See Our Portfolio of Work First

We have the production crew and gear you need if your goal is to capture film / TV quality content, commercials, documentary, news, or web video content either for live streaming or post production. 

Often our clients direct remotely (from around the world) as we livestream the shots back to them saving them travel costs and handling everything to make it easy.

Adapting to the new normal, we've received certification and training including a Covid 19 Compliance Officer role if you choose - and can provide proof of vaccination if required.

We follow all laws and rules regarding updated CDC guidelines for Covid 19.

Covid compliance items look like: off-site live streaming for interviews, wireless directors monitor for socially distanced crew as much as possible and minimizing people on set (often cross-training crew to handle multiple roles).

We are still capturing beautiful footage with limited crew, gear, or location.

Live Streaming for You Off-Site

2021 we've adapted the newest technology to make it easier for clients than ever as 2020 we saw a huge shift in the number of live streaming projects and in and around the Twin Cities.

The new normal is having clients or someone who is part of the team - while being remote. 

We may have a full crew on-site - but someone involved can't be on location. 

So we are doing a lot of hybrid shoots.

Whether you need a single camera or larger multi-camera angle with live switching, we're here to design a virtual shoot or virtual event solution to impress everyone (including your boss).

We specialize in projects 5k to 75k.

Production Levels FOR YOU:

Pick the level that you prefer

MOST POPULAR: Full Service / Flying into town: Often times clients fly in with a director or just a sales rep and they want Provid Films to crew their project. We make it easy for you to come into town with just your carry on bag. Everything from the gear to the people to the food - we can handle your experience start to finish.

We've got a great DP & Director along with the crew and gear to make it as easy as a few phone calls and maybe an email or two.

If you have a DP or Director flying in, we offer assistance. (Whether that's freelancers, 2nd camera operators with their own gear, BTS photographer or videographer, or working to get you the gear you need)

SCALED DOWN: Crew Support: Some projects we just offer freelance support - whether that's a teleprompter operator or a local DP / owner / shooter and a sound person. We can adapt to meet your needs on the fly.

SCALED UP:  Strategic Video Leadership: If you love our aesthetic, our approach to projects, and want us to handle a project from start to finish - our full production company can make it easy for you.  From scriptwriting in pre-production to filming on set and finally post production editing, our full-service creative video production company strives to engage the viewers in emotionally compelling ways that help accomplish measurable results.

View Full Profile >

I am a producer, editor, director, writer, host, actor, and coach with 8 years of commercial, narrative, and industrial experience in the midwestern film and theater industry. From radio and social media ads, to event and training videos, to independent web series and short films, I have experience as a line producer, gaffer, production assistant, emcee, series host, and single-camera videographer.

With a background and BA from Bethel University in Acting and Directing Theater Arts, I love to work with actors and help them honestly connect their real lives to their work. Additionally, I work well with youth and children and love working with dialects. I am fluent in Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro, and I offer services in editing, producing, live-stream broadcast, camera operating, and coaching. I specialize in comedic and light-hearted productions. 

I am also a founding member of Drawbridge Collective, a production company and artist community that provides a platform for artists to connect, create, and learn together through filmmaking.
