Landon Brands is a cinematographer, gaffer, and filmmaker based in Los Angeles and traveling worldwide. A broad variety of experience helps him to stay fresh and create consistently powerful work for people who seek to change the world.


At eight years old, Landon started experimenting with VHS camcorders and desktop publishing, with the childhood dream of working in broadcast news. That led to a homemade news show, shot and edited on MiniDV tape. At 14, Landon started shooting small films with his many theater friends, and handling the lighting design for plays. At 18, he directed and shot his first narrative short film, “The Perspective of Love,” which sold out its premiere, succeeded financially, and went on to DVD and festivals all over the nation. Continuing on from those days, Landon has made it his mission to tell stories that matter and construct meaningful images. With a well-rounded background in commercial and narrative filmmaking, broadcasting, design, technical theatre, and animation, he crafts visual stories that captivate the eye, engage the mind, and touch the heart. His Midwestern work ethic has earned him credits for hundreds of clients including Paramount Pictures, Google Fiber, Sonic, Medtronic, and opportunities to work with a growing list of noteworthy indivduals:

Carmelo Anthony
Sue Bryce
Zooey Deschanel
Andy Serkis
James Harden
Mayor Hawthorne
Marshmello
Jordan Smith
Chuck Swindoll

Landon is excited to help people, nonprofits, and companies tell stories that matter.

Hundreds of productions later, he continues his journey in Los Angeles, growing in his craft alongside the best craftspeople in the world.
