Storyboard Films produced a client testimonial (view here) and a recruiting video for us at Object Partners. They exceeded expectations, were available with short notice, and the end product has been well received! Great professional quality and the crew is fun, creative and easy to work with. I recommend them highly.

We needed a way to share and promote the complex story of apprenticeship in aging services. Jeff and his team were outstanding to work with, taking our goals and ideas and simplifying them into a beautifully created video for our program. I was impressed by his flexibility, fast production and patience with our ideas. The final result left us with three exceptional videos, which accomplished exactly what we set out to do. I cannot recommend Jeff enough--we will absolutely call him first for our future video needs!

On a fundraising campaign video with historic and current relevance for the organization Storyboard Films was able to thread together both to create great impact and super results. Having shot beautiful B-roll, and both in studio and location interviews my only concern was we had to much good material to work with. By deciding what made sense to use Storyboard really delivered.

Thanks Jeff, and team, for your amazing work on the FamilyMeans video! You pieced together four heartfelt, yet different stories in a seamless way to share how FamilyMeans is here to help people when they need it most. Great job!

I'm a marketing executive for a healthcare technology company located on the West Coast. I hired Storyboard Films to film a client testimonial in the Twin Cities. It was an absolute pleasure working with them and the end product was phenomenal. One person on our team dubbed it "a work of art." The whole process was well-organized and ran smoothly, from initial concept through final editing. I was particularly impressed with how at-ease they made the speakers during filming, eliciting heartfelt testimonial that really told the story. I wish they were closer to San Diego so I could work with them more often.

When our organization set out to make our first professional video, we didn’t know what to expect in terms of cost, time needed for completion or the exact direction our video should take. After meeting with several local video production companies, we were thoroughly impressed with Jeff and Scott from Storyboard Films. They explained the process very well and their pricing was easy to understand and very competitive. Additionally, they seemed genuinely interested in not only making a great video for us, but also in understanding what it is our organization does and how we operate from the inside out. Also, they placed more value on a creative understanding of our organization and our key demographics, rather than employing the same-old formulaic marketing tactics. The result was not one, but two great videos Storyboard ended up producing for us that have already garnered a great response and will continue to tell our story and enhance our brand for years to come. Thanks Storyboard!

I hired Storyboard Films to capture a live event attended by over 1,000 people. They offered helpful suggestions, and responded quickly throughout the process. Our final video captured the event speakers, crowd, and overall energy perfectly.
Amy Wartick ARRM - Communications Director
When we hired Storyboard Films to make a publicity video for our sustainable farming project, we didn't know what the story was we wanted to tell, or how we wanted to tell it -- all we knew was that we wanted a great video. These guys nailed it. Jeff very quickly understood who we are and what we do, and created a plan we felt comfortable with. The shoot was professional but also a lot of fun. Most important, the video itself exceeded all of our expectations -- gorgeous photography, great production, and just great storytelling. I can't recommend them enough.

As a Fundraising Event Planner, I have had the pleasure of working with Jeff Brandt and Storyboard Films on three separate non-profit videos. As a result, I have been convinced that Jeff has the proven ability to tell an authentic and heart-felt story to educate, move and inspire giving. At the beginning of each project, Jeff met with the Executive Director and me to discuss ideas and ultimately set the framework for the story we wanted to tell. Each time I was impressed with Jeff’s ideas and skillful guidance, leading us to consider options we hadn’t thought of on our own and that would simply make the video better. During filming Jeff was professional, easy going and kind to everyone he interviewed from board members to students to clients receiving services. I am about to begin working with Jeff on a fourth video and am looking forward to utilizing his expertise to tell yet another very important mission-filled story. I highly recommend Storyboard Films!
Kristin Kroll Fundraising Event Consultant & Planner
We hired Storyboard Films to create two key videos for our firm’s new website, and do it on a fairly short turn-around. I could not have asked for a better product or process. I was impressed with the ease of working with them to develop the story we wanted to share without relying on scripting, They were able to complete the shooting in multiple cities and put together the final results quickly and efficiently. I enormously value the level of passion and professionalism that Jeff and his crew brought to the project, and I was extremely happy with the final results. For this type of video work, I will return to work with Storyboard Films without hesitation.

We hired Storyboard Films to create 2 important videos for The Anderson Center. Jeff and his crew did an amazing job. As a Producer, Jeff has a gift for asking the right questions and getting to a story that is compelling and speaks to people's hearts. I could have not been more pleased with the finish product and it exceeded all of the organization's expectations.

I hire Storyboard Films because they are fantastic collaborators. They always add creative value to any vision or idea I have and find a way to create a great visual story. Simply put, they get it. And I have a blast working with them.

We hired Storyboard Films to add a video component to an updated, professional services website. They were very professional, easy to work with, and the final video was exactly what we hoped for.

It was a thrill to work with Jeff and the team at Storyboard Films on a video for our non-profit. We now share a beautifully crafted story with potential donors and volunteers. We could not have asked for a more eloquent and moving portrayal of our mission. Valley Outreach runs a food shelf, clothing closet and emergency assistance fund, working with people experiencing stressful, and often, demoralizing, living situations. Capturing the personal poverty stories of two clients who use our services, and making those stories compelling and relatable, was no easy task.The storytelling needed to be respectful of the clients. It needed to illustrate how life can dictate circumstances. It needed to show the very human and very raw angles of adversity without triggering a pity party. We wanted viewers to come away with, “I get it, I understand. And I know where Valley Outreach fits in.”In under 5 minutes, the story unfolds through emotional, poignant moments that have you thinking, “That could be me.” When a story becomes personal, when you identify with it, it becomes powerful.The crew at Storyboard is phenomenal. Throughout the production process, we enjoyed a highly interactive and upbeat dynamic; a well-balanced mix of their expertise and our objectives. Their exacting attention to detail is extraordinary (lighting, sound, enough “B” role), yet that very technical side never gets in the way of their vision and imagination for the end product. The team is professional, responsive, friendly, creative and original. We had an outstanding experience with Storyboard Films and highly recommend them for your project.
