At the age of 7, Collin Hardeman realized his fascination with cameras. That fascination would grow into a life long love and passion that would take him across the Country to some of the biggest events, and bring him face to face with some of the world’s most influential people!
“When I first started filming I literally had Hi-8 videocassette tapes scattered all over my room with old footage that I would watch over and over,” Hardeman said.
In fact, it wasn’t until he was hired by Apple Inc. in 2008 that he was introduced to video editing.
“It was as if I discovered the missing piece of the puzzle to my life! The ideas and visions I had in my head, I could now incorporate into my videos through the magic of video editing,” Hardeman said.
Shortly after, Collin began taking workshop classes at Channel Austin that taught him the basic fundamentals of video production. He practiced what he learned at C.A. and discovered new things through trial and error.
A self-taught videographer with a camera and a dream, he started his own production company in July of 2009 and as the old saying goes, “the rest is history”.
Amaz1n Entertainment Productions specializes in media coverage of small, medium, and large-scale events, and offers video and photography services for weddings, training, cooking, and music videos!
“The response has been overwhelming, and I never thought the company would grow as fast as it did! My dream is to be a Director of major motion pictures and I’ve now begun to pursue that dream,” Hardeman says.
Collin is currently enrolled at Austin Community College pursuing an Associates of Applied Science Degree (AAS) in Radio-Television-Film and Converging Media Production.
“I’m naturally a storyteller and I love sharing my ideas, thoughts, and vision with the world!
