A different approach to film and video
Although we’ve been in the film and video industry for 20 years, our approach to corporate videos, films and documentaries is unique. We’re videographers, editors, lighting gurus, designers, animators, scriptwriters, illustrators, documentarians and music lovers. Because our team is multidisciplinary our projects tend to take on a multimedia nature.
When tasked with a project, rather than immediately thinking about execution, we focus on the problem, making sure we are aligned with your communication objective, budget and timeline.
Only then the fun can begin.

How we do it
Our team develops a range of concepts that we present as storyboards. Ideas are bantered about and once a direction is selected, we develop a production outline. Crews are hired, talent is selected, animators are lined up and the production begins. Our DPs, videographers and production crews are best-in-class. We have established relationships with video crews on every continent except Antarctica.
Footage comes in, graphics are created, voiceovers are recorded and a roughcut begins to take shape. Our post-production process can be highly collaborative and we welcome client involvement. As veterans of the branding business, we know even the best laid plans are prone to change. If your C-Level boss kills the concept and wants to start over, we’re rolling with it. As we move closer and closer to the deadline, amazingly the roughcut becomes a final cut.
How we really do it
Natalie Halpern is our Senior Producer and she is the master of pre-production and production. Need a crew in India, Mexico and South Africa? Next week? She can do that. As a former broadcast journalist, she handles all of our interviews, making sure that we get the perfect soundbytes and that every detail is covered. Natalie is queen of the storyline, making sure the edit makes sense and tells a story. Natalie is also CEO and Executive Producer of Natalie Halpern Productions.
Jeffrey Harrington is the concept mastermind and editor. He makes sure that the messaging and design fit the brand. Always pushing the team for new creative executions, he is often the one saying, “It’s not good enough. This can be better.” Jeffrey is also charged with selecting those music tracks that stick in your head. As a professional photographer and videographer in his own right, Jeffrey’s trained eye keeps our DPs producing cinematic quality video.
Stephanie Soden is the genius who turns a sketch on a napkin into motion graphic artistry. Stephanie sees things differently than the rest of us. Her world is a world where flat objects spring to life and travel through time ans space at 24 frames per second. We have no idea how she does it.
In addition to our core team, we work with outstanding freelance talent from 3D animators, audio engineers, videographers, directors of photography, lighting experts, casting directors, color graders, hair and makeup artists, wardrobe stylists, set decorators and production crew.
