Growing up along the southern coast of Maine, David Camlin always knew he wanted to be involved, somehow, in making movies. That interest led him to Portland (the original, not Oregon) where he enjoyed the tight knit and creative community of artists, musicians and filmmakers. He spent his time producing and editing documentary movies and television series that were screened in local theaters and aired on Maine and New Hampshire’s public broadcasting networks. In addition to his independent work, he was contracted to produce and edit content for clients that included museums and art galleries, music producers and various broadcast networks. Since moving to Michigan in 2012, David has continued to develop and produce content connected to Maine while freelancing as a video editor and producer for Southeast Michigan film and video production companies.
