Hop Top Films began with a leap of faith. Founder, Evan Schneider had just graduated from Boston University’s Center For Digital Imaging Arts in 2011 and was completely lost. It wouldn’t be until three years later, that leap of faith began. He had been working three jobs to save up enough money to have the equipment he needed to go out and become a Cinematographer. By passionately cultivating a vast library of knowledge and building an arsenal of professional equipment, Evan was able to establish a name for Hop Top Films in the past few years.

In 2014, Evan was working as Cinematographer on a popular web series, “Girl in the Attic” where he met Paul Taft and found a perfect fit for a local role he was looking to cast.  Paul and Evan's relationship continued to grow after working together on these projects and they both knew there was something unique about their partnership.  Paul is a seasoned and respected SAG Actor working out of south-eastern Massachusetts, who has recently branched into Production Management and has become a true jack-of-all-trades on both sides of the camera.  Paul and Evan decided that they needed to join forces and establish a Narrative “Above The Line” Team that would serve as the backbone of Hop Top Films, creating quality films using the best equipment, cast and crew available.

In addition to Narrative Work, Hop Top Films also has a large quantity of corporate, business & promotional clients.  Hop Top Films continues to shoot high quality business promos, adding Grey Sail Brewing Company of RI, Tilted Barn, Canal Bait & Tackle, Beaumont Capital Management, Metro West Dental, and many others to it's client base in 2017.
