Ramón giving script advice to on-camera talent, 2022

Ramón Bannister.
The CEO.

Giraffe Video Production was born after I saw a problem in the corporate sector when I worked for a Fortune 500 company. Even with literally billions of dollars at its disposal – and I mean many billions many times over – as an organization it lacked the knowledge and skills to produce simple videos that looked professional. But I had those skills and knowledge. To me, video production comes naturally. While many are intimidated, I grow excited about potential video projects!

I learned video production in the late 1990s when I worked for KUAT Channel 6 in Tucson, AZ. I was trained all the way up to Assistant Director while I was an undergrad student at the University of Arizona. Being exposed to professional-level productions turned me into a technical powerhouse. Mixed with my music experience and education, I had an advantage over most others with a Media Arts degree: I could create something that looked extraordinary from nothing more than an idea in someone’s head or a plan written down on paper.

I’m not saying it’s easy. I just make it look easy. So, I invite you to consider what Giraffe Video Production can bring to your organization. I assure you: every project we acquire is a test of what we can do. Every project brings with it unique problems and genius solutions.

We give it our all to try and make your project the best possible video.

Elisif Brandon.
The Project Manager.

Elisif specializes in architectural photography. She also does headshots, corporate event photography, product photography, and car photography. As such she helps me with managing projects and communications. She has her own business as well, aptly named Elisif Photography. As she puts it:

“Sixteen years ago I realized I had more than a casual interest in photography while working on a Ph.D. in marine biology, studying sea lions in Alaska. I was more inspired by the scenery than the science, and since then I have honed my technique and vision in courses and workshops. I photograph whatever catches my eye, from leaves, landscapes, skyscrapers, and people, to old rusty trucks. Over the years, however, I have discovered that I have an affinity for architecture, both as a fan and as a photographer.”
