One at Optimus
Head of Production
Area of Expertise: Production, Production Management
Dave Buehrle is the Head of Production at One at Optimus in Chicago. He started his career by moving from his native Michigan to Los Angeles to scrap for any job he could in the film/TV/commercial industry. After a few lucky breaks, he found himself "specializing" in movie fourquels, working on the fourth installments of the Indiana Jones, Fast and Furious, and Transformers franchises. His experience in commercials grew after a move to Chicago, and with a decade of freelance work under his belt, he took a staff position at One at Optimus. He enjoys working with directors, the challenge of figuring out the jigsaw puzzle of each project, and most of all, catering on shoot days.
