I am Alison Daye Himes, a videographer, editor and Atlanta native. I fell in love with music videos and movies as a child. I often found myself listening to music and visualizing images that would move with the beat. I wanted to see the music. Though I always knew I wanted to do something in the arts, it wasn’t until college that I connected with my dream of creating music videos.
I started shooting and editing concerts for a local music school in 2006 while earning my Bachelor’s Degree at Georgia State University. I soon expanded to dance performances, special events (from fundraisers to parties) and weddings. I found that I really enjoy creating highlights videos that feature the best captured moments of an event. I graduated with honors in 2008, and after a few years I decided that I wanted a name other than my own for my work. The name CineBot Video came out of my love for all things cinema and-you guessed it-robots.
In the fall of 2013, I was asked by a friend to document the build of a large astronaut puppet. This was the first time I got to see and capture a large scale puppet coming to life. After that, I was hooked on documenting the artistic process and showing the general public all the hard work and energy that gets poured into creating something.
I have been a videographer and editor for 10 years and I still love what I do. I have developed my own shooting and editing style, and I am always looking to improve and push myself to the next level. I couldn’t have made this journey on my own. I have been blessed with some amazing and talented friends who continue to help me along the way. Thanks to my family and everyone who has been there to make CineBot Video what it is today.
