Welcome To Big Sky Country!

Posted on by Chip Swetnam

Thank you for checking out Big Sky Digital Media and our new website.

2016 marks Big Sky’s 19th year in business, and we are incredibly humbled and thankful for the amazing roster of clients that we’ve been privileged to serve in that time. We’ve traveled the country and the globe to share the stories of a variety of ministries, corporations, products, services and most importantly… people. We simply love telling stories in thoughtful, touching and exciting ways, and we can’t wait to see what year 20 brings.

Big Sky is a family business that prefers to treat our clients like family. That’s why many of our customers have been working with us since we opened our doors. Don’t be surprised if we invite you to the house for a cookout if your edit session runs long, or take you to the movies for some creative inspiration. Sometimes, we even buy the popcorn.

Before starting Big Sky, I worked for years in a variety of capacities on various movies and television shows. I’m sure you won’t be surprised when I tell you that the moving image business has changed dramatically in that time. We’ve mostly moved from large rolls of expensive film stock to hard drives and Compact Flash cards, from heavy reel to reel tape recorders to powerful digital audio recorders and from practical sets to limitless digital worlds. But one thing has never changed… storytelling. Good storytelling is the art of reaching people at the heart level through images, words and performances that transcend all the digital bells and whistles you can imagine. I believe that this is where our company shines. We get to the heart of the story, and touch the viewer with an emotion or thought they may not have had before. Whether the subject is a wrenching documentary or a fun corporate video, there is always a heart to the story and we can help you find it.

All of us at Big Sky would welcome the opportunity to get to know you, and show you what we’ve got cooking. Follow us on Facebook and check back here occasionally for my slightly off-kilter take on the world of film production, social media and possibly barbeque.
