Dylan Baillie is a working film director and cinematographer based out of Winnipeg, MB. Dylan got his start in 2009 when he began filming live concert videos for local musicians. Over the past 10 years Dylan has shot hundreds of live performances, several music videos & a variety of short films/documentaries.

Dylan embraces the “run and gun” style of shooting where the challenge becomes capturing engaging images while working with small crews and limited budgets. Dylan’s work has screened in places such as The Gimli Film Festival, The Winnipeg Underground Film Festival, and The Winnipeg Cinematheque.

Moving forward, Dylan intends to continue searching for new and innovative ways to express himself visually through the medium of film. Dylan has been working at the Winnipeg Film Group as full time staff since November, 2015. Dylan is also an avid film viewer, who makes a point of watching films from every decade and country in the world, attempting to gain a more fluid understanding of the language of cinema.
