Parrot Creek is an independent video
production company in Warner, New Hampshire, with a specialty
in creating top quality work at reasonable rates that fit the budgets
of individuals, small businesses and educational and non-profit organizations.
I'm George Packard, and I founded Parrot Creek seven years ago with
the production of two instructional videos for the retail market.
During the past several years I've produced three documentary movies,
including a feature-length history documentary, and I've continued
to work with dozens of clients on jobs ranging from short web video
to creating complete video productions for DVD. See
With more than 30 years experience in writing, communications
and media project development, I can ensure that a particular video
piece makes a good fit with your existing communications or advertising.
I'll work with you and with the people who develop other media for
you to produce video that is conceptually and stylistically integrated
with your overall marketing or communications strategy.
In addition, if your video project requires elements
such as complex computer generated graphics that I can't offer,
I can bring the right people in so that all the elements of your
job will meet or exceed your expectations.
What does "top quality" mean?
Gorgeous, crisp, well-edited high-definition (HD) video,
of course. But filming is just one step in the process of creating a
piece that tells your story effectively to the audience you want to
The craft of creating a top quality video project—whether
it's a three minute retail store tour for the web, or a 30-minute info/documentary
movie on DVD—depends on close and consistent attention to those
crucial elements in a production that separate the masterly from the
mediocre. Concept, storyboard, message, style, sound, color, lighting
What about keeping costs down?
Your budget is my budget, whether it's $150 or $15,000.
On request, I provide a maximum cost estimate, and if the project
takes less time than estimated, I bill only for the actual time spent.
But I don't cut corners to cut costs. If you are on a tight budget,
I'll work with you to create an effective video that fits that budget.
No matter what the project, I ensure that the finished product does
its job in the most effective way possible: communicating with your
audience in that direct, compelling and engaging way that is the unique
power of video.
