Brad Watanabe is the creative director and lead cinematographer for Berad Studio.

With a growing digital landscape full of beautiful and brilliant daily content, it’s important for creators to be nimble, practical and professional.  Often wearing many hats, Brad has become a multitool of disciplines from creative direction and design to cinematography and producing.  Understanding and embracing these unique skillsets has allowed Brad to build a documentary narrative style we call Elevated Veritae. Brad’s passion is to capture the truest stories, in real time, with genuine people in authentic environments.
