As Seen on The Knot


I'm Thomas, the guy behind Character D Films.

A life-long passion for visual creativity is the bedrock for my work.  I cannot remember a time when movies didn't seem like the greatest way to shape a beautiful story.  Now I shape those stories every day, and they're some of the most gorgeous love stories I've ever had the pleasure of capturing.

I developed the language of video as a boy--one who was enchanted by film and the power of emotion that it wielded.  I honed the ability to speak that language at the Communication division of the University of Wisconsin--Stevens Point.  After expanding that language at the Peck School of the Arts in Milwaukee, I dove into the realm of wedding cinematography, and I've never looked back!

I would love to chat with you about your dream wedding film, coverage for your next big event, that promo for your business you've been needing, argue about Game of Thrones, or exchange Whiskey Smash recipes!  You can quickly and easily reach me on our Contact page.

Cheers for now,
