Movie Time with DGNL is back! This month we’re featuring Jonah Crespi, an Associate Producer on our team. His Top Pic is…. a Trilogy!

“I want to preface this by stating I personally don't have a favorite movie there are just too many incredible films out there to choose from but I'll throw a few out there.

My first pick is Lord of the Rings Trilogy, directed by Peter Jackson (I don’t care, I'm counting these as one movie). These movies are perfect. Every aspect of filmmaking comes together at the highest level in these movies. Storytelling, Cinematography, Score, etc... They are simply the best.”

Stay tuned for Jonah's other top picks coming up throughout the month.

And let us know, what's your favorite movie? Is it even possible to have just one?

Our Origin Story

Diagonal Media was founded by Blake Drummond in 2015. Blake started his career in media production working behind the scenes on shows like Q***r Eye for the Straight Guy, 30 Rock, and Ugly Betty. His skill and dedication allowed him to quickly work his way up to become the production coordinator on the hit show White Collar.

After 8 years of working in TV & Feature Film Production offices, Blake knew he needed to make a change. The vision of being a “creative” in the industry was slowly disappearing, so he decided to leave the logistics side of TV and Film and start his own path as a producer/cinematographer.

Blake spent years working on any filming job he could to hone and perfect his craft. It started with weddings and events, and transitioned into an opportunity to film a CEO presentation at an advertising holding company.

Blake’s experience as a production coordinator taught him the importance of professionalism, accountability, efficiency, and timeliness. These skills, and mindset, turned out to be the special sauce that would set him apart from others in the booming video industry. This job led to the next, and the next, until it got so busy that he needed help editing all of the content - so he reached out on a Final Cut Pro X user group looking for editors in NYC.
