Aaron "AC" Peer, Filmmaker & Musician 

I'm an editor, cinematographer and director; an artist and technician with 12 years production and post production experience.  

I'm also a musical recording artist and producer and have released several EPs and singles since starting as a solo pop/soul act in 2017. HuffPost called the debut release "sultry & soulful."

From 2007 to 2011 while earning my BA from Fordham University, I worked as an audio engineer and videographer at pioneering public radio station WFUV FM. Also while at Fordham, I directed and produced a narrative short film Poolside (2012) starring singer Lana Del Rey.  

In 2011 I started working with Brooklyn-based indie cinema post house Nice Dissolve. In collaboration with Nice Dissolve I media managed and did dailies for several feature productions, notably Spike Lee's Da Sweet Blood of Jesus (2014) and Chi-raq (2015) as well as It Comes at Night (2017) produced by A24 and directed by Trey Edward Shults for whom I assistant edited. 

In 2014 I was lucky to play drums with accomplished underground NYC band The Shivers on their record "Forever is A Word".

From 2017 through 2021 I edited a feature film Frank Miller - American Genius (2021)a documentary profiling the comics creator and director known for Sin City300 and creating the Dark Knight Batman character and comic. The film premiered at Roma Cinema Fest in October 2021 alongside two A24 features and Marvel Eternals. During that same period and through 2023, I shot and cut several narrative and branded shorts.

In 2022 & 2023 I recut two of my films produced ten years prior; Poolside (2012 & 2022) and Pilot Mo (2013 & 2023).

I grew up in New Jersey and live in Brooklyn. My father is a musician, my mother is a visual artist and my brother is both
