Heavy Industrial Electrical Contractor
Fischbach & Moore - 2020
Skillman Video Group created a “Who We Are” video as an inside look at Fischbach & Moore through the eyes of their employees.
This country is literally built on the backs of our trades men and women. The work they do is hard, but day in and day out, they do it. It was amazing to get to see firsthand their expertise and dedication. I was proud to be able to tell their story!
Board Game Cafe
Tavern of Tales - 2020
Tavern of Tales is a board game cafe focused on visitors experiencing board games in an entirely new way with the innovative use of audio and narration.
What they offer is a new concept that is not easily described, so they approached us to leverage the power of video to help tell their story.
Home Equity Investment Company
Hometap Equity Partners - 2021
How often do you make a new purchase without first hearing about someone else’s experience with that product or service Rarely ever, right? We want social proof from peers and unbiased third parties, not the brands selling the products. That’s why client testimonial videos are worth their marketing weight in gold.
Lease Finance Company
TimePayment Corp - 2016
Skillman Video Group had the pleasure of working with the TimePayment Corporation on a six-part commercial video series. This monumental project included a 30-person crew, sparks, fire, confetti, and… a couple of cats. The production was a three-day event (one studio prep day and two shoot days) and was shot at one of the premiere sound stages in Boston, MA. To view more from the series, please visit our YouTube channel or click here to watch the next video in the series “Rock Rehearsal“.
Boston Children's Hospital - 2018
Training videos are the most effective way to educate and train multitudes of people, whether employees or clinicians, with the greatest cost and time efficiency. The Video Producers at Skillman Video Group were hired to produce a training video series for Boston Children’s Hospital for their protocol when receiving an Ebola virus suspected/confirmed patient–from the initial Emergency Department contact, lab orders, room cleaning, to donning & doffing PPE procedures for the nurses.

Industrial Laundry Company
Crown Uniform & Linen Service - 2018
When it comes to hiring, a recruitment video helps you stand out – allowing you to creatively toot your own horn to attract the right talent. To begin with, recruitment videos show your company’s human side. They give an inside scoop into the people who steer the business, a look at the daily life of employees, and the values you stand by. Crown Uniform & Linen Service hired us to produce a five-part series of “employee spotlight” videos that did just this. Creatively, the videos are “documentary” in style–no music, no graphics, and intentionally raw and rough around the edges to give viewers a real-life sense of what it would be like to work at Crown.

Commercial Water Filtration Company
Gustavo Preston - 2019
There is nothing like a great explainer video to engage with potential customers and familiarize them with your product or service. Gustavo Preston’s water filter technology is unique in the marketplace and their main goal was to explain the complex nature of what they do in an engaging and memorable video to an audience of building engineers. Watch the other videos in the series here: Point-of-Entry Filtration and Point-of-Use Filtration.

Thought Leadership Video
Management Consulting Firm
L.E.K. Consulting - 2019
Fundamentally, consulting is a people business. A consulting firm’s assets are the knowledge, expertise, and capabilities of its people. (The same can be said for almost any professional services business.) L.E.K. Consulting knew there was no better way to showcase this than video. In 2016, L.E.K. hired Skillman Video Group to help the firm produce their “Executive Insights” videos, and we continue to produce these Thought Leadership Videos as well as Expertise Videos and Video Abstracts for L.E.K. through today.

Country Music Association - 2012
The Country Music Association hired Skillman Video Group to produce a live webcast of their “Singer Songwriter Series” concert in Boston, MA. SVG crews brought in truck loads of equipment to produce the video just hours before the event.

Event Kick-Off Video
Supply Chain Management Company
Bristlecone - 2019
If you’re holding a major event for your key audiences and did a great job marketing to fill the seats, start the event with a short, powerful video that makes everyone sit up straight and start listening. And since you only have a few moments to get and keep your audience’s attention, make sure to keep the video under 2 minutes long.
This is a 90-second conference kick-off video that Bristlecone, a supply chain management company, hired SVG to produce for the event they were hosting.
Press Release Video
ERP Cybersecurity Company
Onapsis - 2019
Video is immersive, engaging, and effective. If you want your press release to stand out, supplement it with a video. Not only will it appeal to correspondents, but it will also be more memorable. More people will share it, talk about it, and take interest than they would a pure text press release just filled with bulky paragraphs. Onapsis hired Skillman Video Group to produce a press release video to announce the addition of the former Chief Information Security Officer at Google to their Board of Directors.

Skin Care Company
Arianna Skincare - 2016
When introducing a new product to consumers, many start-ups struggle with what differentiates their product or service from the competition. It is far easier to sell your product by telling a great story, thus this video was completely unscripted to keep the authenticity and emotional connection to the viewer. It was shot in 4K over a day-and-a-half at three different locations using a Steadicam to give the shots a fluidity of movement while also keeping a very shallow depth of field. The Producers at Skillman Video Group carefully crafted both the interview and the editing process to keep the focus of the video on the founder’s story, which increases the impact of the video.
"Me Voila" by Joz Victor - 2019
This music video was produced for international audiences in French speaking countries in the Caribbean, Europe, Canada and Africa. The story of the video focuses on Joz Victor, a musician singing to a lover that he is unable to completely reach due to differences in time or place. The song is titled, “Me Voila” (or, “Here I am” in English) and it follows Joz singing to this out-of-reach lover. In some scenes, Joz is invisible and in other scenes they are together, which are the memories Joz has from the times that they had when they were in love. For a “behind the scenes” look at how we produced this music video, please click this article here: The 4 Rules of Music Video Production.
Construction Management Company
Bond Brothers - 2015
In 2015, Bond Brothers, Inc went through a massive rebranding exercise that included a total redesign of their website and overhaul of their online content. Part of the rebranding project included the production of a “Brand Video” to tell the story of who they are as a company. Over 3 days the video production crews of Skillman Video Group were tasked with shooting 25 employees at 5 different locations… while never repeating the same background for each subject.
Start-up Home Equity Finance Company
Hometap Equity Partners - 2019
Skillman Video was hired to produce a brand video for tech startup, HomeTap Equity Partners, a company that offers a new way for consumers to access equity in their homes without taking on debt. If you want a brand video to connect with your audience, it should be more than just about your product or service. It should be about the problem, the solution, the experience, and, most importantly, the larger mission of the company–the purpose, the cause, the belief, your company’s WHY. In this video, see how HomeTap is first and foremost about helping the American homeowner.
Lynch Leadership Academy, Boston College - 2015
When the Lynch Leadership Academy at Boston College wanted to market their unique Principal/Executive training and development program (targeting Public, Charter and Catholic schools in the Boston area), they hired the video marketing experts at Skillman Video Group. Our Boston video producers visited 4 schools around the Boston area, and conducted interviews with key program administrators, funders and directors. Our video crews were able to deftly create warm and inviting shots in the most difficult of spaces, and our editors were able to craft a concise and powerful message out of hours of footage.
Public Relations Video
City of Gloucester - 2012

The video will be used to help bring in more development and research funding and possibly promote entirely new industries for Gloucester’s historic seaport.
