It all started…

After graduation of Advanced Filmmaking from Fanshawe College Darryl Ayles co-founded Orange Hat film Productions with Jamara Forbes. Since then it’s rare to see him without an orange hat on his head.

Darryl has a passion for cinematography, lighting, writing, and directing. He hopes to pursue a career in cinematography having such inspiration as Roger Deakins, Brandon Marsh, Benoît Debie, and Robert Richardson crafting the path for this generations wave of cinematographers.

After shooting majority of his projects on the Canon XA10, he hopes to venture into the medium of physical celluloid shooting on 16mm or Super 8mm film for his upcoming short projects.
