From humble beginnings as an aspiring filmmaker in a small town in South Carolina, Caleb Holland has risen to be a successful entrepreneur in the film industry. With only his ambition and shoestring budgets, he built a successful business as a freelance cinematographer in the southeast, shooting a variety of commercial and personal projects in order to fund the pursuit of his degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design. After graduating with honors, Holland continued to cultivate a wide variety of skills. Today he meticulously leads productions with his characteristic eye for perfection, working as a hands-on director and producer. Whether it’s managing budgets, hiring crew members, casting and directing talent, writing scripts, or designing sets, nothing escapes Holland’s keen eye for polished, professional production. Holland has also worked on numerous features as an EPK cinematographer and producer.
Holland joined the WITH/ agency in Atlanta, Georgia in 2018, and oversaw the establishment of a video production studio within the agency. From hiring staff and crew, to developing video and film business and overseeing productions from start to finish, he was the backbone of the creation and growth of the department.
Being a documentarian at heart, Holland is avid in his desire to depict the human experience in all its forms. As a member of the LGBTQ community, he is passionate about tackling the challenges this community faces and has focused much of his work on making a difference in this regard. In 2017, he released his first documentary feature, titled Chasing Capri, which captured the trans rights movement taking place across the American south, and the aftermath of the tragic Pulse Nightclub shooting. Following Chasing Capri, Holland was selected by Focus Features to be the EPK cinematographer for the film Boy Erased. The film centered on the story of the son of a Baptist preacher, forced to participate in a church-supported gay conversion program. Holland handled daily behind the scenes content and interviews with cast and crew during the production. He went on to capture EPK on Eli Roth’s The House with a Clock in its Walls and on Goosebumps 2.
A versatile and enthusiastic producer, Caleb has also masterminded a series of videos and short films for the Super Bowl host committee in 2018, a documentary short on Hurricane Harvey, a six-part documentary series on energy efficient small businesses, a broadcast campaign and two minute short film for Kaiser Permanente, multiple fashion films, and a creative social media campaign for Parisa Wang handbags in New York. As an artist, Holland is constantly striving to achieve diversity and unity at once, filming many different facets of human life, its triumphs and its struggles, and pulling it all together in one robust narrative.
