My name is Sean Reardon; filmmaker, outdoor enthusiast, music hobbyist and dog lover. I’m originally from just north of Boston, (go Sox!) but have since made Brooklyn my home base.
My first experience in film was making an Oscar-worthy film called "Vampire Slayer" with my sister and cousins when I was five years old. Besides some early detours toward being an MLB player/firefighter/superhero, I knew from a very early age I wanted to pursue a career in film.
I graduated with a B.A In Documentary Studies & Production from Ithaca College’s Park School of Communications (ranked 16th in Hollywood Reporter’s Top Film Schools) along with a minor in International Politics in 2020.
I’ve taken a multidisciplinary approach to my work in production, sharpening my skills to be well-rounded in every stage of the process– from development and producing, all the way through post-production and delivery.
I revel in the collaboration, critical thinking, and storytelling puzzle of filmmaking.
In my work behind the camera, I always strive to capture the power of human emotion through the lens.
In my editing work, I constantly honed a unique style that blends an emphasis on rhythm with heavy influence from the Kino-Eye technique.
I have previously done work for several political and grassroots campaigns, brands like WHOOP, L’Oreal, and The ATP Tour, and have licensed my footage to National Geographic for inclusion in their Explorer Series.
