See Our Work Here

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

Adapting to the new normal, we've now implemented our Safety Protocol based on CDC guidelines for Covid. 

Things 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

2020 we've seen a huge shift in the number of live streaming projects. Whether you need a single camera or large multi-camera angles with live switching, we're here to design a virtual event solution to meet your needs. We handle projects under 6 figures.

2) Support: If you want to source a local crew in Minnesota, we can support your project (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. Available for projects all over the US as well if you're looking for a consistent look. 

3) 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 with production to editing and revisions in post-production, our full-service creative video production company strives to engage the viewers in emotionally compelling ways that help accomplish measurable results.

Travis Higgins

View Full Profile >

My name is Travis Higgins and I'm a Cinematographer & Camera Operator based in Minneapolis/St. Paul. I'm a DJI Ronin 2 Owner/Operator with both Red Monstro 8K and Sony FS7 4K camera packages available.

I have a degree in video production from the University of Minnesota and have had the opportunity to travel the world doing what I love. Ranging from a broadcast DP shooting for networks including HGTVAnimal PlanetCBS, and Nickelodeon; to a Cinematographer hiking through different parts of Africa for The Outdoor Channel, I pride myself on being multifaceted in whatever new opportunity I find myself in. Whether it be commercial, documentary, or narrative work, my easy going attitude and affinity for working as a team, has led to numerous successful productions. 

In my free time, I'm typically trying to stay active outside in any way that I can - whether that be hitting the golf course, playing hockey, or just spending time with family and friends.
