"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference." ~ 1920 Robert Frost

What makes you different? What makes you unique? Why do you do what you do? Why do you love the things and people you love? Why should others love them too?

Ever since I picked up my first video camera in 1998, I was fascinated by it's ability to tell a story. At first it was just a hobby - something that my pastor asked me to play around with to create videos to show our church  congregation what we did during special community outreaches...something to give them a "why" - as in, "Why am I donating to this outreach? Why should I care?"  The response was far better than I had imagined. People approached me after every video presentation and, through tears and smiles, asked me "How can I be involved in this more?"

When my wife and I (and our 5 children) moved from Sterling to Greeley to help with a church plant, I needed a new job...a new purpose. I wanted to make money doing something I love...isn't that the dream? Remembering the impact my first few videos had on people and how much I loved doing that, the thought then occurred to me "I can use this camera to capture a story and edit it to reflect any desired viewpoint. I can shape the viewer's perspective." This is something I could happily do for a living. And just like that, in 2001 Colorado Digital Video was born!

Since then, we have been constantly updating equipment and services in order to find the best way to help you... represent you! We don't want your video to be just like every other video out there. We deeply desire to help you differentiate yourself from the herd...to stand out as the best, the brightest, the strongest in your industry. We will use an extensive immersion into your business in order to find the best way to tell your story in a way that causes the viewer to become emotionally vested in what you do.
So...tell us why...why do you love the things/people you love and why should we love them too?

What's Up

  • The Artist Who Wasn't an Artist

    19, Feb 17 The Artist Who Wasn't an Artist

    We were recently hired to create promo videos for a women’s conference. Some of the presenters wanted their own promo video, as well. Whitney was one of those people.

    When Whitney first took the stage, I could tell this would be an energetic promo. Full of movement and excitement in her voice, she captured the audience. They were enthralled!

  • What to do when your client says "Moo!"

    13, Feb 17

    Last week I got an email from a client here in CO who we’d worked for before – someone in the agricultural industry. He was requesting a commercial. He wanted us to come out to capture video of calves on a farm being fed his product….Oxford Ag Colostrum, and then edit it together for a 30 sec TV spot but

  • Planning a Few Hours of Fun on a Business Trip

    04, Feb 17

    As I was scrolling thru photos, I saw photos of our business trip to FL. Every year one of our best clients – International Society of Neuronal Regulation (ISNR) – hosts a conference somewhere in the US, but somewhere different each year. They have hired us to provide video services for this conference every year for the past 13 years! In Sept 2016 the conference was in FL.

    Ah, Florida…the sweaty armpit of America.

  • Why do I need video at my next gala?

    29, Jan 17

    Try to think of the last gala or awards dinner or benefit auction that you attended. Was it boring? Exciting? Mundane? Fun? Think for a minute about what things/people made it fun…what things/people made it boring or awkward?

  • Creating Videos with "Share Power"

    16, Jan 17
    Hercules Heart for Helping

    Scroll thru your avg FB or twitter feed and what do you notice most? I notice a sea of videos and photos – the viral ones…the kind you seem to see EVERYBODY sharing or retweeting. They all have one thing in common – “shareability”. My spell check says that word doesn’t exist in the dictionary, but I’m betting it will be one day soon. Here’s why: when it comes to the difference between internet videos that are seen and those that no one knows exists, shareability is all that matters.

  • Using video in marketing: Is it necessary? Is it beneficial? Can I afford it?

    02, Jan 17 Using video in marketing: Is it necessary? Is it beneficial? Can I afford it?

    Yes, yes, and yes. There – I got my blog writing for the week out of the way, and you got to read a very concise but powerful message. Right? Ok, maybe it’s not that easy.
