Pictoclik’s mission is to unite filmmakers across the nation and “Connect one filmnation!” We want to keep our own creative resources confident in the idea that there is a place for a new supportive community in filmmaking. We would also like to play a role in bridging the gap between budding filmmakers and established industry professionals by providing a distribution outlet through our annual short film festival. This in turn will eventually bring more opportunities to unite artists to work with one another and keep the community productive and accessible.

David Bacon got his start in LA as an actor in his 20’s. After years of being on set as talent, he forged friendships with Directors and DPs. One in particular, an award winning Director of Photography and owner of “Light Hollywood” Tim Otholt, took David under his wing and taught him the ins and outs of production, camera and the lighting world. Through Mr. Otholt, David was able to work along side some very talented people in film & television commercials, never taking it for granted and learning all he could.
