Branded Documentary Shorts

The EMMY™ award winning team at BFV creates engaging documentary-style branded films. We’ve had the honor of working with some impressive clients and we would love to add you to that list.

Our Approach - A Different Way of Thinking...


GETTING YOUR MESSAGE HEARD

What makes us different also makes us better. Unlike most commercial production houses, we focus almost entirely on documentary style brand films. We are storytellers using documentary to convey your message and enrich the viewer. With the ubiquity of video today, it’s harder than ever to stand above the crowd and get your message heard. Gone are the days of posting a video using your webcam. Viewers today expect a polished, professional quality video that not only informs but entertains as well.

THE HUMAN ELEMENT

Documentary film is the most powerful and persuasive tool available that can be used to inform and create awareness. By focusing on the human element of your story, BFV forms a connection for you with your audience.

KEEP IT SHORT

The simpler the message, the more likely it is to be watched, remembered and shared. Online video works best as a short message, that is why the majority of the films we produce now are under five minutes long. We approach our documentary projects with an emphasis on finding the beating heart of your story.

Tell your story. Connect with your audience.
