"Mission Pictures researched, wrote, produced, and edited five tremendous videos for parents, and provided rich video content for nine more. Videos for parents can be preachy, but they managed to hit the perfect tone. Our affiliate schools keep asking for more. Arne and Shane are truly an inspired team with a stream of creative ideas and seemingly unending patience."
- Shira Lee Katz, Common Sense Media
At Mission Pictures, we are more than just videographers--we give you a complete package that can make a great video a valuable part of your overall mission. Our specialty is finding the heart of your story and then scaling to the needs and resources of your non-profit or company. Based in San Francisco's Mission neighborhood, we're tapped into the cutting edge of technology and good works. We don't just bring our creativity and experience in video to bear, but also our knowledge of and passion for the non-profit and sustainability sectors. Our experience producing and distributing a feature documentary ("Girls Rock!") about a nonprofit that played theatrically in over 90 cities gives us an exciting perspective on moving audiences to action.
We can make everything from a quick video for a specific event up to a longer-term documentary that includes big picture and strategic consultations, multiple shoots and multiple deliverables. There's nothing quite like Mission Pictures for serving your mission.
