    Aaron Leong

    Owner of 4th Wall Productions

    Aaron Leong is the owner of 4th Wall Productions in Sacramento, California. He’s responsible for client relations, directing, cinematography, equipment rental, editing, and color correction. As a freelancer, he doesn’t have a typical workday. “One of the biggest challenges in the freelance world is creating a reputation for yourself. People have to know that you’re worth it, so with any job go above and beyond expectation to prove it’s beneficial to have you on set,” he says.

    Aaron has been in the industry for 13 years and describes himself as “committed” to the industry. He’s worked in theater and performance, as well as behind the camera in production. “The work is heavy at times and very light at times. Take what you can get and save for those rainy days.” Before studying at The Art Institute of California—Sacramento, Aaron earned a degree in theater arts from San Francisco State. He studied theater because he knew that he wanted to become a director. Adding in a degree in Digital Film & Video Production helped him to make that goal a reality. “I was hired to direct my first budget narrative feature film in 2015 and it has been an amazing experience.”

    Aaron, who in 2012 earned a Bachelor of Science in Digital Filmmaking & Video Production from The Art Institute of California—Sacramento, says that his education helped him to learn the fundamentals of video production work. It also taught him the technical aspects of video production. He recommends that current students be persistent and stick to their standards. “Take any and all jobs that come your way, adjusting your rate for the position. Not only are they great opportunities to learn from someone more experience, but they are always networking opportunities.”
