About My Business:

 

I'm a Florida videographer. I provide website videos and event videos. All my life I have enjoyed good stories. Growing up I would look to story to inform me about people, places and things in my life. Since graduating college in the late seventies I have worked with camera crews telling stories on screen. I have studied the finer details of story telling. • How to engage an audience before presenting the story, so they will care about the story. • How to open a story • the body of the story • when it's a selling story (the majority of my work has been in telling stories that sell ideas, concepts, people, places or things) how to conclude with a call-to-action that moves the viewer to take a desired action. During the 70's 80's and 90's distributing screen stories was very expensive. I have had my share of failure with regard to reaching an audience with my work. I consider that OK. I consider the early years as learning years. The years when I would struggle with composition, story, story structure, and technical considerations such as exposure, camera movement, screen direction, shifting focus, working with people, drawing out the essence of a subject. Working with screen actors, working with many, many types of film stocks and film cameras, learning color timing (the "look") of a film. Editing, pacing, delivering a selling message that worked without being over the top or just plane dumb. Learning to cope with rejection, learning to sell my services as a screen artist, a filmmaker, a gaffer, a director of photography, camera operator. Learning to: sell a shot, selling a concept, selling a client, a military organization, a civilian organization a municipality, a friend. • Selling became an offering, an offer to assist others. An offer to assist using very specific screen skill sets I have developed professionally since 1980. • I have found two things that always work, that always sell, that always engage an audience: quality and variety. My wife Anne and I have a boutique pre production/production/post-production/Internet distribution studio in our nation's oldest city. We work with many wonderful clients and friends. We work on some very important topics, issues and events facing our planet. We work on some very fun, light projects that we love too. We would enjoy speaking to you about your next project. We can help, we know how. Call us at 904-395-1948.
