Story Rock Media is a one-person operation. Justin Freeman operates his business in the evenings and on weekends. For his full-time gig, he writes, produces, lights, shoots, edits, does motion graphics...well, you get the idea...he creates all kinds of videos for the Alaska State Troopers.
Before that, he shot and edited local TV news for a decade. His first two years were at WLEX in Lexington, Kentucky. His last eight were at KTUU Channel 2, right here at home. At Channel 2, he contributed to a number of documentaries and produced, shot and edited a one-hour local music documentary entitled “Music Matters”.
Before returning home to Alaska, he lived in London for a few months, interning at CNN World Business.
Justin has a bachelor’s in Journalism Broadcasting, graduated Magna Cum Laude, and did everything you can do at a public television station at KUAC, while he attended the University of Alaska Fairbanks. During his college years, he also counted sockeye (and grizzlies) during the summers for Fish & Game.
Justin went to high school in Kodiak, but now we’re just going back way too far...
Oh yeah, and he has won an Emmy and has been nominated for 8 others for TV ads, earned 9 Bronze Telly awards for TV ads, has two NPPA (National Press Photographers Association) first place awards for news stories, was part of the KTUU photography staff that snagged Channel 2 its first NPPA small market Station of the Year for Photography, acquired six Goldies for work in news, won dozens of Alaska Press Club awards, received a Scripps Howard Foundation National Journalism Award and shot and edited one fifth of the documentary “Indian Country” that garnered Channel 2 an Edward R. Murrow Award.
