“Who is Hate This?” is a series where we spotlight each member of Hate This Films and highlight how they contribute to the team. Many of our members not only possess an odd, strange, and dangerous love for filmmaking, but they are also gifted with their own talents and ambitions for their respective careers. We hope that these vignettes put a little spotlight on those talents as well as aid you, the reader, in getting to know Hate This.
What about him?
Born and raised right here in Buffalo, NY, Brandon Peszko has a simple passion: video production. Often directing, shooting, and editing entire projects, Brandon finds the process of taking a vision and putting it on screen unique and satisfying. He keeps himself busy doing a lot of freelance work, filming mostly music videos and creating cinematic wedding videos. He also does freelance in television broadcasting, working as an audio mixer, an instant replay operator, and a camera operator.
What’s Hate got to do with it?
Brandon has worked with Hate This Films on shorts Everyone Knows One (Camera Operator), and Dinner (Assistant Director), as well as the Pentimento music video for Almost Atlantic (Grip). By working with Hate This, Brandon hopes to be a part of an impressive body of work the group puts together. According to Peszko, “Hate This is unique in that they are a proper production company located in Buffalo.” (We try to be anyway.) He hopes to help Hate This grow to become the place where clients go to fulfill all of their needs, whether in video, audio, computer animation, or graphics.
With a strong belief in always changing your goals and reaching for more, Brandon strives to continue to excel at his work, in hopes it will take him to more places and sights going forward.
