We know it’s about more than just setting up a camera — the magic happens in the STRATEGY, and working with you to tell a compelling story about what you do and the value of your work.
LET US TELL YOU HOW
THE BIG DOG LITTLE BED DIFFERENCE:
We help you focus on strategy (and not just pretty visuals).
Our team does the heavy lifting for you. We take the planning and organization off your plate.
We make the process fun and the results impactful.
With our hands-on approach and 9+ years of experience you get to relax while we get invested in the details, and create strategic video content that will help you meet your business goals.
We’re also proud to be a woman-owned small business and one of our passions is helping other female business owners share their stories and use video to scale their work.
I like to think I’ve always been passionate about communication. In elementary school this showed itself as D’s in conduct (it was always ‘Too much talking…’) but it later showed up in high school debate and mock legislature, facilitating difficult diversity conversations as an Orientation Leader and RA in college, and parent/teacher conferences as a young Teach For America corps member. These days it shows up most often in the films we create for clients (and for fun), but at its core it’s really still all about communication.
Past experiences working with high-performing schools and teachers have helped to calibrate expectations high, and I still love any chance I get to work in the world of education. The mountains of North Carolina make my heart smile, and I dream of one day running away there. My three pups keep our Instagram full of #pupcontent, and cause me to go over on my data usage every. single. month. On a daily basis I feel incredibly grateful to have found a career that still feels a lot like a hobby.

In west Philadelphia, born and raised, filming or editing is how Tyler spends most of his days. After moving to California to attend USC, he received his film degree from Los Angeles Film School and went on to work various positions inside the entertainment industry. He moved to Durham in 2013 and worked as a editor/videographer for various Triangle-based production and marketing companies before finally landing at BDLB (he and his wife are proud former BDLB wedding clients).
He believes in three things — the power of love, the power of story, and the power of pit bulls (specifically his dogs Vernon, a rescue from South Central LA, and Margie, a rescue from right here in Durham, who is now living the American Dream).

The camera is Yuri’s comfort blanket — that and the oyster bar. He loves meeting new people and capturing real moments in a way that can be treasured by generations.
In his spare time, he enjoys the out-of-the-way winding road with his wife, but they’re likely cleaning up after their two kids. Yuri also feels silly about third person references. ^_^
