John D. LeMay CINEMATOGRAPHER/EDITOR/
Brenda LeMay PRODUCER/WRITER/LEGAL
Hi there! My name is Brenda LeMay. If John is the “right brain” of FEAT1STFILMS, then I'm its “left brain.” As producer, my primary job is to determine and handle all the logistics of getting your video completed on time, to your specifications, and within budget. If needed, I can also do research, write or help develop a story-line, scout and secure shooting locations, hire talent and craftspeople, and obtain any required permits or releases. An attorney for over 25 years, I am detail oriented but can still see the big picture, have strong organizational and people skills, and understand that communicating with a client means listening as well as talking. I look forward to working with you!

Dan Cummins: Burn It All Down Tour
John is the epitome of a pro! I hired him to capture Dan Cummins’ Burn It All Down show at The Egyptian in Boise, for our personal and professional use. When you have worked with top notch crews in major cities, you’re a bit skeptical of anyone who isn’t that. Well, I stand corrected! Fear not! From our initial contact until the next day delivery of the raw footage, John was a pro. The footage is breathtaking. I’m only sad I can’t take him with me everywhere Dan is performing. If you’re looking for a professional, talented, kind and hardworking cinematographer in the Boise area, or beyond, John should be your one and only choice!

"Napoleon Dynamite Live!"
"Do yourself a favor. Hire John LeMay and don't even waste your time with anyone else. The man is amazing! I hired John recently for a multiple camera theater production shoot, and John and his crew were fantastic in every possible way. John was so kind and creative, and delivered an amazing product. It may have exceeded my expectations. That always feels nice. Call John. He's the best!"

"As Development Director of Sage International School of Boise, I had the pleasure of working with John and Brenda LeMay. FEAT1STFILMS produced a series of short, fun fundraising videos for our school. John and Brenda took a genuine interest in learning all about our school and our ‘Mind the Gap’ fundraising approach which allowed our school’s unique culture and Mind the Gap messaging to shine through in the videos - they felt very personal and unique to Sage International. Our staff and students had a great time and the students particularly loved being ‘directed’ by John - he made them feel like movie stars. The professionally produced videos played the central role in our successful fundraising efforts this year and we will continue to use them in the future. Thank you so much FEAT1STFILMS - and John and Brenda."
