HI, I'M JOE
My name is Joe Howes, and my obsession is art + technology. As a performer, filmmaker, technologist, and FAA (part 107) certified drone pilot, I bring creativity to tech, and tech to creativity through my production company, Folding Rain.
There's a new term being used in the video production industry: "Shreditor". A shreditor is a single person with a wide and deep production skillset. They have production-level expertise in lighting, shooting, operating, editing, animation, effects, soundtracking, coloring, encoding, finishing, and distributing.
For small, short-term projects, a single person production resource reduces costs, cuts time, and minimizes points of communication. The lowered costs and faster turnaround for short-term projects benefit both the customer and the producer.
Unbeknownst to me, I have operated as a shreditor on many projects through Folding Rain since 2002, but I also work well on crews of any size.
Whether you need complete production services for short-term projects, or need us as part of a larger, longer term project, we can turn around great looking work quickly and at a reasonable cost.
The core of Folding Rain is my beautiful wife Heather, and myself. She is an incredible singer, actor, burlesque star, and assistant aerial cinematographer.
While I perform most of our production tasks, Heather is an experienced production assistant and Visual Observer on aerial projects.
