Provid Films is a top rated production company in the Twin Cities area of Minneapolis / St Paul MN.

Our goal is to bring your vision to life. 

See Our Work Here

We have the production crew and gear you need if your goal is to capture 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. We follow all laws and rules regarding updated CDC guidelines for Covid 19.

-

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 for You Off-Site

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

The new normal is having clients like you off-site while still being able to talk with and see the shots live.

Whether you need a single camera or large multi-camera angles 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 50k to 5k.

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.

Zoe Esser

View Full Profile >

Hello! My name is Zoe Esser and I am originally from South Saint Paul Minnesota.

With a Bachelor of Arts in Film Production and a double minor in Communication Studies and Entertainment Industry Business, I am looking forward to taking my interpersonal and organizational skills on the road to the next journey I may find.

I enjoy all the creative aspects of film, but more so the office side of things such as organizing schedules, creating call sheets, lining scripts, casting, etc. but I am open and willing to learn and do everything! I also enjoy art direction and set production.

I am used to producing and I think it brings out the most enjoyment for me in this medium because I find it very fulfilling to find a story, create its world and fill in the details, organizing the people, and important aspects as they occur. I also love being on set and problem-solving things that fall under the creative of technical categories and of course meeting new people!

If there is any way in which I can help you from anything to an extra set of hands as a PA to a Producer organizing your whole production, please don't hesitate to reach out! Thank you for your time.
