Everyone loves a movie. Google and Facebook, especially, give movies special attention when they share websites. A modern, stylish movie connects businesses and craftspeople with audiences. This day and age no longer needs the flashy commercials of the past. Today's videos combine interviews with stunning imagery. They are liked, shared, and discovered for months (even years) after the initial posting.
Today, you will not need to learn camera techniques, figure out how to stabilize shaky video, understand software, and debug social media in order to have your movie. Nevada County now has a professional and dedicated movie-maker that wants to see local businesses and craftspeople thrive.

Event Highlight Reel
Are you hosting an event that could bring attention to your brand or business? Would you like to share your event with dynamic images, then see long term returns on that event's movie?
Four years ago, we posted a movie to YouTube about a local Children's Festival. It continues to see hundreds of views each year in the month leading up to the event as people find it while internet surfing for information about the festival. Movies live long after a social media post or photo is buried in a newsfeed.
Giovanni attends your event (up to two hours), films important moments, then creates a 3-5 minute highlights movie that inspires your online audience. These films are usually shared by anyone appearing at the event (bands and artists), which leads to more online sharing.
Give your event a movie that showcases all the hard work that you put into planning and organizing. From concerts to street fairs, he documents all the best memories.
Social Media Consultation
Your movies need an audience. Giovanni is passionately curious about social media, including Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and more. He has successful business pages and accounts across multiple platforms. He wants your movie to be successful. If getting your movie posted seems like an enormous challenge, he would love to help. He is available for coaching, account setup, questions, and/or planning. He is the rare personality that is both tech-savvy and personable. We all want Nevada County businesses to be successful! ...including our own :)

Last but not least. Community. I love my community and will often film events at no cost for organizations or events that transcend monetary value. Simply because I feel compelled to capture the moment to share with others and hope to inspire a sense of joy or wonderment. Such was the film below. An ugly event that ignited a movement of love and appreciation for one another.
