About Us

Our experience

Small businesses make the Akron community one of a kind. We know because we’ve been telling their stories since 2004. But our roots here run even deeper: We’re one of those small businesses, and our family of talented videographers and editors are proud to call Akron home.

Our services

We know the key to small business is staying nimble, which is how we scale our production capabilities to handle projects of virtually any scope.

Our local studio can handle everything from headshot photography to day-long shoots of product demos, video series, and webinars — with craft services catered on site to keep up the momentum — even through lunch. It’s the smartest way to stretch your production budget, minimize travel costs and slashing set—up time.

Our team

Our producers are the kind of people you had in mind when you first realized you need to hire a professional. They do it all, from documentary-style brand videos to training programs and commercials.

They are independent filmmakers, broadcasters, and most importantly, nerds who are genuinely excited to answer your questions and talk through your project.

Our process

Communication is the thread that ties it all together. We start by listening, getting to know your business and your customers so we can tailor a script to deliver the right message to the right audience.

It continues throughout the shoot, where we capture every shot in the script, plus B roll of your business in action.

Finally, we keep in touch through post production. It doesn’t have to be a black box — we’re here to answer your questions even during the editing process, and provide support after we’ve delivered your project, including helping you distribute it across the proper channels online and on air.
