David Ariew & Amanda Patterson

David Ariew started his career in neuroscience at UVA, mapping the brain of the common fruit fly, but quickly realized his passion lay elsewhere. Determined to become a visual effects wizard, David became involved in the local filmmaking scene of Charlottesville, VA, where he quickly rose in rank as one of the most coveted post-production freelancers. Since his career shift, David has worked on numerous high profile projects for Filament Productions, and continues to develop his mad skills while you and I are sleeping.
