creative services


Every person has a story. But telling memorable stories with motion pictures requires a unique set of skills—both creative and technical. You can’t simply write the words on a page and call it good. You must think in pictures, mold your message out of these images and find a flow that fits your tale. In the drive to create effective movies, you need a roadmap that will guide you through the various bumps and turns, takes and re-takes along the way.

Our talented producers, directors, photographers and editors view every project as a creative journey. We begin with good old-fashioned research, about you, your story, your product, company or program. We collaborate with our clients and usher projects through the entire production process, from first concept to final edit. Our level of creative involvement is up to you—we can help steer your creative vision, or if you prefer, we can drive the show. In the end, your program will not only tell your story but show it, in a meaningful way that your audience will remember.

Field Production


At Wide Eye Productions, we’re on a professional mission to eliminate the phrase “fix it in post.” We pride ourselves on gathering powerful, beautiful, relevant images. To that end, we offer top-of-the-line field equipment with experienced crews to match. Because if you don’t look good, we don’t look good, and we’re only happy when we look fantastic.
