Cinematographer, Southeast U.S.
Alexander Fox graduated from the Savannah College of Art & Design’s Film/ Video program in 1999, and has been working as a multidisciplinary creative – photographer, video director, graphic/web designer – in Charleston, SC ever since. In addition to documentary work, he has lensed commercial projects for clients as diverse as LeCreuset, Philips, Belmond/Orient Express, Crescom Bank, and the Golf Academy of America. In addition to agency and client-direct work, Alex created a DSLR video training program – 5D Film School – and published several eBooks on photo & video technique.
Charleston native, John Chitwood, was encouraged by his family to pursue his artistic talent early on. In 1988 he graduated from Ringling School of Art & Design, and returned to Charleston to forge a life as a successful graphic artist and member of the creative community. He has been a partner in two marketing agencies, and a website development firm, and has also worked for publishers and printers – affording him an extremely well rounded design pedigree.
In 2000 John opened Renaissart Graphic Design on upper King St. Sharing the studio with an architect and a photographer actually inspired the company name. It was truly a Renaissance environment. Renaissart Design has recently relocated to Mt Pleasant, where it continues to shares space with other creative businesses.
