In the era of “fake-news” alerts and legions of political fact-checkers tasked with determining the truthfulness of any given statement, I’ve often reflected on why falsehoods still continue to be perpetuated and believed by the masses. One need not … Read More →

Jonathan is a passionate creator who combines personal integrity with an eye for beauty and detail to produce content that moves the world.
Who I am, and why I want to help you succeed.
From the very beginning, my work in this field has been an expression of my inner desire to expand well-being in the world. That desire leads me to seek collaborations with people and organizations who are motivated primarily by that same intention. This alignment of values is foundational in the work I do.
I am driven to focus my talents, abilities and attention on helping my clients succeed because I believe that their success ultimately helps create a world we can all be delighted to share. I’ve witnessed the power this medium has to move people— there is something almost magical about it. In partnership with my clients, we are able to harness that force for good.
Why invest in quality video content?
It is no secret that incorporating video into a marketing strategy increases visibility. Marketing data shows that it boosts internet search rankings, extends the time users spend on our websites, increases email open and click-through rates, and outperforms all other content on social media in driving engagement.
But there is a more intuitive and more important explanation for the power video wields: It is the most effective way to tell and distribute stories in our time.
Storytelling has *always* been fundamental in passing on ideas. The stories we tell are better remembered and more fully integrated than any other presentation of information. If we seek to leave an impression and make an impact in today's digital environment, utilizing the power of video to tell our stories is essential.
We live in a world saturated with information. The challenge we face is in finding a way to cut through the noise so that important stories are heard— stories that inspire, stories that educate, stories that empower people to join with us in the creation of a better world. I have been honored to work with clients who are committed to telling stories that merit our attention.
Video packages for a variety of needs:
When you partner with Reelboy, you work directly with me. I own and operate my equipment and perform every function in the production process from concept to completion. Although rare, I do hire and manage team members when necessary to achieve the specific goals of a project.
The decision to work primarily alone aligns with my style, which is observational and unobtrusive so as to allow things to unfold in a natural, intimate way. It also helps control costs which can easily be inflated by large crews and equipment rentals.
I know that Reelboy will not be a match for every project, which is why I ask prospective clients to complete the project intake form. The two things I will not compromise in my work are integrity and quality. The information you provide will allow me to guarantee that I can deliver both.

I regularly schedule projects in 3 locations across the US. If your project lies outside these regular service areas, however, I am happy to arrange travel to your location.
Regular Service Areas:
- New York City
- Washington D.C.
- Salt Lake City
Full Day Production – $1250
Half Day Production – $850
Post-Production – $125 hr
Rates include Reelboy’s professional camera, lighting, and sound equipment package.
Travel beyond regular services areas and other additional project-specific expenses are not included.
Much like determining the value of a home, the estimated cost of any given project will be based on a number of important factors unique to every project.
The information you provide on the project intake form will allow me to determine a rough estimate. A more accurate estimate will be determined during pre-production and planning.
Generally, a fully produced video starts at $1500. The average investment made in a Reelboy production is $3000.
