Storymind Productions makes inspiring stories come to life with character-driven, documentary-style videos and interactive experiences. Our clients include nonprofits, craftspeople, community-minded businesses and creative agencies.
We believe story is paramount. The cameras don’t start recording until we’ve developed a message that resonates with your audience, identified compelling characters and crafted an engaging storyline.
I’m drawn to people who inspire me with their creativity, their courage, or their commitment to a cause. The woodworker who builds furniture from reclaimed lumber. The refugee who helps others find their footing in a new land. The binational couple who fights for immigration reform at the risk of losing their life together.
Over the last two decades, I’ve practiced the craft of narrative storytelling for a variety of media. I’ve written for newspapers, magazines and organizations, led interactive content projects as web team leader at Mercy Corps and produced multimedia stories for OPB. Since 2013, I’ve combined my ear for story and eye for visuals into work as a video producer and editor.
In both producer and editor roles, it’s my job to help others realize their vision. I enjoy taking projects from scripting and story development to final polish and delivery, or starting anywhere in between. My editing credits include 50 Feet From Syria, shortlisted for the 2016 Academy Award for Best Short Documentary.
I’d love to know what stories you want to tell, and figure out how Storymind Productions can help.
