Video Portraits Bay Area

Are you a maker, artist, craftsperson or content creator? Would it be helpful to have a short video document that shares who you are, what you’re doing in the world, how you came to this work, and why is this important to you?

I’d love to help you tell your story with a short video that you narrate.

My name is Marilyn McNeal and I’m a small scale, creative video maker specializing in personal video portraits that capture your story.

WHAT I OFFER

+ A video portrait of you, your product, brand, project or small business
+ A video portrait of a beloved family member, friend or co-worker
+ A deep interest in helping you capture and share your story
+ Experience editing video and audio footage together into a compelling narrative
+ Flexibility and support throughout the process

PROCESS

  • Before we meet, I’ll encourage you to jot down key elements of your story.
  • Then we’ll meet and I’ll record the audio of you sharing your story.
  • Next, I’ll shoot video of you working in your studio, home or office space.
  • I will edit the audio and video together into a 2 – 3 minute portrait that you can put on your website, share on social media or just keep for personal reflection.
  • I can make shorter Instagram and Twitter friendly clips.

OUTCOMES

  • My goal is to capture you doing the work that you love without making you acknowledge the camera unless you want to.
  • The result is a short mini documentary that is a snapshot of what you are doing and what you value in the world.

NEXT STEPS

Type in your information in the short form below the examples and I’ll email you and give you a call.

WHAT’S YOUR STORY?

Here are four classic portrait styles that may be of interest to you.

ARTIST PROFILE / MAKER STORY

Are you a maker, artist, craftsperson or content creator? I’d love to help you tell your story with a short video that you narrate.

PROMOTIONAL RELEASE

Do you have a book, web series, album or event that you’d like to let folks know about? I can help you immerse fans in your process and get them excited about what you are offering.

YEAR IN REVIEW

Bringing people along with you as you review your activities over a period of time is a powerful personal exercise and a very effective way to keep your audience feeling connected to your work. The resulting videos can easily be included on your website, shared on social media, and linked to in email newsletters.

SHORT DOCUMENTARY

A short documentary allows you to build a context for your message in a short timeframe. I can help you define your audience and identify your key ideas and desired outcome. Together, we’ll work out a storyboard then use footage and narration to tell your story.
