Hi my name is Alan Ledford.
I am a native of Detroit and recently returned to Michigan from Los Angeles CA after working at ZEFR/ Youtube and Fearless Records. I graduated from Grand Valley State University, with a BS in film and video production. I have worked professionally with various prestigious production companies including: ZEFR/ Movieclips, Fearless Records, Apple, Grand Valley Broadcasting, Doner advertising and freelance projects throughout Michigan, California, and New York. Currently working at Doner Advertising in Southfield, Michigan in production and commercial editing.
My professional interests include advertising and film and video production while ultimately pursuing my goal in independent productions. My expertise is in directing, camera operator/department, sound design and editing. I have been honored to have some of my previous work showcased in the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the Grand Rapids Art Museum. My recent directorial projects include “Playing with Matches” and the “Clark Retirement Community LipDub” and gained national exposure from Good Morning America, The Today Show, CBC, CNN, ABC, Tosh.O and various local and state news media organizations. Additional personal interests include illustration and art design.
I have worked on illustration projects for local LA artists and Michigan companies. I'm currently working on freelance illustration gigs and hope to one day publish my own children's stories.
I look forward to meeting and collaborating with other professionals and meeting interesting people to share and develop ideas with.
