John X Demaio

Storytelling is the best word that I can use to describe myself and my passion for this business. Whether it is a carefully crafted scene, or a complex edit, I find that visual storytelling is where I shine.

A little about myself…I am an Emmy winning cinematographer, editor and visual artist working out of Central Florida since 1997. I spend a great deal of my time traveling the world telling stories. I have had the opportunity to work on everything from feature films to national television programming, and love every minute of what I do for a living.

I regularly work with networks like ABC, NBC/Universal, TLC, Starz, History Channel, HGTV, MTV, NFL Network, BBC, SKY1 (UK) and Channel 4 (UK.). In addition, I have also worked on countless Walt Disney World projects for Disney Parks Creative Entertainment as well as Universal Studios Orlando.

I am the co-creator of the nationally syndicated television series Travel Thru History – a National Daytime Emmy nominated series that brings history alive through travel.


2014 also saw the introduction of a new aspect of my career, the founding of The Watch and Learn Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that focuses on educational content designed to inspire an increased interest in American History, S.T.E.M (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), Fine Arts and Humanities for teens and young adults.

At Home

In my spare time, I spend as much time with my family as possible, but I also enjoy sculpting tikis, illustrating, and other visual arts projects. My love of the beach and the water has kept me sane throughout the years, and hitting the surf has been the best way for me to unwind after a long production.

I would encourage you to contact me for any production related questions that you might have. I truly enjoy doing this stuff and would be happy to help you in any way possible.
