Founded in 2016, DF Media Productions is led by our President and company namesake, Derrick Fagan. As a freelance cinematographer, Derrick worked with numerous well-known clients and established himself early on as a talented documentarian and brand storyteller. This history and experience form the foundation of what DF Media is today.
Since then, our client list has grown to include several high-profile clients including government organizations and places of worship. We have diversified our role as a film production company to include talking heads, major events, multi-broadcasting tabletop videography and brand messaging.
As a collective, DF Media’s mission is to “tell the stories of voiceless souls”. In the last seven years, our knowledge and experience of modern filmmaking equipment and techniques continues to grow. Currently, we are rapidly expanding to support our growing number of clientele; and as we do, we remain true to our history as an innovative production house with a penchant for quality storytelling.
