Testimonials

“We run a small in-house communications shop and rely solely on external partners for design and media content. Drew worked with our team to develop concepts and produce a web series telling our story with authenticity and beauty. Drew could hear and see my team's vision. The resulting deliverables were a quantum leap in quality over previous materials we had produced for advancement and enrollment. Three years out, we still use the pieces as they were so capably produced.”

Cliff Smith, Vice President for Communications, Erskine College


"Tried & True continually proves to be of value to our organization by quickly executing compelling short-form content for the web and other digital platforms. Drew is adept with cutting-edge video technology—including the use of drones and aerial cinematography. With minimal oversight and supervision, they have delivered exciting and dynamic edits that absolutely represent our organizational voice. I recommend Drew's services most highly.”

Eric Berman, President & CEO of Nomedium

"Drew has been an integral part of our growth and success in both tennis and now as we expand into new sports...

Drew’s videos for PlaySight – whether it is conducting interviews with top pros and coaches, recording on-court training tutorials, or creating comprehensive videos for our brand, have helped us to generate sales leads, investor attention, and general marketplace buzz. It is not a surprise that our global footprint of SmartCourts – our main product – has increased significantly since we began working with Drew back in 2015."

Jeff Angus, Marketing Manager, PlaySight

"Over the last several years our agency has worked with Drew on a number of projects for our clients; from B-to-B to consumer, and he’s delivered above and beyond every time. He has a way of working with the real people in these videos that puts them at ease, and coaxes the best reactions we could hope for; topped only by his mad editing skills!”

Karen Bennetts, Owner of Little Red Bird

Frequently Asked Questions


Why use Tried & True?

We are all about strategic partnerships. We do our best to completely understand your brand before launching into production. The content will be of the highest quality and should authentically represent your unique corporate voice. We are focused, down to earth and will customize the videos for the intended audience.




What kinds of videos do you make?

Our corporate and sports work is often short, well-produced video intended for social media. Our objective is to find new and inventive ways to get viewers to linger longer on a video autoplaying in their smartphone feed. We can also produce short narrative films, traditional commercials, tutorials and interview based documentary pieces. We cover press conferences, multi-camera events, conventions, internal corporate messaging etc. If we neglected to mention the type of video you need, chances are that we have made something similar. Please ask to see a work sample similar to what you envision.



Do you control all aspects of your projects from start to finish?

Typically yes. Keeping everything in-house from pre-production to the final touches is what we prefer. We want our clients to have a unified experience and an entirely cohesive deliverable. With that said, T&T staff and equipment can be made available for hire. Our Inspire 2 is the best cinema drone available. Our Freefly MOVI camera stabilizer and operator are also popular with external productions.




Can we film more than one video and/or make multiple versions from the same content?

Absolutely. It’s all about pre production planning. But once we have filmed the long form video, shorter clips can absolutely be created. Shooting in bulk always helps the budget.



How long does it take?

It can vary. Depending on your needs, we can expedite production. Multiple times a year we find ourselves delivering world-class videos on same day turnarounds. It is completely possible to film and edit quickly, but the production costs are far greater due to the demand and necessary specialized labor.



How do we get our video?

We deliver the final cut via Dropbox, or on an encrypted hard drive depending on the sensitivity of the content.
