Our goal is to become your long-term partner, and for every project to represent a pivotal moment in our client's success story.
We work with startups and research labs in the STEM space, small and medium sized businesses across virtually all industries, Fortune 500 companies, and world-class educational institutions in Boston, Cambridge and across the globe.
While our primary focus is on media production, whether that be photography or cinematic video, we are more than just a production company that can execute on a concept. We are a team of lifelong learners, and stay on the cutting edge of the marketing landscape so that we can assist our clients with content and rollout strategies, helping you make the very most of your marketing and advertising budgets, and ensure successful campaigns.
We're also obsessed with creating a comfortable, fun, and exciting environment when it comes to being on set with our clients, whether in our studio or on location. We firmly believe that is a privilege to be engaged in this kind of work, and our goal is to create a relaxed, yet confident environment that allows our productions to be extremely effective while simultaneously making talent, especially non-actors feel comfortable on camera.
We love what we do, and that's our sincere commitment to you.
At The Video Garage, our mission is to produce quality, meaningful content that helps our partners achieve their objectives and provide immense value for their budgets. Our goal is to become the media production extension of your company, your "go to" video or photography people, and integrate with your team in a frictionless way.
We believe that telling stories through visual mediums is not only exciting, but also the most powerful way to truly connect with your intended audience and tell your most authentic story.
Everyone—from our internal team and those on our crews—truly loves this work and the process. We're committed to continually raising and exceeding the bar in terms of visual quality, technique, and overall effectiveness.
We are deeply committed to establishing dynamic, diverse, and healthy sets that are fun, engaging, effective, and simply put: deliver content that is best in class.
We truly believe that cultivating environments where the creative team, client, crew, and talent all work together with a crystalized focus is essential to creating content that is authentic and resonates with your audience to achieve your goals.
