Provid Films is a production company in Minneapolis / St Paul.

See Our Work

We have the production crew and gear you want if your goal is to capture TV content, commercials, documentary or video content.

Our specialty is in capturing beautiful footage with limited resources - sometimes that's limited crew, gear, or location. (While we wish every project had a big budget, we find that's not always the case. That's where we shine.)

Fastest Way to Connect  Facebook Messenger -  text phone email 

If you have a crew flying in, we offer support. (Whether that's freelancers, 2nd camera operators with their own gear or working to get you the gear you need)

If you want to source a local crew in Minnesota (or anywhere in the MN, WI, IL, IA, SD or ND area) - we often help clients capture footage and overnight footage frequently. Saving a lot on travel costs. 

If you're looking for a full production company to handle your project from start to finish - we would love to talk as well.  From scriptwriting in pre-production to filming on set with production to editing and revisions in post-production, our creative production company strives to engage the viewers in emotionally compelling ways that help accomplish measurable results.

Vidguru, LLC

If you have an upcoming media project or fundraising campaign, you need a Vidguru! As your vidguru, I'll be your creative and technical consultant, partnering with you to produce your content and plan a strategy for the optimal way of making sure it gets in front of your target audience. Not only will you have an amazing video by the end of our time together, you'll also have gained the skills to continue creating the video and photo content your organization will be proud to share. 

My goal as your vidguru, is for us to not only produce amazing content together, but to provide you with the tools to continue telling your own stories in ways that will make an impact in this hyper competitive social-media world. 

I truly believe that we are all storytellers. What separates the good storytellers from everyone else isn’t the expensive gear, it’s knowing how to tell a story that invokes emotion and imprints upon the viewer a message that they will carry with them for years later.
