With a Master in Film and Fine Arts from Savannah College of Art and Design, Gino Payne started his film career working in commercial and promotional advertisement. His first projects were in the music video business where he created music videos for Micah Troy, The Outlawz, Roscoe Dash and others. This work won him recognition and a number of A.U.M.A.S awards. In 2010, he directed his first feature film, "We Was HomeBoyz" (2011), starring Pastor Troy and Sean Low. Concurrently, Gino worked on projects such as HBO's Hard Knocks, Walking Dead, and Game of Thrones within the camera department. In 2013, Gino moved to Las Vegas, NV for a position as Producer and Senior Editor with LFL (Legends Football League) Films. With LFL Films, Gino traveled to Australia, Canada, & the US shooting, editing, and producing a weekly series called “The Story” which was credited for the elevation of production quality in LFL Films. It was there, through LFL Films, that Gino gained extensive knowledge within Sports Television in both shooting and in storytelling. It was time, however, to relocate 360Films, formerly known as 360iNetwork, to Las Vegas. Gino has since gone on to direct projects such as "GRRRL - Beauty & the Beast" which won four Telly Awards and "Son of Sheba" which is currently in the 2020 Festival Market. He currently directs and produces full time for 360Films but also concurrently works directly for big companies such as the Vegas Golden Knights and PokerNews. Gino is most passionate about creating inspiring stories through all aspects of film.
