Who is Kidron Cannon?
My name is Kidron Cannon. I’m 25 years old, and I’ve been a full-time filmmaker for five years. I’ve always loved extreme sports and traveling, so those are the things I tend to film. Being a freelance videographer, alongside my wife who is a freelance photographer, allows me lots of time to film the things I enjoy.
My favorite thing to do in life is to use my skills to capture and tell stories about the things which inspire me the most. Filmmaking takes up basically all of my time, and I really can’t differentiate between my work and my life. That’s just the way I like it!
The stories behind the best videos
1. NashVegas in Real Life
I wanted to create something which encapsulates the nickname of my city, “NashVegas.” It took 3 months of filming with a dozen performers, but I think we pulled it off!
2. Seasons of Exploration
My wife and I spent our first year of marriage exploring our new home state, Tennessee. We saw every corner of the state, and she took countless pictures; the imagery was stunning!
3. The Land of Gold
Flying halfway around the world to Myanmar was exhausting. Exploring Yangon, the “Land of Gold,” was well worth it!
4. Kansas City Scrappin
Bryce is my best friend, and I’ve been documenting his journey in MMA for the past 4 years. He fought on NBC in Kansas City, and I was determined to tell his perspective of the experience!
5. BOS Parkour
Parkour is a sport that has captured my imagination for many years. I wanted to show the juxtaposition between training in a safe, indoor environment, and going big outside on unforgiving terrain!

Never do anything half-heartedly. Do what you love, and put your absolute best into it. Come what may.
