Cameron Law was born in Dallas and grew up just east of the city in Mesquite. He discovered his love for acting in high school while studying theater arts. Cameron moved to Los Angeles to pursue his acting dream. While there, he asked for some advice from the head of a production company. "There are a 150,000 actors here trying to network and hoping to get hired. You have 15,000 directors trying to do the same thing. What you don't have is very many people going out and creating their own great content and making Hollywood watch them." From that point forward, Cameron took matters into his own hands, returning to Texas to produce his short film A Life of an Artiste and a commercial for Photomadic. Cameron also brings fifteen years of marketing experience.
