In the era of "alternative facts," fake-news alerts and legions of political fact-checkers, I’ve often reflected on how empirically false information can continue to find resonance at such an astonishing rate. Facts today, it would seem, are only … Read More →

How Reelboy Will Elevate Your Voice
Define the Strategy
Video works. A thoughtful consideration of project goals and marketing strategies will ensure it works for you.
Create Quality Content
Video is an art. Each project is carefully crafted as a gift for the attention offered by your captive audience.
Measure the Results
Video evokes response. The application of effective tools will allow you to evaluate and magnify your voice.
Jonathan is a passionate creator who combines personal integrity with an eye for detail and beauty to produce content that moves the world.
Who I am, and why I want to help you succeed.
From the very beginning, my video production work 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 video 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 video has to move people— it is a certain kind of magic. My clients allow me 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 drives more social media engagement than any other form of content.
But there is a much more simple and intuitive 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 important ideas. The stories we tell are better remembered and more easily shared than any other presentation of information. If we want to leave an impression and attract attention 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 cutting 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 utilizing the power of video to tell 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 video equipment and often 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 production crews and equipment rentals.
I know that Reelboy will not be a match for every video project, which is why I ask prospective clients to complete the project intake survey. 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.

Project Cost Estimate
Much like determining the value of a home, the estimated cost of any given video will be based on a number of important factors unique to every project.
The information you provide on the project intake survey 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.
