About me, Nick Teti; I started out in cinematography as a
video cameraman at Denver 8 television, while attending college
(for video, television and film production). I learned motion
picture production techniques starting in college; from cinematography/camera
operation, film transfer, telecine, film editing, syncing
sound, lighting, direction, video editing among other production
skills, in tandem while in television production; it was my
entire focus. After college graduation I shifted full time
to a news market as a photojournalist as an employee of Denver
2. I later moved over the years as an employee for ABC, another
Denver television station, later to Tribune broadcasting and
then for all the national networks as a freelancer.
After the news market and cable television production markets,
I began freelancing as a cameraman, as well a production person
for video, film and television crews across Colorado. For
production I have also been traveling to other states in countries
most of my career. As my camera work evolved from the the
video cameraman to film production and through the evolution
of video + many film cameras, I kept learning & applying
all the basics of lighting, grip, sound mixing/recording and
talent direction and learned several camera makes as they
evolved. From my first student film back in 1989 to modern
day 3p film cameras from Arri & Aaton, I have enjoyed
production for television spots, some smaller scale features,
and some documentary productions in film. As a cinematographer
I still occasionally shoot film for a spot, time lapse or
whatever else, but most modern production has moved to digital
cinematography (often also called digital video production
or other related production terminology).
Most of my camera technology as a DP/DOP is into HD video
cameras for production now days but I still operate film cameras
as well for specific clients preferring specific film stock;
although most HD cameras used in feature or other feature
or advertising production have several looks exacting film
gamma curves among other looks. My applied experience &
rental insurance to rent higher end cinema cameras or operate
provided resources is common, while I add the support production
equipment to complete your production puzzle. As well I provide
scalable camera crew resources where you need in Colorado.
Aside from the metro areas like Denver,
Colorado Springs & Fort Collins; I have covered the major
Rocky Mountain areas from Vail, Aspen, Summit County areas,
down to Telluride up to the top of Colorado; as well, border
to border in the state. I have worked many Colorado areas
aside from the rural areas, small towns, and Colorado's vast
geographies. I have also traveled as a cameraman providing
Dp/DoP services to clients across the globe. I am also well
versed in Spanish, able to travel central America to South
America, to other Spanish speaking counties. NTSC or PAL or
35mm, I have the camera resources as your go to camera guy
with the creativity + enthusiasm.
