Derek Mindler studied film at Bucks County Community College. It was here that he and a tight knit group of friends wrote, filmed, and screened the college’s first feature length student film in over thirty years. Derek earned a Bachelors Degree in Film/Television Production from St. John’s University. His first festival short film, Frequency, was nominated for Best Cinematography at the 2013 Philadelphia Film and Animation Festival’s 21 Day Competition.
Since then, Derek continues to impress the film industry by camera operating and successfully directing photography and in projects all over Eastern United states. His artistic vision and eye for detail make him an invaluable asset in everything from sweeping nature shots to busy cityscapes.
