John Driftmier - Director / Cameraman

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada


Character-driven, action-packed, edge-of-your-seat documentary and reality TV is what I do best. Through years of experience, I have made it my specialty working in extreme conditions, following larger-than-life characters who earn their livings in wild and wonderful ways.

Some of my recent TV directing credits include:

- Highway Thru Hell (Discovery Channel)

- Dangerous Flights (Discovery Channel)

- License to Drill (Discovery Channel)

  1. -Ice Pilots NWT (History Channel / Nat Geo)

  2. -Monster Moves (Discovery Channel / Nat Geo)

- All For Nothing? (W Network)

This website was created to be an extension of my resume. Please check out some video examples of my work, and feel free to contact me with any questions or requests.
