Images. They are so compelling that we can't not watch them. They are so seductive that they have revolutionized human social communication. LUMINARY is passionate about creating images that inspire, evoke, captivate, motivate, and compel the viewer toward expression, emotion, and action. Our hope is that the viewer begins to dream with their eyes open!
LUMINARY is an award winning production company based in Des Moines & Nashville. We work with a wide range of top-tier clients to create any type of video project including commercials, music videos, independent films, brand films, series and documentaries. Luminary Creative has filmed internationally and all over the U.S. Our desire is to convey your story and the magic of a moment on film. Some ideas are just so compelling they deserve to be brought to life in full color and sound—let LUMINARY bring your project to light.
I have sat in theaters, in auditoriums, in concert halls and in living rooms and experienced moments in which people feel joy, sorrow, hope, and adventure through the magic of film and video. In these moments I am moved and inspired by the connection we have with one another and the stories that make up this epic journey we call "life". As an artist, who uses motion pictures as a medium, I desire to create pieces that allow people to escape for a few hours, a half hour, a moment... and observe worlds filled with stories and relationships, fantasy and reality, failure and success, hope and despair, all in efforts to cause one to feel, experience, or consider something that maybe they haven't before. A moment that connects to them. I hope that I have the opportunity to create one of those moments for you.
LUMINARY can support your project idea from the beginning. These elements are crucial to creating a piece that will make a lasting impression. We offer:
There are many elements to consider on set during your shoot. LUMINARY can handle all of them... from lighting and set design, to creating cinematic shots using sliders, dollies, and jibs, and even handling casting and talent management. We want your project to run smoothly and efficiently!
Adding the final touches to your video is very important. LUMINARY can assist in the areas of graphics and design, color grading, video editing, soundtracking, voice overs, scoring and music production. We create in 6k, 4k, 2k, and HD that can be formatted for Web, TV, Theater, and DVD purposes.
