Thank you for considering AJ LODGE for YOUR PROJECT NAME, he is PLEASED.

Here's a show reel:

SHOW REEL COMING SOON

HOW EMBARRASSING

Now here's this thing:

AJ Lodge has directed many things and is very young for his age.

He comes with no concrete style or technique, no verifiable credits for major brands, and very few relationships with signed artists, influencers, or gods.

As a result, AJ sees every opportunity to direct as an opportunity to do something new for both the client and the production-- come in with fresh eyes, look for areas to innovate, experiment responsibly, and then build something unique upon the tried and true pillars of classic cinematic production or something like that, you know?

AJ's leadership shines brightest when shit just needs to get done. His breadth of production knowledge goes far beyond the director's chair as he's worked in the industry in nearly every capacity you can imagine: as a production assistant, camera operator, editor, actor, sound mixer, grip, DP-- both professionally and in his personal projects.  His ability to communicate effectively to everyone on set regardless of their position has put him into many "lead by example" situations that, as a result, have not only produced quality content, but have produced environments filled with quality collaboration. He's relatable!!!

As an artist, AJ has the same desire to do a little bit of everything. While his biggest and most successful endeavors have been in music videos, AJ has also directed everything from narrative horror to sketch comedy to videos titled "14 Craziest Donuts in Los Angeles!" for lifestyle YouTube brands. And uh, here are some of his most successful productions:
