Hunter won his first digital camera in a raffle and from there he started experimenting with short films at his church in Streator, IL. In high school he was fired from his mascot position because of a film he made. It went all over the Chicago news and prompted Hunter to consider a full time career in the movie business. He then turned toward crafting a controversial true crime documentary called The Starved Rock Murders. This project made appearances with Nancy Grace and several other podcasts/radio stations. After graduating from Columbia College Chicago in 2014, he moved to Los Angeles. Hunter put out several successful shorts, The Guitar, and One Thousand Cranes, whereupon he snagged awards from the festival circuit all across the United States. He is a member of the DGA working as a 2nd assistant director and also a member of IATSE Local 80 in crafts service. Hunter’s true passion remains behind the lens and is hopeful to continue his dream of directing.
