BAERCLAW PRODUCTIONS – A COMPANY BASED ON STORY TELLING!

Bill Baer – President

After 13 award winning years in the broadcasting industry working for every major network, I decided that it was time to take my storytelling and producing skills in a different direction. Instead of reporting on the news of the day, I wanted to share the stories of exciting and interesting people, places, organizations, and activities and this was the beginning of Baerclaw Productions, a full-service video production company. Sitting next to Dan Rather was fine, but I knew there had to be more for someone who could tell compelling, concise stories.Experience, creativity, and professionalism makes Baerclaw Productions special and is the foundation for our award winning staff. Combine that with the leading state of the art equipment and commitment to the customer and it’s easy to see how we consistently meet or exceed our clients expectations.


Creativity, experience and complete customer service. Since 1997, Baerclaw Productions has been producing award winning videos for a wide array of clients ranging from small start-ups to Fortune 100 companies. We have produced everything from 30 second commercials to hour long documentaries and everything in between. Whether you need a corporate video, web video, promotional video, sales video or training video, our team can take your vision and make it into a video to share with the world!

TOP 10 REASONS WHY BAERCLAW PRODUCTIONS IS THE VIDEO PRODUCTION COMPANY YOU SHOULD HIRE FOR YOUR NEXT PROJECT THROUGH THE WORDS OF OUR CLIENTS

  1. Price – The quote that we received from Baerclaw Productions was so much better that our last production company. I thought it was too good to be true but I decided to give them a chance on a small project and I was blown away but the quality, service and the finished product. They are now doing all of our production work.
  2. Experience – I was looking for a production company that could make a video like what I see on TV and after meeting with Bill and learning about his background as a TV producer, reporter and anchor and the fact that all of his staff come from the television, I was confident that I would get a video that looked like it was just on the nightly news. They delivered in spades!
  3. Equipment – I’ve seen some people shooting videos on their phones or small camcorders that you can buy at BestBuy – that was not what we got from Baerclaw Productions. Their equipment looked more like what you see the big networks using and that mattered to my CEO. After a bad experience, he wanted me to find a production company that used real equipment and once Baerclaw Productions got set up and we did the shoot, he was happy and that made me happy too.
  4. Turn around time – I don’t know all of the steps that are involved in putting together a video and I don’t think my boss does either, but I’m guessing there are a lot of steps to make it happen. When we first hired Baerclaw Productions, I needed a video done in less than a week and Bill and his staff made it happen and there wasn’t even an upcharge for working through the weekend!
  5. Story tellers/Great interviewers – We have used Baerclaw Productions for a number of projects and I have been amazed at how they make everyone that we put on camera feel at ease, comfortable and allow them to focus on what we are talking about rather than all of the stuff that is going on around them. I love Bill’s line that we aren’t going to talk about politics, religion, the stock market or ISIS, we’re going to talk about what you know and what you do – nothing more, nothing less.
  6. Professional – From the minute that the Baerclaw Productions van pulled up to the time that they left, the entire Baerclaw Productions team was so professional. When they were all done packing up their equipment, they even took the time to put all of the tables and chairs in the conference room back in the same place as they were when the showed up.
  7. Flexible/Open to ideas – When I first met with Bill, he said that he was going to play devil’s advocate with us from start to finish to make sure that we knew about and understand every option that was possible so that we could make an educated decision as we were going through the process. They did and they explained the technical stuff in words that I could easily understand. Not only did we get a great video, I learned some things about making videos that I use when videotaping my kids.
  8. Attention to detail – The Baerclaw Productions crew was amazing. They were doing an interview with my boss and just before we got started, Steve went running out of the room with a light and an extension cord. Within a couple of minutes, he had set up a light outside of our building that was shining through a window to create a more interesting background. I didn’t see anything wrong with the shot, but Steve did and quickly made it 100 percent better. Then after sitting through part of the edit, I was amazed at the attention to detail that our editor went through to remove every breath that could be heard on the tape. I didn’t even hear it until they pointed it out and then it really came through. They didn’t have to do either of these but by making those little changes, our video was so much better.
  9. Services provided – We have done a number of projects with Baerclaw Productions and no matter what I ask for, Bill and his team make it happen whether with in-house equipment or through someone else that they have in their network. We’ve used teleprompters, dollies, crane, even a Steadicam… no matter what we need, they can make it happen. They even helped up find a crew to do a taping at our corporate office and then Baerclaw did the final edit. They make my life so easy!
  10. Reliable – Every project that we have done with Baerclaw Productions has been so easy! They always show up on time, usually early and are waiting in the parking lot until our designated start time and no matter how quickly I need a video done, they figure out a way to get it done and they have never gone over on budget!
