My names Drake Whelton and I've been messing with camera's since I was a child. A graduate from Delta College's Electronic Media Broadcasting/Film Production class of 2015, I've been working consistently in my home town of Saginaw Michigan and across the country to grow my business White Knuckle Films. I love to bring story's to life through video and my experiences with different cultures from around the world has left an everlasting impact.
Formerly I have worked for Garber Management Group/Saginaw Spirit as their videographer from 2014 - 2022. As of 2023 I have ventured my own path in running White Knuckle Films full time and not looking back!
Known for work with:
Noise Machine Records
Live, Love, Local Michigan
State of Mine
I have created commercial content for top name brands like Audi, Honda, Porsche, Chevrolet, Jeep and more.
I've had a great honors to work with the Saginaw Spirit, OHL, Delta College, The Knot, SVSU, RED, WWE, Harlem Globetrotters, Monster Trucks, Hell's Half Mile, ALTERNATIVE PRESS, SKULE.org, Counter Culture, NBC, WNEM-TV5, Paul Raymond Records, Full Send Studios, The Boys Room, RED, GREATER, Dodge, Ram, MTV and many more over the past four years of doing professional video work.
I believe video content has played one of the biggest roles in filling the entertainment gap for musicians and businesses, looking for digital marketing that can transform their dreams into a thriving business. Reach out to us if you think we'd be a good fit for helping you reach that goal. My intent will always be for my clients to get not only the best videos but the best experience on my sets. Whether that be a wedding, music video or commercial.
