Quinn’s Video Storytelling Philosophy
Sticky Intro→ Compelling Body→ Memorable Outro
For any length of video, following these tried-and-true principles will ensure that you keep your audience interested and engaged to the end. Together, we’ll go through your videos and evaluate each section… complete with game time tools you can take with you to get more views, likes, and shares on future videos. We’ll also discuss video length and how to turn one shoot into multiple weeks (or months) of video content.

Hi, I'm Quinn...
and I’m on a mission to help businesses and organizations connect more deeply and have a bigger impact through video.
Native to Portland, I moved to New York City to pursue my childhood dream of becoming an investigative reporter. There, I co-produced a documentary on the NYPD’s Stop & Frisk policy (which now has over eight million views and is mentioned in a federal ruling). Next up, I reported courtside at the 2016 Summer Olympics in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. My stories aired in 256 countries, reaching a TV audience of over one billion.
From there, I ventured off to Europe and beyond—spending several years writing, producing & directing videos, and teaching video workshops. While living in Cape Town, I decided it was time to move home to focus on one goal: use my journalistic lens and passion for stories to support mission-driven companies. So far, so good. My corporate videos have been breaking records around the world and I’ve built Story Based Brands to support products and services that make a positive impact worldwide.
