Chase Gardiner is a cinematographer, sometimes photographer and editor based in Edmonton Alberta. It started about 10 years or so ago, Chase has always had a camera in hand shooting something, whether it be his friends action sport stunts or their new band. After graduation with a diploma in Media Arts he realized his passion was behind a camera and he began focusing his attention there. Over the past six years as a freelance cinematographer Chase has had the privilege of working on many local projects including short and feature length films, documentaries, commercials, series, corporate videos and music videos.
Through this experience Chase has had the privilege to work with many of the digital cinema cameras around today including RED, Blackmagic, Sony, Panasonic, Canon and GoPro. This knowledge and experience led him into teaching video production classes for the Film and Video Arts Society of Alberta (FAVA) in 2012. During his spare time Chase is an all around sports fan and can often be found hanging out with friends watching the game or out on the trails rollerblading with his dog, of course usually with camera in hand. On those kick back and relax days he’s usually sitting right behind his computer screen playing around in the graphic and print design world.
Chase has been involved in a number of short and feature length film projects including Thousand Yard Stare, Rock Paper Dice Enter, There by Grace, A Light in the Dark, Nightwing; Prodigal Son, Beginnings, What if, Family, iCUP, Tossers, Dream Girl, Ladies Night, The Gym, Arts Talk Online, Dookie Squad, Leviticus, Teenage Dance and many more, music videos for Habe, Stripes, JFR Band, The Apresnos and more, as well as commercial clients including The Brick, Grant MacEwan University, Mayfield Toyota, Sealy Canada, Dominion Sports Services, City of Edmonton Crime Prevention among others.
