Steve Moyer: Founder / Director

Steven Moyer's work in the film and television industry spans over 20 years. In 1997 he graduated from The Florida State University with degrees in Fine Art and Business as well as an MFA from the School of Motion Picture and Television Production.

After moving to New York City, he worked his way up the ranks from set electrician to gaffer and from cinematographer to director. Through this formative time in the lighting and camera departments, along with hours of experimentation in the edit and color rooms, Moyer developed a strong sense of visual storytelling and a reputation for drawing the most out of every project.  

In 2007, Moyer gathered a collective of hungry filmmakers and founded The Arsenal Film & Creative in New York City. This “Arsenal” of creators applied years of filmmaking artistry and craftsmanship to emerging digital editing and camera technologies. Having the entire creative process in one location allowed Moyer and his team to create stunning commercials, promos, and digital content that helped reshape the way network promotions were shot.

Moyer’s well-rounded background organically led him to directing, and he soon found himself traveling the world shooting television promos and commercials, gathering numerous awards along the way. He continues to work, develop and collaborate with peers as both cinematographer and director.

Some of his notable clients include Discovery Networks, AETN, DirecTV, DISH, Geico, Ford, and Toyota.
