A PASSION FOR IMAGES

 
 

written by  Marco Annunziata for  Freunde Von Freunden.

Vagabond Filmmaker Jason Baffa is always searching for the next adventure in the great outdoors. Growing up on a healthy dose of surfing most weeks as a youngster into his university years, today he has found a way to combine his passion for the surf and his talent with the camera. From the first moment he saw his cousin making a Super 8 movie ( Christopher Baffa, ASC ) he knew that he wanted to pursue a career in film. He began to develop his own filmic language that favored traditional analog techniques and a nostalgic form of storytelling. During this time Jason Baffa Films was born. Today, Jason works on a range of independent projects while also working as a commercial director.
