Raymond Prado

Raymond Prado is known as one of the top visual thinkers in the business. He has worked as a storyboard artist and with Hollywood’s best directors including Taylor Hackford, Walter Hill, John Woo, Robert Rodriguez, and Francis Lawrence. Raymond was Taylor Hackford’s Second Unit Director on the Oscar-Nominated “Ray” and most recently, a couple of TV Pilots that will never see the light of day. What a business. Raymond has directed everything from opening credit sequences, stunts, and visual effects shots to scenes with lead actors on location and montages featuring lead actors in movies ranging from serious dramas to broad comedies. Raymond studied Art History and Fine Arts at Dartmouth College where he also played what appeared to be football. When he isn’t making movies, he is running a bakery in the hills of Vermont with his wife, Gesine.
