Directing Documentary – Part 2 – Talent

I like to say that real people are ‘talent’ enough. It’s a neat line to throw into treatments where we don’t have the budget for agency-represented talent.  This line is a bit tricky to walk for documentary-style video production. You’re working with real people who may not have any on-camera experience, trying to keep things […]

Shoots Are Better With the HW Van

There’s little in this world that I love as much as the Hidden Woods camera van. When I’m driving it, I’m home. I step in, slide my wallet into the door for safe keeping, and toss my full sized Nalgene in one of the extra large cup holders. I keep a deep stash of my […]

Meet Maya: The Newest Addition to Our Team

Growing up, my dream job aspirations ranged from the President to a Britney Spears’ backup dancer. It wasn’t until 8th grade when our class had to choose a job to shadow I had even thought about an actual career path. That was when I decided to job shadow my local news station’s female anchor, and […]

The New Office

As much as Pat and Brandon loved getting Dave out of bed in the morning, there came a time when working out of his kitchen and living room was no longer sustainable. That’s why we made the decision last summer to move Hidden Woods Media into a dedicated office space. We were lucky enough to […]
