Our process


Our team of creatives will help you share your story through a humanist lens. With each of our clients, we forge a unique relationship and tailor our approach accordingly. We will work with you to find your voice and to capture the soul of your brand. 


Storytelling goes far beyond words. It is about voice, tone, music, visuals. For us, it’s all important: the senses, the shots, the angles, the lighting, the sounds, the cuts, the NARRATIVE.


Filmmaking is a multidimensional form of storytelling. We aim for our form to reflect the content. 



On all of our shoots, we send a Director of Photography (DP), a second camera operator, an Art Director and a Production Assistant – in addition to the talent you will cast alongside us. 



From here, our top-notch editor takes the reigns, along with the vision of our entire creative team, and you of course. We offer you multiple cuts until your story is ready to be shared with the world.



Styles we Play With:



Scripted/Commercial/Branded – By scripted, we aren’t talking about some robotic radio voiceover listing off product features, but instead, meaningful exposition that gets to the heart of what makes experiences unique. Our stories are well-crafted using a storyboard and archetypal narratives arcs that resonate.


Documentary – Telling stories of real people having real experiences. Mixture of well-produced sit-down interviews, in the moment scenes, dialogue and voiceover narration.


VeritaeNatural and true to life. Going into the environment and finding the beauty and grit that is there.

Fundraising“My company, Greenheart Creative, has hired StartMotionMEDIA as our video producers for three consecutive years at the Wanderlust FestivalThey have been responsible for in-depth shooting and developing the creative. All their staff perform well in the video production environment. Their team confidently does what needs to be done to help every story succeed. They take extremely good care of clients and others on a personal and professional level, and thus seem to manage stressful situations with grace. They communicate with compassion, and are very clear and organized. I have hired StartMotionMEDIA 3 straight years, and plan to bring them on board again next year, right when our annual marketing budget is released. I think they are key players for any video production project: they really care about continual improvements in success metrics, and are some of the best at making great videos, always learning from each experience.”

“StartMotionMEDIA was able to help CODEPINK Women for Peace work toward our 10th anniversary gala event for investors and shareholders by creating a short video documenting inspiring work from the past decade of peace activism. Their company was thoughtful, organized, and worked quickly to meet our project launch deadline. His company accommodated our needs and feedback quickly. I would highly recommend engaging the pre-production brainstorming sessions regarding video content and storyline with StartMotionMEDIA, who, in addition to having the technical skills necessary for a production, have a lot of wisdom on effective and persuasive narrative development as well.”
– Rae

“StartMotionMedia helped our vision get rooted in reality, and our video production work kept moving in the right direction. To all your staff pre-production and videographers and editors: I appreciate your willingness and commitment to understanding more about my project than I even did, doing what is needed to make things happen, and your clarity about the creative storytelling that would convert. Everyone on your team is smart, kind, caring, talented. I will recommend you to people who need help launching their next marketing campaign, and who see the value in an amazing video. Thanks for everything!”
– Robert, Inspiration Campaign

“StartMotionMEDIA created an inspiring crowdfunding video to support our project. And they walked us hand in hand through the peer-to-peer crowdfunding launch. Their consulting was everything we needed, and only what we needed. Thank god I chose to go ahead with Agency quality –  we we’re successfully funded, and then some! Their eye for capturing the human spirit made our message so much more compelling and inspiring. With deep appreciation,”
– Magalie, Dancing without Borders


“The most helpful services were storyline creation, production logistics, visual creative development, and of course awesome shooting (their director knew how to get the human spirit back in our actors), and the speedy editing, and ultimate video creation. StartMotionMEDIA is thorough, organized, they pay attention to detail, they are prompt, open-minded, and patient. From the first call to shooting day, everything was well thought out. And if I knew ahead of time the advanced camera rigs they had, or the hollywood quality color grading they did, the other “low budget” people I was considering would have paled by comparison. They do what they need to learn about the project and the company behind the project. On the day of our shoot, went through all the sequences and visual shots we needed to capture. The production team was very strict on the production day despite me wanting to add things that were not discussed – I liked that aspect as it would have thrown us off schedule and off track…their director kept us together. I am very happy with the video.”
– Adrian, Slick Athletics

Although our business video production services are affordable, they are also strong on the key components: experience, story, cinematography, and pacing.

Basic video productions are similar to affordable video production, but when it comes to your startup, startup video production should be in a totally different category.

Oftentimes when you need to get your startup fundraising done, what you need is an explainer video production company or demo video to show your investor prospects. And couple that with a firm that also offers landing page video production, your demo video production and video content production will blow your mind.

The thing about business explainer videos are that many folks want animations of motion graphics. That's where our animated explainer videos come in:
