Told Video is Born

Hi everyone: We have moved our video services, and most of our time nowadays, over to Told Video. Rebecca is still writing a lot of fiction, and has a novel in the works. Please visit us at Told, VimeoLinkedIn , Twitter for Rebecca and Twitter for Told Video to keep up with our current work!


Business Profiles & More

We’ve been busy filming video profiles for several incredible individuals in the Pioneer Valley. Two videos are in the works for Window of Heaven Acupuncture & Yoga, profiling owner and operator Courtney Hill Wulsin. And on our edit station is a new profile of Trevor Healy of the amazing Healy Guitars. Stay tuned for these new videos up soon!

This fall has also brought a multi-camera shoot of the always-entertaining Amherst Live (videos can be seen on their You Tube channel this fall), and some new projects for schools and artists in the region. We love being busy!


Event Coverage Demo

Though the cold winter months seem far away, we’ve had fun re-editing some footage from last winter’s Winter Carnival in Greenfield, MA as a sample reel for our event coverage. Evan Curran of Shiprock and Anchor Dog whipped up some new custom music to go with it. Our new page that highlights all of our compact, custom video offerings can be found here.


Video Profiles for Small Business Owners

We recently completed a short video for Dr. Laila Tomsovic, a naturopathic doctor. This service is a great way to promote your small business, especially if your services are best shown visually (artisans of all kinds), or one-on-one services where your personality is an integral part of your services (personal trainers, doctors, etc). The videos are affordable, attractive, and effective. Click on the photo below to watch the video and check out our new page for information on all of our compact, custom video options.

Student Profiles: Western New England University

I work often with Western New England University, producing their videos for several departments. Recently we were able to work together on a series of short student profiles from their unique first year program. They’ll use these to promote the program and explain it to incoming freshmen. Here are a few samples from the day of shooting.


Nicaraguan Dance Tour

About five years ago I produced a video for Compas De Nicaragua for their Women In Action project. This non-profit organization continues to grow and amaze me – they add new branches yearly, and now offer everything from sustainable living programs in rural Nicaragua to nutrition and micro-loan program for women and children in Managua. They had some new footage to add to their video as they embark on their fourth dance tour in the Eastern U.S., so I’ve been working with them yet again to update their video. Check out their website to see some photos of their traditional Nicaraguan folk dancing, and to watch the older version of the video. They are an incredible group!


New Documentary on Food Marketing

I recently co-produced a documentary with Kate Geis (www.tvgeis.com) about the food industry and food marketing. The film was produced in conjunction with the Media Education Foundation. You can view the trailer that I edited here. That link will also bring you the film’s page on their website, where it will be available for ordering (and hopefully downloading) soon. We met many amazing, dedicated individuals during the research and production process. Their tireless work in the arena of food politics should be celebrated by all of us.

 


New Video Tells the Story of Mothers Who Struggle with PostpartumDepression

I worked closely with the organization MotherWoman this spring to produce a six-minute film for their annual fundraising breakfast. The film told the story of three woman’s struggles with postpartum depression and workplace policies toward mothers, and how MotherWoman works to address these issues. MotherWoman is a powerful group of women doing great work – check them out, and watch an excerpt from the film on their YouTube channel.

Here is another excerpt from the full-length film.

 


Food, food, everywhere!

I’ve been working on an upcoming film about the food industry and food marketing that studies their relationship to the current health crisis from Type 2 diabetes and obesity in the U.S. I’ve been doing a lot of travel, and meeting a great group of people through the interview process! The film is being co-produced with Kate Geis of TVGeis, for the Media Education Foundation.

Photos are coming soon!
