Videos can be a significant expense in terms of both time and money. But you’ve decided it’s time and you want a return on your investment and you want the process to be as smooth as possible. How do you make sure you can get that?


The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior, Mark Twain said. So if it were us, we’d be looking for two things: strong credentials and strong references.


We like how we stack up in those two departments. We began our careers working with some of the most esteemed media organizations in the world, including National Geographic, PBS, Discovery, as well as with filmmakers who have won Academy Awards. We’ve made films that have won awards at major film festivals and have been distributed through top tier organizations like Netflix. Along the way the industry has affirmed our efforts through national and regional Emmy Awards, as well as Remi and Telly awards.


What’s it like to work with us? You may read below what some of our clients have to say about that. In summary, our clients tell us that we consistently exceed their expectations, deliver on time and on budget, add value as collaborators where needed for crafting a story, message, or vision, and are easy to work with.


If we sound like we might be a good fit for you and your Denver area business, drop us a note here and tell us about your project.

FirstBank is the second largest bank in Colorado. They are growing fast and are in need of new talent to help fuel their growth for their Colorado operations. They wanted a video they could post on their website and social media platforms to help attract that talent. The culture at FirstBank is very different from the the stuffy environment most of think of when we think of banks and it was something they wanted to highlight in the video. We proposed a video project that would showcase that culture via the eyes and experiences of seven employees, which would bring authenticity to the FirstBank working experience.




Denver-based FirstBank’s motto is “banking for good.” The Colorado organization is heavily involved in their community through partnerships with nonprofits. They are now adding to their community involvement by giving a helping hand in the form of gifts to long-time customers who have fallen on hard times. This gifting event took place just north of Denver.

Denver has no shortage of businesses passionate about helping their customers change their lives for the better. For the Urban Farm Company of Colorado, based in Boulder, that means empowering people to grow wholesome food right in their own backyard. We were approached by to create a video that captured the story of business founder Bryant Mason and COO Kylie Manson. To maintain the authenticity of their work, we chose to shoot the video on location in their own environment as they undergo many of their daily routines for seed growing. 


Life-saving medicine has a long journey to reach our pharmacy shelves. From research to development to trials to approval, the journey can be 20 years. FBR Media president approached us with the challenge of showing that journey in a traditional 60-second commercial video. We were up to the task because we know how to utilize visual storytelling to shrink time and connect with viewers on an emotional level in short period of time. For this video, we hired a 25-person crew and a talented motion graphic artist to help us achieve the vision FBR desired. The Telly Awards recognized us for a best directing award. 


This California company was growing and wanted to project a more professional brand regionally to attract new business. We spent a lot of time with Conserve’s marketing director to translate their business goals into style, script, and storyboards. This preparation paid off: When it came time to film in and around the Palm Springs area, our scripts were final and we were confident in our approach. In addition to their brand story, we produced corporate testimonial videos that are a powerful endorsement of their quality service.

Like the Urban Farm Company above, Recbecca’s business, also based in Boulder,  is passionate about helping their customers live healthier lives. For them this means connecting people with the healthful power of botanical medicine. Their interest is first in the community, so not only do they sell herbs, but they also offer classes where the community can learn about the different applications of their products and how they can make their own medicine. When we scouted their shop for the video shoot, we found their passion to be practically oozing out of the walls. Their shop was a unique environment and we knew it would be the perfect environment to tell their story. Produced for 


Veteran advertising executive Kara Verhoorn of Tell Me A Story contacted us with an idea to do a different kind of residential real estate business video. Traditionally, real estate videos focus on the features, the layout, the price. Kara wanted to do a video that focused instead on a compelling story and emotions. She had tried out her idea with another company that wasn’t able to reach her expectations. Impressed with our portfolio, she reached out to us next to try again. Strong emotional storytelling is what we do best, so we accepted the challenge and got right to work. The collaboration with Kara ended up being a fantastic match and we are proud to have delivered a final video that fulfils her initial vision.

Platinum luxury auctions works with luxury residential properties all over the country. When they had a listing come up in Denver, they contacted us to produce the video. We had a long conversation with our contact there to develop scenes around the house that would showcase the best features of the house. Once we settled on a script we hired models, acquired props, and got together the best tools for video capturing, including a drone for exterior shots and the golf course and hand-held gimbal for interior shots.

Squadra Coppi is a premier cycling club based in Arlington, Virginia. A staple on the local road and cyclocross scene for more than two decades, Coppi riders are known for supporting their members on and off the bike. This video was produced to appeal to sponsors and prospective members.

“Probiotic Pickleteers” — that’s what Osuke business founders Mara and Willow King call themselves. They started out making pickled things in their home kitchens and now that passion has grown to a full-scale factory with several full-time employees. They wanted a video that captured that origin story and their love for creating food that gives back to the earth. Despite the extra help they now have, both are still actively involved the making of their products, such as kim chi. We wanted to set the video in their factory where we could witness them at work as they told us about their story. Produced for


This is the second video in a series of productions we produced for Denver-based FirstBank. Here they are surprising long-time customer Ed at their branch in Colorado Springs.

They willingly invest their whole mind and spirit in a video project, resulting in a super-pro video production from start to finish. Even when you think your video project is great, just wait, they will insist on making it transformative.”
—Kara Verhoorn, Tell Me A Story, Fort Collins, Colorado

Their admirable, incredible expertise coupled with their kind personalities make working with them an absolute pleasure. We know we can trust them with capturing a masterful representation in a video of our organization and its mission time and again. It is a joy to know and work with them.”

We unveiled the new video at our luncheon and have started to share it on our website and social media and the response has been amazing. It’s incredible that Doug was able grasp the essence of what we do here and in just a short period of time. I hope we can work with him again in the future.”
—Sheena Sullivan, Coal Creek Meals on Wheels, Lafayette, Colorado
