Director Biography - David Austin Thompson

David Austin Thompson is founder of the boutique production/post-production studio Ojai Picture Company.

Our roots begin in the Ojai Valley, CA. During his time working in the film industry in and around Los Angeles, David called the town of Ojai his home for many years.

David has worked on a wide variety of content while wearing a variety of “hats” in the film industry (Visual Effects Artist, Film Editor, VFX Editor, Assistant Editor, Dailies Operator, Colorist)

David has worked on Marvel films (Black Panter, Venom 2, Ant-Man and the Wasp), Music Videos (Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, Travis Scott) and multiple Independent Features/Documentaries, to name a few. His IMDb page is here

After writing, producing and directing his short film “Long Distance” in 2019 (Link) and his feature film,“OJAI” in 2020 (Link), David began taking on multiple remote post-production jobs, and soon realized that he could work for Hollywood and his freelance clients while living literally anywhere in the country.

So, he chose Tennessee. He relocated to the foothills of the beautiful Appalachian Mountains in Johnson City, TN. The move not only brought David closer to his East Coast friends, family and industry connections, but it allowed for him to branch out from his hometown and share his expertise with an even greater clientele.

David and the team at Ojai Picture Company bring their expertise to creative projects both locally and around the globe.

Whether it’s your next film, commercial, music video or social media post, you’ve found your home at Ojai Picture Company.
