So, you've gotten some video produced for your company's website or TV advertisement. That's great! Nothing generates leads or engages an audience like video. But are you getting premium video production or are you just getting video production? Premium video production gives you all the benefits of video plus prestige and substance.

Dollar Energy Fund TV Advertisement

Dollar Energy Fund is a 501 (c) 3 organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life for households experiencing hardships by providing utility assistance and other services that lead to self-sufficiency.

We developed this TV advertisement to tell the story children who can't study because they're too cold and to illustrate how those dollar bills really impact people. Checking the box on your utility bill makes a big difference!


Premium video production has certain qualities that make it more valuable than regular video production. Among other things, premium video production tells a coherent story, has consistent branding and quality throughout, blends into other marketing strategies and doesn't require you to babysit the production company. When you get premium video production, you can feel it. Everything clicks and you feel good about it. People complement you on how amazing your new videos look, they ask you for your secret and, of course, your audience sees and understands your story.

Pre-visualization is the use of computer animation to visualize something before it actually exists. Often it's used with architecture like the example presented here. This animation was developed as part of a fund raising video for the West Virginia Sports Museum and Hall of Fame, so we needed to go beyond just creating a true-to-life representation of the final building. We needed imagery that would fire the imagination and get people excited!

This video contains two clips from a long form video The Media Center produced for the Education Alliance. The entire video is about 12 minutes long and is designed to be played for community organizations. It explores the causes of dropouts with interviews of students and community leaders and acts as a launching point for discussions of how to help.

Many thanks to Julie Pratt and Emily Schoen for giving us the opportunity to work on this important project. It was our great pleasure to work with such caring and dedicated people.

"Single Member Districts" - WV Chamber

The WV Chamber came to The Media Center with a bit of a quandary. How do you illustrate the uneven distribution of WV delegates, compare that to the rest of the United States where all but one other state has even distribution of delegates, explain that nine counties don't have a delegate, point out that if this isn't changed now then it'll be 10 years before the issues can be revisited and give a call to action all in an attention grabbing 30 seconds?

We put our heads together with our friends at The WV Chamber and Gallagher Consulting and developed this spot.
