- Aristotle Deep, huh?
Stories are the currency of human contact so whether developing commercials, brand videos, video campaigns, sponsored content, animations, or corporate videos we always start and end with the question “what story are we telling?” From there it’s pretty simple: find the best way to tell it. As a creative development and content production agency, we provide end-to-end video services with some of the best writers, producers, directors, editors, and cinematographers in the universe.*
*This applies only to the current, known universe.
We cannot speak to the talent and creativity of content creators
in other star systems or any potential multi-verse scenario.
"Professional-grade output, easy operation."
"There's an easier way to save."

Whether navigating a 30 foot jump off the side of a mountain while holding a steadicam upside-down to catch the low angle and racking focus from the rider in the foreground doing a frontside 360 to the rider in the background doing a backside misty flip, or cutting and shaping light around the face of an interviewee for a corporate video, you'll never catch Matt Palmer sweating. (That sentence is so nice you might have to read it twice) That's because Matt Palmer doesn't sweat. He just makes beautiful images with the best cameras in the world. Matt's editing and cinematography work includes films for ABC, Burton in collaboration with Mountain Dew, Red Bull, and GoPro. Matt Palmer would be Never Without a Picture's spirit animal if we didn't already have one.

Eli Pictureman was born on Montgomery Place in Park Slope, Brooklyn to a single mother, Annie Bruce Pictureman. Afflicted from an early age by a severe case of wanderlust, he has trotted the globe ever since leaving home at the tender age of 4 days old. For more information about Eli visit his map of misadventures.
Eli Pictureman is a constant at Never Without a Picture... for better or worse. While on location Eli always weasels his way onto the crew and woos us with grand declarations of “collaboration,” “vision,” and “creative input.” Yet, by the end of every production the only trace of Eli is a stack of selfies, too many new “friends”, and a questionable expense report. Anyway, here’s a photo map of his revelry while we were busy working.View Eli’s Travel Map
