Fun fact: over 6 billion videos are viewed on YouTube every month. That’s almost an hour for every person on Earth! Absorb that for a moment!

Videos are a valuable, powerful way to tell your story, to showcase your work and your passion, and to engage with your target audience. We’re not talking infomercials here, we’re talking about compelling, interesting, and emotionally engaging storytelling that can drive meaningful visitors to your site.

And, that’s what we do.  We use stories to make your business come alive. We transform your service from a one-dimensional commodity into a multi-dimensional solution that they can connect with, and compel them to take action.

Let's work together to turn viewers into doers. Video done right can make your business unforgettable. We do video right by understanding your business, your business goals and your target audience. Then we decide the best kind of storytelling that will resonate with that audience.

Whether it's in a documentary-style, humorous, or emotional. It may star you, actors, your customers or a spokesperson. It’s all about finding the right way to tell the right story, so you get the most out of your investment.

NOTABLE SKILLS

  • Projects start and end with communication skills.  Whether we're warming up to a board member, coaxing talent to feel their lines or subtly directing technical partners, we know how to turn business dialogue into warm, encouraging conversation.  We listen more than we talk, and that's how it should be.
  • We are deeply technical.  We have no choice.  Cameras, wireless audio and lighting equipment were built by engineers for artists.  Luckily, at Sky Blue Pictures, we have both on staff.
  • Production versatility can turn a 30-minute job into a 4-hour painful experience.  Quick-thinking builder of things and fixer of everything else, we get the job done safely and efficiently.  Time is money, and we like to save some for everybody.
  • Relentlessly observant because everything is in the details.  On-set, at a coffee shop meeting, or setting up gear.  There's no reason for us to let things slip, slide or go unnoticed.  If we do, your audience will notice, and we can't have that.
