Gary Mazeffa, Producer
It all started with his father’s Argus C2 35 mm rangefinder camera. At the age of nine photography captured Gary’s imagination and began his lifelong fascination with the art and science of photography and filmmaking.
Gary had the fortune of experiencing and working within the dramatic changes from light-reactive chemicals to electronic photodetectors, from slides and transparencies, to terabytes of storage space and CG.
While pursuing a successful career in business outsourcing and ecommerce, Gary remains committed to the pursuit of capturing the essence of life through music videos, screenplays and still photography.
He is currently in an active role as film Producer and with the creation and development of Q2 Films.
