Thanks for visiting Studioscopic.

Studioscopic has gone through so many changes in the last year, expanding our capabilities, growing and learning. For the last year Studioscopic has partnered with Here’s My Chance to produce some really innovative and stylistic viral videos for non-profits and entrepreneurs in the US and abroad. HMC has grown into a powerhouse for marketing, branding and messaging and media.

In the meantime Studioscopic continues to produce purely creative work as well. My own projects include the experimental documentary, Pines and a soon to be submitted to festivals short film that I shot in Iceland this last February.

Studioscopic has some other big projects in the works that I’m excited to share with you when the time is right.

If you found this site because you are looking for a DP, director, shooter, editor or other post production professional or entire crew, drop me a line and let’s discuss your project.

-David Kessler, President
