John and Caitlin
We’ve said a lot about what we do on the various pages of this site and you might be wondering, “Who are these people?”
Well, we don’t really like talking about ourselves but, because we insisted on having a website and we’d like to potentially work with whomever you are reading this, we’ll give a brief introduction.
John & Caitlin Heath met studying telecommunications and video production at the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications. We bonded over chronic film addictions and after discovering we liked working together in class, we discovered we liked each other quite a bit as well (We’re married now and have a beautiful kid).
Together, we’ve always strived to bring a cinematic touch to our work – beautiful cinematography, purposeful storytelling, emotional engagement. It’s what we care about and part of who we are. If we can share that with you to your benefit, we think that’d be just swell.
John has been playing around with video cameras and video editing ever since his days in short pants. Probably over 20 years now that he thinks about it. It started as a way to goof around with friends and create short videos to share with family. Sometime in college, after giving up on English Literature and the BFA acting program, he got tired of giving things up and decided to make it a career.
Caitlin has always loved storytelling. It started with reading and writing (she thought her dream job was to become an author). She watched some films that really impacted her, and the rest is history. She was able to gain experience early on through high school video production classes and on-the-job training as a film production intern. Caitlin’s favorite part about her work is meeting people from every walk of life through all the different kinds of projects Five Seven Film produces.
