Takashi Doscher
Director

Based in Los Angeles, Takashi Doscher is the youngest director to ever sell a film to ESPN, his work has been featured as a Vimeo Staff Pick, on the front pages of USAToday.com and MTV Hive, as well as on flights for Virgin Atlantic Air. He has written and directed a variety of projects including short films, commercials and music videos.

Takashi offers a visual storytelling style that often depicts the conflict between science and the human condition – a reflection of his educational background in Physics and English.  Sometimes he even shows the harmony between the two.  Either way he is clearly a perfect fit at BARK BARK and we are pleased to share his work with you.

Chris Hamilton
Director
Chris is an award-winning director and cinematographer currently living in Atlanta. Born in New York City and raised in smalltown Massachusetts, he experienced what he believes to be the best of both worlds, which is clearly reflected in his work. With an education in film from Hofstra University and extensive experience on a wide gamut of productions, Chris has retained his classical film training while always staying up-to-date with the latest advances in the technology and techniques of the cinematic arts. He combines the sharp storytelling mind of a director with the keen technical savvy and shooter’s eye of a cinematographer to create the highest quality product on any budget. He may be most proud, though, of his eclectic karaoke repertoire which he’s happy to put on display at the wrap party.
