With over 20 years of experience in the field of visual communications, Boyd Anderson brings his creativity and eye for detail into every task he takes on. Zebra Media is Boyd's video production company and can provide solutions requiring pre-production, production, post-production and delivery. Offering his services to other production companies as a freelance camera operator is his most common task.

In addition to using handheld and traditional methods of video acquisition, one of Boyd's specialty is capturing emotionally engaging imagery using his highly specialized 'Polecam' camera / jib. Polecam, a lightweight and portable camera crane, allows for cinematic style camera moves in environments that may be too prohibitive for full size crane/jib equipment.

Over the years he has continued to produce a variety of work including short stories, commercials, event coverage and documentaries. As a freelance camera operator, he has been contracted to help on various projects for large and small production companies local and abroad, and has contributed content that has been aired on CNN, PBS, NBC, ABC, CBS and FOX.
