Hi there! I'm a Chicago based commercial DP. I'm located in Tri-Taylor near the United Center. The equipment I have for rent is the same kit I bring with me on every shoot. Lots of helpful time saving tools. I also have a ready to shoot Sony FX3 package. I'm always happy to answer any questions!

I started my company, Social Impact Films, under a different name on March 16th, 2009. Starting and managing a business of my own was harder than I could have ever imagined as a twenty-six year old creative. But here I am more than 10 years later, enjoying what I do and working with people that I admire. When it's all said and done I want my work to reflect the human spirit that makes us special. Stories of overcoming challenges, community-building, and elevating those that don't normally have a voice inspire me every day.

Robert Patrick Stern
Robert Patrick Stern. Cinematographer, producer, and self-proclaimed cinephile, Stern has dedicated his life to shooting professionally for over nine years. Photographing everything commercial (Chevy Blackhawks) to docu-series (HBO's THE SHOP, CNN's Chicagoland) has not satisfied his growing hunger for the visual medium. Translating multiple narratives into feature films has launched Robert onto solid ground, but the chase for a lifelong career in the industry has just begun. With this in mind, Robert launched The Line Film Company with fellow production designer Sarah Sharp. The two have also produced such features as Tony Wash's 'The Rake', Stephen Summers' 'The Glass House', and Adam Krause's viral sensation 'GAGS'. Robert also has found success on the festival circuit with the short film 'The Muck' which led him to SXSW ('14) and Jill Sixx's 'The Stylist' to Fantasia ('16) as well as Fantastic Fest ('16). Very promising upcoming projects include David Tolchinsky's 'Cassandra' and operating on A24's recent release 'SLICE'.
