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.

Our passion is partnering with companies to do the heavy lifting from the very beginning to make sure that your videos get the result you want from the people you’re trying to reach.

You know you want a video, but not sure where to start?

LET US TELL YOU HOW

THE BIG DOG LITTLE BED DIFFERENCE:

We help you focus on strategy (not stopping at pretty visuals).

Our team does the heavy lifting for you. We take the planning and organization off your plate.

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.

GO BACK

I'm a #femalefilmmaker, writer, mental health advocate, masters swimmer, and amateur cook. Born and raised in Virginia, I moved to Wilmington, NC for college and fell in love with it. I now live in Durham with my partner, Michael, and our beagle and tabby cat.

At six years old, I began a lifelong love of competitive swimming, something that has defined most of my life. I competed nationally during my college career, and now enjoy biking, weightlifting, and swimming - especially at an outdoor pool! My love for athleticism translates to my work ethic on shoot days and attention to movement and detail.

I love working with people who are passionate about life in all its seasons. A true Gemini, I consider myself both serious and goofy, strong and delicate, a nerd and artist - and I love growing and learning in this creative (yet technical) field.

GO BACK

I am an endless people watcher, day dreamer, and project do-er. After graduating with a degree in film from Emerson College, I moved to Los Angeles and spent several years working in the entertainment industry. I am thrilled to be back on the East Coast pursuing storytelling with the team at BDLB!

I have a soft spot for weddings and love to capture the organic moments, intergenerational relationships, and unique magic of real life love stories! In my free time, you can find me working on my own documentary films, watching horror movies with my husband, seeking good community, and enjoying a million cups of tea.
