Around 2015 I (James) was looking through old family photos on the computer from when my firstborn, Judah was about 2 years old. (he's 16 now ) It was all going fine until l stumbled onto a video.  The sound of that little boys voice broke me.  His movements, everything about that simple video wrecked me.  This was the moment l became obsessed with video.  There is a power to video that allows you to reverse time in a sense, creating a priceless possession.  This is what we're about.  After using video to document our growing family, Black Pelican Media was born in 2019 after a friend asked us to film their wedding.  We loved every second of that wedding day, and had to have more!  It turns out that telling OTHER peoples' stories through video and watching them have that overwhelming experience is almost BETTER than experiencing it yourself!  Shortly after that, we had the opportunity to help a friend who owns a small business create a video asset to help build their brand and increase sales.  Helping a friend's business succeed was an amazing feeling.  As we continued down the VIDEO creation rabbit-hole we eventually got into marketing on social media with brand-authentic and results-driven content.
