Papert was bitten by the filmmaking bug as a teenager and after a brief stint at NYU film school, he began his career in earnest. Several years shooting and editing local commercials and corporate videos for a small production company was a great introduction to working fast and lean and producing surprising results. He became a well-known Steadicam operator in the New England market, then moved to Los Angeles in 1997 and began working primarily in features and episodic television, racking up an impressive set of credits first as operator, then DP.

In 2001 he co-created “Instant Films”, a 48-hour filmmaking festival which to date has generated over 200 films, all made over a weekend, Papert having directed 12 of these.

With his extensive experience in both the top of the industry and the indie

filmmaking world, Papert has developed a well-rounded sensibility with an eye to all

facets of production. Working fast and creatively are among the key assets he

brings to each project.

Papert is represented by the Partos Company.
