Tim Kennedy’s passion for photography and cameras dates back to a young age. Seven years ago, he fulfilled a lifelong dream, moving his family to the Napa Valley and becoming part of this close-knit wine community. Napa Films was created in 2012, shooting and producing videos for many wineries, resorts, and restaurants. Storytelling through beautiful imagery is at the core of what he does, and Tim’s philosophy is to shoot footage for clients year-round, immersing viewers in the seasonal rhythms of the area and of winemaking. Napa Films has been honored with multiple Wine Spectator International Video Awards, including Finalist in 2017 for Shafer Vineyards as well as two Honorable Mentions that same year (a first in this tight competition), as well as an Honorable Mention in 2018. Working with professionals who are equally as obsessive about filmmaking, Studio 707 offers small to large scale commercial shoots, aerial drones, high-speed filming, time-lapse, graphic design, photography and more.
