Story House is a custom video content company that specializes in marketing and messaging videos for corporate clientele. We work with municipalities & government leaders, their contractors (engineers, communications teams, etc.), tourism executives and more to deliver television quality content that resonates with their audiences.
Every brand has a truly unique story. Let us tell yours.
We’ve been busy! The principals at Story House—Brian Berusch and Lance Jeffery—have been jetting back and forth between Hawaii and the mainland throughout 2019 producing national and regional video content. Our combined 40+ years experience of content creation across multiple sectors (scripted and live-action television, advertising, marketing and sales materials, event promotion, publishing, and social media) has proven useful to dozens of clients. We consider ourselves fortunate to have been chosen by numerous business and civic leaders this year; and we’re excited at the work to come in 2020.
As winter drew to a close last February, Brian produced numerous spots for regional leaders in New York’s Hudson Valley. The region is blossoming as a hub for film production (the largest post-production tax incentives in the country), as well as tech start ups and manufacturing. The Ulster County executive tapped Story House to produce numerous pieces, including these: Filmmaking in the Hudson Valley, (Peter Buffet’s sustainable farm project) The Farm Hub, a study of Equitable Development with The City of Kingston and non-profit developer RUPCO, and numerous real estate and development spots for various clients.
On the West Coast, Lance was busy directing production for Gene Simmons and the KISS crew as they embarked on their “Final Tour.”
Finally, he was Director of Photography on a speculative show featuring an NBA player (MVP) and a visit to Africa.
As we launched into Spring: Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell and his team reached out to Story House Hawaii to produce the opening video for the U.S. Conference of Mayors, which aired to a rousing applause at the Hilton Hawaiian Village opening ceremony in June. Fun fact: We were able to utilize historic audio footage of President John F. Kennedy’s last visit to Hawaii (1967) when he attended the last Conference of Mayors in the Aloha State. His daughter, Caroline Kennedy, opened the Conference this year, and introduced our video. [continued, right ––>]
Mayor Caldwell and other civic leaders in Honolulu had seen a piece in 2018 Story House produced on the Kailua-Kaneohe Wastewater Treatment facility. Working with nearly a dozen engineers, city planners, architects and community leadership, we were able to produce a comprehensive video that showcased each of their role and significance.
Summer brought travels to Maui for Story House, where we worked on fresh content for the Maui Film Festival, the visitor’s bureau, and numerous hotel & resort clients. It’s become VERY clear that the immediate need for hotels, resorts and travel partners is short, persuasive videos—between 10 and 30 seconds each—that are able to show the beauty of the island, demonstrate a unique experience, drive the viewer to click/book, and all the while tell a complete story. We’ve been thrilled to deliver dozens of videos that check all these boxes: Another reason Story House continues to thrive in the share economy era.
In September we released a very special and important video in collaboration with the Anderson Center for Autism and the Village of Rhinebeck, N.Y.
As recent as this November, Story House has been hard at work producing content that showcases a new building and communications command center in downtown Honolulu. We’ve been privileged to work with some of the leading technology and communications engineering firms in the country—as well as in Hawaii—on this special project. Involved are Mayor Caldwell, Governor Ige, and multiple civic agencies, including Honolulu Police, Fire, Ocean Safety, the Department of Transportation, and the Department of Federal Highways.
