Filmmaker, writer, director, cinematographer and composer, David Dibble started developing his unique and often whimsical view of the world in the 7th grade when his parents bought a video camera in his hometown of Hanford, California. After learning the fundamentals at the University of Southern California’s renowned film school, he was taken under wing by legendary cinematographer Allen Daviau, A.S.C. (E.T., Empire of the Sun, Bugsy, Avalon). Daviau’s artistry and perfectionism guided David to hone his craft as a cinematographer on many of his own independent films and commercials as well as a variety of features, shorts, documentaries, music videos and commercials for companies such as Warner Bros., HP/Intel, and PBS.
David’s child-like view has charmed many audiences and has lead to awards and accolades. His short film “Adonis,” which played at the Breckenridge Film Festival in 2013, traveled the world to over 25 film festivals winning 9 awards, including the Best Emerging Short Film at the American Pavilion Emerging Filmmaker Showcase at Cannes, Directors’ Award for Best Short Film at the Sedona International Film Festival and Best Animation at the Big Bear Lake International Film Festival. Receiving distribution, “Adonis” is still being shown around the world. Recently, David has won gold ADDY awards from the American Advertising Federation for his Silverton commercials as well as his film festival trailers for Breckenridge and Durango.
Wearing many hats, David sets himself apart from others in the industry by being a true auteur. A David Dibble production showcases David’s distinct independent filmmaker style via his whimsical view of the world, quirky characters and his signature original soundtracks.
