Reach Films is focused primarily on producing complete end-to-end productions (where we perform all the work and hire as necessary onto the production). This can include Producing, Writing, Directing, Cinematography, Editing, Color, and Sound.

We generally work on the following types of motion picture productions: 

Documentaries,
Aerial Videography,
Training videos,
Documenting training events and exercises,
Public Affairs pieces for city and state governments,
“Video Profiles” for artists and craftspersons,
Short narrative pieces,
Commercials for local and regional broadcast or the Web,
Corporate promotional pieces,
Corporate internal/morale pieces…
…. for the following types of clients:

Law Enforcement and Security Professionals,
City and State Governments,
Small to Large Businesses,
Independent Artists (music, acting, modeling),
Non-Profit Organizations,
and Other Film & Video Production Companies

Our speciality is essentially to create Hollywood-style cinematic style productions for any entity that does not have unlimited funds, yet still demands very high production values. This is especially true for industries where such quality might not normally be seen in video. We understand what the public emotionally responds to. We get it.
