Content creation for online audiences. 2 million+ views. 500+ videos. Yes, I directed "that" video. TWVS offers a full-service spectrum of video production, from concept to delivery. Unlike many virtual providers, I own all my own video/audio gear and have a brick and mortar studio located in the renowned arts district of Minneapolis. Minneapolis is the fourth-largest commercial production city in the United States. With over twenty years of experience working and developing with the industry as it has transformed, I bring a sharp and creative eye to whatever we produce. Our network of contractors contains the best voice-over, animation and musical artists in our region. Our local and agency work keeps us very busy, as our YouTube demonstrates, but I keep my eye on Elance for projects that look like an interesting opportunity.
