The one-room office was small and sparsely furnished. There were just a couple of us with one phone, a rented camera and no editing system. But we had Journalism degrees, TV news backgrounds and ad agency experience. We also had talent and determination. So we took our story to prospective clients and did what we said we would do for them: produce results.
Twenty-some years (and a lot of hard work) later, we’re the dozen or so writers, producers, designers, editors, shooters—the storytellers—of MotionMasters.
We not only own a fine editing system now, we own a couple of them! The cameras (the latest in HD technology) also are ours.
We tell stories because it’s the most appealing and effective method for training or motivating employees, encouraging donations or convincing people to buy your products and services. We’ll demonstrate the power of storytelling through commercials, brochures, fliers, documentaries, educational videos, corporate video presentations and more. We’ll also help you unleash the power of the story to reach your target audience and carry out your strategic objectives.
We’ve won for the stories we’ve created for our clients, but we believe that achieving results for them is the greatest reward. And we’ll do whatever it takes to get the story that produces those results. We’ve circled the globe, suspended ourselves from airplanes, trekked steep terrain, burrowed deep into the West Virginia coal mines and explored space-age composite materials to tell our clients’ stories. Our screen tales have aired on PBS, CSPAN, ESPN, Inside Edition, America’s Funniest People and The Outdoor Channel. The magazines that we’ve written, designed and produced have been printed in quantities in excess of a million copies and have been distributed up and down the Eastern Seaboard and across the nation as well.
When we receive a call from the White House, we know the President is coming to town and that we’ve been assigned to set the lights and prep for the media entourage. We’re also extremely proud of the work we’ve done for non-profits such as Habitat for Humanity, the Susan G. Komen Foundation of WV, the Sullivan Foundation and the YMCA.
Technology changes … but there are certain storytelling attributes that are never outdated: quality, value, creativity, clarity and staying power. Count on us to tell your story in a way that people will want to hear it, see it and act on it.
