CONCEPT AND PRE-PRODUCTION

A wise man once said “Story is King” and we at Steller Sight and Sound live by this moto. Failing to plan is planning to fail, so we bring each project through a rigorous pre production to smooth our all the kinks and flaws.

Whether you bring an early idea to us to develop into a concept/screenplay or have a fully fleshed out story, we will help bring it to life before production with a solid plan and storyboards.

Jay Trusler

Jay Trusler, Director of Steller Sight and Sound, was born in Toronto, Ontario but moved with his family to Whistler, BC at a young age where he was raised with a deep-seated respect and love for the mountains alongside an absolute passion for story and film. After his dreams of becoming a professional snowboarder were impeded due to injuries, Jay turned his eye to the other side of the lens and developed an appetite for telling stories.

In 2009 Jay left his hometown to London, England where he received a B.A. in Digital Cinematography and Practical Filmmaking at the Met Film School. Since then Jay has work on a wide array of film projects including Directing, Numerous Narrative and Documentary Shorts, Commercials, Web Content, and a Feature Film.
Over the past several years Jay has been embedded in the action sports business working as a Director, Cinematographer, Editor and Colorist for the award winning action sports and commercial production company “Sherpas Cinema”.
In 2015 he started Steller Sight and Sound with the intention of creating an environment and business to continue telling diverse stories and develop into a full fledged feature film production company.
