About Me

LION EL ATON

I'm a multi-disciplined cinematographer, graphic designer, VFX artist and creative director currently residing in Houston.

 

 

My Work Has Been Featured On

BBC - GoPro - VICE - TIME - History Channel - National Geographic - Mashable - Wired - Huffington Post - Destination America - ABC News - Travel Channel - Outdoor

 

My work ranges from cinematography, directing, editing, motion graphics, VFX, graphic design, branding, art direction and photography. I've spent the last 12 years as an operations specialist in the U.S. Coast Guard doing search and rescue, but I've recently gotten out to focus on my creative work full-time.

 

Creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.

I'm entirely self-taught and self-motivated. This has allowed me to quickly learn and adopt new programs and tools as they become available. I even create my own resources and tools when they don't already exist to fit my needs.
