BLC: FIRST, your goals. THEN IDEAS, PLANS, SCRIPT, EXECUTION, results.
Producing a stellar video for your meeting, for the web, for point of sale, for new products, and for motivation takes more than owning a camera. After all, you're telling a story: a video story.

HOW WE WORK
Our results-oriented production flow keeps you and us in sync, and our eye on the prize.
A proposal is more than a number. It's a living document born of interviews, research, and brainstorming. We meet with you, we investigate alternative approaches, we return with a living the document that proposes a solution, measures the results, and attached a detailed cost.
Much more than words.
A script is considered to be the words used in a video. Wrong.
A script is everything-- words, pictures, sequences, music, graphics-- it is the blueprint for the emotional flow of a communications piece that will achieve your desired result.
The creativity has just begun.
Yes, there is videography. Plenty of it. Add lighting, framing techniques, pov, multiple angles, steadicam. There's audio. If you think sound is less important than picture, think again. Can you hum the "Star Wars" theme? Finally, graphics, effects, and editing. There are plenty of happy surprises left.
Review and Release
You have the final say.
Proposal, script and final review all involve your approval-- have we produced a product that will reach your goal and exceeds your expectations? Next is preparing the media for its method of distribution. We know the requirements, from aspect ratios, to file requirements, to broadcast standards or web compression.

Bridget Lazlo, CPIM, CSCP
We at Guardian Business Solutions, are very thankful for the quality job VideoStory did on our video presentation.We picked VideoStory because we felt they had a more creative approach and we were not disappointed. Their staff was very professional and worked hard to get the right product to us.
I give Brien and his firm my highest recommendation without reservation. They executed a short video 3-5 minutes on time, on budget and with great narrative effect on a short time frame. Great experience in the field which works to the client's advantage. Understands that video must work for the client -- not just for their own creative portfolio. A pleasure to work with -- high integrity.
Brien is the master when is comes to storytelling. He knows what a client needs before the client knows they need it. It was a privilege to work with him and learn from the best. No matter the medium, a good story is a good story - and Brien can go right to the heart of it to make you laugh, make you cry, make you laugh until you cry, make you think, make you open your wallet, make you change your mind, whatever you want your story to do.
Brien is an expert producer, writer and director, as good as it gets for crafting stories for video and moving images. For your audience, he will elevate them, levitate them, turn them around and put them right where you want them: believing in your message, passionately motivated about your product, business or service, and ready for action. Trust him with any video message where *impact* is the desired result.
