Engaging, Effective Videos for Your Business or Organization
The Right Strategy
I approach video, first of all, as a communications specialist. Some approach video from the technical side. But I started in video as a scriptwriter … that means I’m committed to getting your message across.
Marketing and promotional videos. For events, businesss conferences, fundraising, the web and social media. Using interviews, b-roll and storytelling techniques to bring your message to life.
A Smooth Path for You
You’ll follow a system of clear steps … making it easy for you. I’ll guide us along, whether you’ve made videos before or this is your first one. I promise to make this a smooth journey that leads to a video you’ll love.

what kind of videos do you make?
Lately most of my videos are made without narration, using people to convey your message in their own words. And we add b-roll footage to make the video come to life.
what's your background?
How much does a video cost?
how long does it take to make a video?
A more complicated video might realistically take weeks. It can take a while for busy people to find the time to be on camera. And for your staff to find time to fit in reviews at the steps along the way.
