Griffin Hammond travels light, with an unobtrusive, run-and-gun filmmaking style that grants him better access as a documentary producer and speeds production. He’ll share the equipment he fits into a backpack, and techniques for lighting, audio and camera operation that he’s used on the presidential campaign trail and for projects around the world.
