So who's this guy?
David Van Hooser.
I'm the owner and director of LightHand Productions, LLC.
I have been a Storyteller for a long time. Actually, I can see now that a Storyteller is what I was L-O-N-G before I picked up a camera or put pen to paper.
That Storyteller gift naturally evolved into my becoming a video producer and writer and director. I've practiced and polished my art and craft at places like WSMV-TV, WKRN-TV, Pro-Kids Productions, and The Renaissance Center. During this fruitful time, I have been recognized with 24 Midsouth Region Emmy Awards, the Peabody Award, numerous Telly Awards, and the NATAS Silver Circle recognition for 25-plus years of creative production work. Eventually, that brought me to creating my own production group, LightHand Productions, LLC.
I have played important creative roles in producing historical documentaries, children's programs, life skills videos for teenagers, TV news promos, commercials, state park videos, marketing trailers, and more! I also love to tell stories through my screenwriting and short films. Recently some talented friends and I realized a long-held dream when we produced a suspense thriller feature film titled THE DEAD HALF. That film is in distribution. We recently completed an emotionally powerful short titled STILL LIFE. We're also nurturing the creation of a thriller titled HOMER'S ODDITIES.
And speaking of "fun", I wouldn't be doing this for such a long time if fun was not a part of it. And I wouldn't be doing this if God had not gifted me with the necessary abilities. That's what drives me with the desire to creatively tell YOUR story.
I look forward to hearing from you.
