Great storytelling creates powerful results
The Minnesota Millionaire
I produced and filmed Minnesota Millionaire Rob Undersander as he exposed welfare loopholes by showing that with no asset test in place, even a millionaire can receive food stamps. Mr. Undersander’s story caused shockwaves in Washington, D.C. His determination and spunk made us fall in love with him. And his willingness to drive all over the city to recreate the story made us grateful. Watch the video and see why this story is making such an impact.
Great storytelling creates powerful allies
The Juan Carlos Story
The Governor of Arizona actively shared this video to help promote his position for licensing reform. Juan Carlos provided free haircuts to homeless vets when the cosmetology board tried to shut him down. See what happens in what will always be one of my favorite videos to ever produce. I walked away from this shoot in tears. And I’ll never forget the people I met that day.
Great storytelling empowers people
Amanda’s story was an afterthought once we had wrapped filming an interview with her state’s governor. His office mentioned there was a woman we “might” want to speak with. I had no idea at that moment what an impact she would have on us all. This will always be one of my favorite stories and I am so proud to now call her my friend. Watch her amazing journey from dependence to freedom.
Great storytelling connects us with people
Lawrence Jones: Working Toward the American Dream
For our interview with Lawrence Jones, I wanted it to feel differently from videos that I had produced in the past. I wanted it to be raw and real. We didn’t add background music only using the natural surrounding sounds and filmed in a public location. We wanted the camera work to convey the realness of the location and of Lawrence Jones who is one of the most genuine people I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing. I think we did him justice.
Governors are people too!
Great storytelling makes people relatable
South Dakota Governor
Governor Kristi Noem has a powerful story. I’ve now produced videos with eleven different governors and including their personal stories to show people how relatable they are became an important goal for me. We didn’t want to simply create another politician’s video. We wanted to show a human side and how their life experiences influenced their decision into a life of public service.
This was one of my favorites.
