I’m David Hildreth.

I live and work in Tempe, AZ with my wife Cora and daughter Lydia. I’ve always had a passion for documentary film making. I started my career in local TV, went on to film school and have been working full time in the industry since 2007.

In a world that lacks empathy I believe that helping people tell their story and share their experiences can serve to bring about change. Documentary film making is how I work to bring about that change.

As a documentarian and as part of post production team I’ve worked on projects both big and small. From an internal creative agency at a Fortune 500 company, to national advertising, an international eSports tournament, and feature length documentary projects sold worldwide. My work is diverse in scope and message.

In my free time I enjoy donating my time and skills to my church. Since summer 2014 I’ve been dedicating most of my efforts to co-directing Felled: A documentary film about bringing new life to fallen urban trees.
