The 8:30 AM meeting...otherwise known as: "Maybe we should hire a producer."
They have their coffee. You have their attention. Your idea for a bold, video-driven content strategy is followed by the question "How much will that cost?" "Can we launch by March 1st?" And then: "Who's filming?"
The intern says, "I have a camera."
Video content is an essential component of marketing success. One study found it to be 600% more effective than print and direct mail combined. In fact, merely mentioning the word 'video' in an email subject line, increased the click-through by 13%.
But if you're reading this you've already decided you want your content to be different. Not budget-breakingly different... but insightful and engaging. You want to impress and captivate an audience that needs you. We can help.
All of our Inland Northwest cinematography shops have their strengths and weaknesses. They have different shooting styles, cameras and pricing models. We'll help you navigate that and build the team that best suits your project and your vision.
We get to know you, your audience, your goals. We'll develop the concept, budget, script, schedules, shot-sheets. We'll direct on-site and provide additional filming as needed. We will usually provide the editing services and art-direct any motion graphics required.
Our involvement provides exceptional creativity and a layer of project management and efficiency that will almost always save you money.
Whether you want one four-minute film to play at a fundraising event, a series of weekly educational videos, a podcast, photos...or all of those, we'll provide the vision and team to bring your content to life.

Stories are how we see, share, feel and learn.
As a producer/director, I'm passionate about the power of story. I also love building the strategy that gives your content purpose. With over 25 years as a creative and marketing professional, I thrive on helping you matter..to the people that matter to you.

Jesse has a gift for visualizing cinematic aerial shots...and executing
He has invested in top-quality gear and is currently the region's only pilot to have been granted a "Night Waiver." No, that's not a new local pub. It's FAA permission to fly in the dark. Which makes for some very cool aerial shots.
Our Inland Northwest film-making community is small but mighty.
We are not L.A.
We don't need to be.
We work with some incredibly talented film professionals...
and they're right here.

generation of Hutton kids to come on site
and learn about the renovation of the Looff.
