About

David Kalani Larkins
Director / Cinematographer / Futurist  / New Media Expert

As a working artist I travail to straddle the line between assignment work and my own personal work. With work in over 25 major cities domestic and abroad, my strength as an independent multimedia Director and Producer is in the diversity of projects and lead roles iv’e had the pleasure to take on. Whether it be a music artist, an NGO, or a global corporate brand, my mission is always the same; impactful, cinematic, engaging story telling and branding.

Clients and published work includes Universal Music, Interscope Records, CBS Sports, Vanity Fair, Beats By Dre, Diddy, Justin Bieber, Ripple, Nicaragua Tourism Bureau, Marriott, MTV, and many others. With exposure ranging from high end celebrity clients to small grassroots projects in the developing world, I offer a unique perspective to my clients and have become highly effective in understanding and reaching target demographics of all types to communicate brand messages and improve performance.

My background is former Air Force and GE Clinical Engineer turned Cinematographer, world traveler and story-seeker. I’m a rational optimist. My passion is tech, photography, philanthropy, and humanizing complex cultures through effective content creation.

In general, I like to mix mediums and create evermore immersive forms of storytelling. I believe that new perspectives into complex problems have a transformative effect on our personalities, leading us towards pragmatism and a higher tolerance for others.
