Braden Dereniwski – Cinematographer & Editor

Braden Dereniwski is an adaptive multidisciplinary filmmaker whose hard working attitude and calm personality make him a valuable asset as part of a team. Having been brought up in the rural Canadian farming lifestyle he understands nothing is achieved easily or on your own, you’re only as good as those around you and that repetition is key in honing your craft.

Being introduced to the arts at a young age, his father built and designed sets for a local theatre, which was an introduction to life and the craftsmanship within a production. Free time was spent alongside his family working, building and fixing what ever came to mind. Having no TV while growing up, he watched countless movies which sparked his love for film and desire to learn more about the process. All the while wondering the countryside enjoying what natures beauty had to offer. During his upbringing he pursued music, which then turned to film while he was in post-secondary school. Braden joined the team at DDG in 2015.

His experience ranges from documentary, live music and sports production, commercial, corporate, as well as numerous hours spent on various film sets.

Braden’s vision is to portray real people’s trials and tribulations while reflecting the story through their eyes in a visually cinematic way, while surrounding himself with like-minded great people dedicated to creating meaningful stories.
