Spotlight on Aristotle Lim, Broadcast Video and Systems Engineer
Here at Imagecraft we take pride in our crew members. When we are asked to crew a show we hand select from our list of dedicated professionals and choose those who we know we can rely on to give our clients the best possible shoot.
Aristotle is no exception. He’s been working with Imagecraft for 5 years as a freelance engineer. His Technical and Engineering background is gained from over 2 decades of Live Sports Broadcast Entertainment and reality. At 18, he started with the Imagineering Dept. at Disney Burbank testing software and product development. At 19, he joined John Warren Studios building and prepping sets for shows. After a year, he headed back down to Burbank and started his engineering career and never looked back.
“My passion for the industry grew as the years passed on – determined to master the craft.”
