Chris Elisara

FOUNDER & PRODUCER

I was a “free-range kid” growing up in New Zealand with a walking range of about 3 miles, a biking range of about 5 miles, and a bus range of about 15 miles to downtown. Today’s kids are as flightless as a Kiwi bird. Not cool!

JOHN PAGET:  DP / DIRECTOR / FOUNDER OF FIRST+MAIN FILMS

John Paget has worked as a documentary filmmaker and freelance director of photography since 1992. He has shot and directed several award-winning and nationally broadcast feature documentaries on iconic American topics including Route 66, Elvis Impersonators and Alcatraz Prison.

Paget’s exceptional storytelling instincts and craftsman-like approach to cinematography have put him in high demand as a freelance director of photography; he’s traveled worldwide to produce commissioned projects for international non-profits, TV networks, and Fortune 500 companies.

Originally from Olympia, Washington, Paget now lives in Buffalo, New York. He’s made several celebrated short films about Buffalo (This Place Matters, Buffalo: America’s Best Designed City) that have captured and helped catalyze the city’s revitalization.

Paget is the co-founder of First+Main Films, the creative studio dedicated to telling stories about cities, towns and neighborhoods through films that foster civic pride, build community and spark imagination.
