Miller/Datri Entertainment Video Production

About

Co-founded by a Forbes 30Under30 honoree in marketing, and the former CEO of the American Advertising Federation, we are a video production studio built for now, with a relentless commitment to results.

Video projects too often under-deliver because they are not produced in a way that will maximize the video’s effectiveness on the places where it ultimately will live.  

We fix this problem by applying our award-winning experience working with the industry’s best content creators and video marketers, expertise in video distribution, and understanding of the inputs (such as length+format, look+feel, technical specs) at each stage of the production process that will maximize achievement of the video’s goals.

And we marry this method with indie film-caliber artistry in order to deliver content that is not only effective but cutting-edge and culturally-impactful.

Our sole mission is to maximize results from your video investment, and we have a demonstrated track record of doing so with this unique and differentiated approach.

  • Award-winning experience:
    Our work in video content has resulted in Forbes 30Under30 honors for our founding team. We’ve worked for and with the industry’s best video creators & marketers. We know the recipe for successful content.
  • Creativity with polish:
    We bring the perfect blend of professionalism and creativity. Our clients breathe easy, knowing that they and their brand are in the right hands.
  •  Indie-film caliber creative & production:
    Our movie studio has received critical acclaim for its cutting-edge storytelling and technical expertise, which we apply to all content we produce.
  •  Relationships & Networks:
    Through our differentiated network and set of relationships, we access the best locations, partners, and talent — and preferred rates to keep all of your $ on screen.
  • Saving you time:
    We recognize you are busy and on every project, we take pride in making our clients’ lives easier, saving them time, and going the extra mile for them.

We apply our award-winning approach and experience to maximize results (customers, sales, etc.) for our clients, and ensure they get the most from every $ invested. We’ve geared our entire approach to do that, including:

  • Marketing & distribution strategy
  • Creative, scripting, storyboarding
  • Talent
  • Camera, lighting, & sound equipment+techniques
  • Sound design & music
  • Editing, timing, & transitions
  • Coloring and use of special effects
  • Brand integration

By putting marketing & distribution strategy at the forefront of all stages of the production process — not after it’s finished, as is usually the case — we make the following possible for our clients:

  • Maximizing video performance on mobile and social media.
  • Over-performing on organic views, resulting in more awareness/sales without having to pay for it.
  • Ensuring creative and concepts are in line with the topics that your audience loves most from the get-go.
  • Avoiding costly video edits and re-shoots.
  • Improving engagement with your customers and target audience.
