46 US states and 5 foreign countries, Landon is energized by illuminating purposeful images in the service of meaningful storytelling all over the globe.
