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.
