Video Production

Video makes people care.

Creative for the People is a full service video shop, with experience in documentary, corporate, and explanatory video production. We can take care of every part of the filmmaking: scripting, shooting, editing, and post-production.

We use ultra high definition cameras with cinema quality lenses, lights, microphones, and accessories. Right now we're especially enjoying shoots with our new Black Magic Ursa Mini Pro. Since we own all our own equipment, most shoots can be completed without any additional rentals, dramatically reducing cost.

Our editing and post-production workflow is capable and flexible. We use industry standard software like Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, and DaVinci Resolve. We're comfortable handling all aspects of the process, from editing to color correction and motion graphics or collaborating with other shops if you prefer.

We are also big fans of travel. All of our equipment is airplane ready, and crew is used to shooting on the go. We've shot all over the U.S. and beyond, in cities, remote jungles, and even ships at sea.
