Van Ness Creative is a full-service film and video production company. Meaning: if you need us to do everything (concept development, writing, casting, crewing, directing, shooting, sound design, motion graphics, editing, grading, finishing, mastering, compressing, dvd and blu-ray authoring, posting to the web and iPad or cell phone), we can; if you only need some of that, we'll enjoy collaborating with you and your team.
We shoot and edit high definition video for both 2D and 3D productions. If you want to see examples of our 3D work, contact us.
We create television commercials and programming, corporate communications (including recruiting, training, trade show and marketing programs), and (happily) lots of work for non-profits.
We believe that the most effective communication is more than good technology and technique. A good program must touch the passions, awaken an appreciation for what is beautiful, and inspire a person to think and act differently. The best communication changes people for the better.
We co-own CinemaSalem, a vibrant movie theater and live-performance venue in downtown Salem, Massachusetts, which allows us to showcase the world's best mainstream, independent, and art films for sophisticated local film lovers, and present breakthrough musicians, actors, comedians, and dancers on our stage. CinemaSalem also represents one of the world's largest screening rooms for productions on which we collaborate, and a wonderful soundstage for theater-oriented shooting locations.
Each spring, we collaborate with a team of passionate volunteers to present the Salem Film Fest, one of America's leading all-documentary film festivals.
