Ian Tucker was born and raised on the island of Bermuda. After attending Ontario College of Art and Design Ian returned to Bermuda to work for a small local production company. On most shoots, Ian was not only the grip and gaffer, but also the camera operator, make-up artist, wardrobe wrangler, editor and compositor. There he shot and edited numerous commercials, television shows and corporate videos, honing his shooting and editing skills. Since moving back to Toronto Ian has continued to work on a wide variety of projects and is constantly challenging himself by taking on work that sometimes test his limits. He has directed work for several companies around the city, including ADMG Communications, Aludra, Freedom Films, Heroic Film Company, Cuppa Coffee Studios. Even though Ian lives in the GTA, he has continued to direct projects for agencies in Bermuda, where the budgets are super low but he gets free trips to see his family. In 2008 Ian moved to The Studio Upstairs and in 2013 he became lead creative director for Varipix in Liberty Village. To date Ian has directed 30 commercials and a variety of show openings, film titles, music videos and several animated segments in a CBC show. On 95% of those projects he was also heavily involved in the post-production work. Ian is a well-rounded talent and he never loses sight of the big picture. He knows the technical side of the business but can still easily talk to clients in plain English.
