Director/DP Justin Shipley brings both unique storytelling and tabletop to the TPSC roster
The Traveling Picture Show Company welcomes director/DP Justin Shipley for exclusive representation. This Philly based talent brings to the roster a self-sufficient approach to the business. He is a certified Phantom technician, certified SHOTOVER aerial cinematographer, and expert in large format digital cameras and MöVI camera stabilization. Shipley is truly a one-man band.
Shipley is a highly regarded young talent who recently wrapped his first national commercial for Reebok, titled ‘Gauntlet’. His passion and distinct eye for composition are major reasons why he’s worked around the globe with brands such as Tanzania Tourism, Budweiser, and DirecTV. Justin's skill is derived from a career as a documentary Director/DP, earning him a nomination for an Emmy in Cinematography.
Ingenious and resourceful, Shipley is very quick and physical on set. “He puts the camera in the most bizarre and physically challenging places. He somehow finds a way to get incredibly dynamic shots,” explains EP John Noble. “Justin is a roll up your sleeves, get it done type of guy which jives incredibly well with everything we do here at TPSC. He’s a talent that I truly can’t wait to share. Agencies will love him.”
Whether Shipley is working on performance, high speed or tabletop, the feel is natural and the viewer is connected to the moment. “I have known about TPSC for quite some time and I know (Director/Partner) Chris Woods personally through flying circles,” explains Shipley. “I was fascinated. The mentality and goals established by the Partners, (EP) John Noble, and (Head of Sales) Dawn Clarke make me confident,” explains Shipley. “I constantly try to think outside the box, to show what others may not see, to never clamp down and to maximize every budget - making the end result the best for each client.”
