Jeff Shipman




           I am an American filmmaker and photographer.  I began my creative life as a trained watercolor painter, studying studio art and theater before directing my attention toward the moving image.  I spend my time producing and directing music videos, narrative films, advertising, and documentaries.  I have experienced the good fortune of having my work screened in the U.S. and internationally.  My photography has been featured in numerous publications and was used in the award winning documentary "20,000 Days on Earth".  I attended Georgia State University, graduating Cum Laude with a degree in Film and Video Production.
