An Online Life Portfolio

This is an online portfolio for me, James Loizou, a video producer and multi-media producer based out of Washington, DC. The website features a wide variety of projects and behind-the-scenes photos for some of my favorite professional and personal endeavors. Also, check out my blog where I guarantee no consistency of posts or humor. 

PROJECTS > PAPOU DOC

 

My grandfather, also named James Loizou, was born in Cairo and raised in Cyprus and to this day, continues to chant every Sunday at the Greek Orthodox church that he co-founded. Papou, a master of languages and dance, sat down with me for an interview in 2012. Editing his and Yiayia's story into a short-form documentary has been an on-going labor of love. 

 

This is a teaser for the upcoming documentary about Jim & Jane Loizou. This montage features shots from their home in McLean. Papou scores the trailer with one of his favorite Byzantine chants.

 

Ungraded Stills

Good friend and former colleague Ian Alexander Scott served as videographer on the unfinished project. He captured Papou, Yiayia and their home with a gentle attention to light and detail.
