"Tommy's passion for filmmaking shows on every production. His positive attitude and ability to read the room is key. He can wear many hats with a great variety of experience. Tommy understands how to support and lift every role on set."

"I wholeheartedly recommend Tommy Martin and his services to any Producer, Director, or Unit Production Manager in the film industry. I have had the pleasure and unique experience of growing as a filmmaker alongside Tommy and can attest to his perseverance and dedication to a project. When faced with the difficult task of creating my first sci-fi feature film, I needed to find the "right" individual whose mid-western tenacity was well-mixed with raw talent. Tommy was "my guy", and I am very grateful he took a chance on me. He literally jumped through countless hoops to fulfill our shooting schedule's demands in KY, IN, and IL. I look with fondness on his future career."

We have collaborated on two photo projects and he makes a great team member. During our shoots, he takes direction well and brings great ideas to the table. His positivity is infectious and I would work with him again without hesitation. "

Like many kids of the 80's, Tommy made several mixtapes and CD's, curating playlists as if he were a disc jockey. The CDs are in his Mom's garage and have incredibly clever titles such as Mix #1. His radio station mixtapes, created with the assistance of a Talkboy (yup, the toy from Home Alone 2) and voiced by then 8-year old radio announcer Tommy, are likely lost to history; perhaps for the best. 


Tommy began making improvised videos with his improv classmates for Second City's 7 Day Shorts Program, teaching himself how to make a two-minute short using a Flip camera and iMovie. He continued cumulating skills and learning how all the puzzle pieces of production fit together. He was motivated by prolific multi-hyphenates Jake Jarvi and Ronald Short, to name a few. Tommy has gone on to work as a writer, producer, director, assistant camera, assistant director, photographer, production designer. His projects have traveled to film festivals worldwide, earning numerous nominations and wins along the way.
