Anh Nguyen grew up in a family filled with artistic people. From the day his father arrived in the United States, he has been in the priceless memory industry (i.e. he was a wedding cinematographer). His mother is a florist and his brother is a talented drawing artist. For him not to pick up an art would be unforgivable. Since 14, he follows his father to various wedding projects. The first time he went, his father tossed him a camera and barked a simple order: "Go shoot! Let's see what you can do!" He has been recording priceless memories ever since. He continued to work with his father to save enough money to buy a camera for himself. Now, instead of just focusing on weddings, he gets to take pictures of whatever strikes his fancy. The world is a fascinating playground for him and with his camera in hand, he is more than eager to shoot, save, and share these precious memories.
Johnny Tran has a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in International Business. In 2010, He has a deep passion and dedication to getting business done. With his knowledge and experience, he is able to effectively plan and coordinate multiple large projects/productions. For most of Load It Production's projects that he contributes to, Johnny likes to take the role of production manager and assistant director. He views production planning or event coordinating as an art form very similar to the creative aspect of film making. A production is a collective amount of information and tasks you must piece together. You start with a vision of the final product. Then you gather all the resources necessary to successfully complete a production. On the day of production, you are able to view your final product and appreciate the hard work that was required to get it done.
