Essentials: Stebs Schinnerer of Paper Fortress Films
FOUNDER OF PAPER FORTRESS FILMS
This week Essentials takes a peek into the fundamentals items for Paper Fortress Films founder Stebs Schinnerer. With a philosophy that everything in life can be turned into a work of art and a moniker of “I’ll try anything once,” Schinnerer has been able to pave his way to success working with some of the biggest names in the game including New Balance, Clarks Originals and Jack Daniels. Schinnerer’s interest in film started at an early age after making videos with friends as a child on his grandfather’s classic VHS camera. As Schinnerer got older, his interest grew as did his equipment and soon he was working for production companies in Boston and Vancouver. Eventually Schinnerer made the jump to start his own company which over time became Paper Fortress Films.
The main theme among Schinnerer’s Essentials collection is his range of photography and videography equipment including a Zacuto viewfinder, Glidecam HD 4000, and a Canon 7D. Other selections the Paper Fortress Films founder include Beats by Dre earphones, a Moleskin notebook, F-Stop Tilopa BC Backpack, and iPhone for working on the move and relaxation time is summed up perfectly with a bottle of Vietnamese cobra whiskey.
