Video Highlights: The Side Yard Documentary

Are you looking for a professional videographer for your next project or event? You  may be wondering why I'm showcasing documentary work on my professional website meant for commercial work. It's really not much of a mystery. If you want a professional video team, it sure helps to know they have experience with a wide range of projects, and are not just limited to one type of production. 

Here's why: 

Storytelling is what matters

The number one goal of marketing of any kind is to make sure your business stands our for all the right reasons. This means sharing your company story in a compelling and unforgettable manner. Think about some of your favorite movies. Now recall some of your favorite commercials. I'm sure that you have a much stronger attachment to the former. That's because storytelling is the centerpiece of any great movie, whether narrative or documentary. And those same skills will translate directly into commercial filmmaking. If you want your company video to accurately and effectively tell your company story, hire someone who's experienced with narrative or documentary work.

A professional can adapt to any scenario

Video shoots can be chaotic, especially if you haven't done your homework. But no matter how much you plan, there's always the potential for the unexpected to happen, whether it's bad weather, missing talent, or unscheduled interruptions. When you hire a video production team, knowing that they have experience with all kinds of professional environments means you can have peace of mind knowing that whatever unforeseen obstacle comes up, they'll be able to adjust quickly and stay focused on getting the job done right. 

Find the right style for your brand

You can learn a lot about your videographer by looking at the work they've done that wasn't for just a paycheck. It's easy to find a professional who knows what they are doing behind the camera and in the editing suite. But does their aesthetic match your vision for your brand? Their personal work probably better showcases what a videographer is all about. Looking at their narrative and documentary work not only tells you they have a wide range of experience, but it also gives you insight into their personal style and taste. That's really what you are hiring.

The Side Yard documentary

Protecting the environment is very important to me, and that's why I'm producing a series of mini-documentaries on environmental issues that effect the Pacific Northwest. The Side Table is an urban farm located in the heart of NE Portland, and is surrounded by residential houses. It's a great example of what's possible in terms of local agriculture, and it was an honor to get to share Stacey's story with the Portland community. If you like what you see, please keep me in mind for any future projects you might have. I approach all my projects with the same passion for perfection and my goal is to share what makes everyone of my client's special.
