A Brief History

Orris Productions was created in 2015 with the intent to provide outstanding customer service in the video production field. Interpersonal communication is critical to ensuring a Visual project manifests in the way it’s intended and serves its purpose.

 

Since opening, Orris Productions has expanded the team to include more talented Cinematographers, Editors, and Producers. Doubling our business nearly every year, we keep taking on larger projects with continued success. Our recent Video Marketing Campaign for “HoverGlide’s Kickstarter” was picked up on Social Media by big names like “Now This”, “Cheddar”, “CNN”, and many others. This campaign generated massive success for HoverGlide, who currently has almost $500,000 in pledges.

 

Every year Orris Productions expands our skillsets, toolsets, and quality services offered. Acquiring the FAA Part 107 Aerial Pilot Certificate in 2017,             Orris Productions added high quality Aerial Cinematography to many of our recent projects. Blackmagic Cameras have joined the family making 4k & RAW easy options. The renovated Color Grading Suite features a 10bit color accurate monitor, 64gb RAM on a powerful custom PC, a Tangent Control Panel for grading precision, and 18% Gray walls for color       accuracy. Our ever expanding services are              scale-able to any project's needs.
