visual storytelling

team of passionate filmmakers (est. 2007)

A film is never really good unless the camera is in the eye of a poet.

Orson Welles

Votary Media is a team of artists, visionaries and filmmakers, all focused on crafting compelling stories with eye-catching visuals. We set ourselves apart by not only looking to craft beauty into our work, but finding the soul of the stories we tell.

Whether it’s a 30 sec commercial or a feature length documentary, we try to practice what we preach, which is that every story should be told with authenticity & excellence. We not only want to help you reach your target audience through what you do, but engage them with why you do it.


Film Production

We realize that when looking to make a film, it can be challenging to specify what you’re individual needs may be, which is why we try to clearly list every kind of film we offer. This list is a good overview, but honestly, what really compares to having a real life, sit down conversation?

BRAND STORY

Cinematic Documentary style with a focus on why a company does what it does.

MINI DOCUMENTARY

A short documentary about an inspiring story. Usually 2-to-10 Minutes, this type of film is very helpful for showing the heart of a company’s culture and the good it’s attempting to do in the world.

FULL DOCUMENTARY

Anywhere from 30-120 Minutes, this long form style is best used to show the truth-in-story. This can be powerful for a brand or non-profit to help sponsor when it played a truthful part of the story.

SHORT FILM

A scripted short film designed to emotionally engage an intended marketing with an message aligned with company culture and beliefs.

MUSIC VIDEO

From live performance’s to short narrative music films.

COMMERCIAL

A scripted 30 or 60 second spot designed to engage a particular market with a particular message.

TESTIMONIAL

Often a mix of docu-style interviews and supporting B-roll, this type of video is designed to show real people with real emotions about the subject matter.

ANIMATED EXPLAINER

Sometimes the easiest way of conveying the solution to a problem is with a short animation.

TRAINING

As the name suggests, training videos are used as material to teach a class, workshop, or most frequently used inside a company to teach employees.

EVENTS

One of our broadest categories. Events range from College Graduations, to Work Anniversaries, which can range in length from a catchy highlights reels to a long form capture of entire events.
