T.A. Manchester Writer - Director - Cinematographer
Manchester grew up telling stories, inventing imaginary worlds, and seeking ways to pass the time with characters of his creation.
Through school, he found an outlet in creative writing, which quickly became a way to champion the make-believe days, transforming those subjects into literary pieces.
In high school, film became a realization as the time, tools, and talent made themselves available, and the words written became visual representations of the creative mind. Today, Manchester continues to pen fictional work, while accomplishing his goals in directing.
Manchester is a detail-oriented filmmaker accomplished in independent motion pictures, and two time winner of an Audience Choice Award for two short films, currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree of Fine Arts in Digital Film and Video Production at the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago, IL.
Manchester is very passionate about every production he takes on. Through the years, he has seen his technical and creative skills, as well as the desire to create strong visuals, and impact audiences emotionally, grow and evolve.
In studies at the Illinois Institute of Art, he has had the privilege to learn from Emmy and Academy Award winning professors. Through schooling and extracurricular experience, Manchester has learned how to effectively tell a captivating story that evokes the purist of emotions, in the most efficient way possible, by executing precise shots with rich cinematography.
He looks forward to every opportunity that he is able to collaborate with other creative individuals.
