AWARD-WINNING VIDEO PRODUCTION
(We promise it hasn’t gone to our heads)
From documentaries, to company profiles, commercials, music videos and even your grandma’s birthday video (well, maybe not YOUR grandma’s, but ours), we’ve had decades of experience creating compelling eye-candy that grabs viewers by their eyeballs, minds and hearts.
Take a peek at some of our most recent work below. If you’d like to see something specific to the project you have in mind, just ask and we’ll ransack our video vault.
And of course, it goes without saying…we’d love to talk!

Scott has worked in broadcast television for over 20 years in both technical and creative positions.
Currently as a Director/Producer at Rhode Island PBS, he is responsible for a majority of in-house productions for both local and national distribution.
Scott’s work for 3rd Story Productions, as well as a freelance director of photography and editor, has earned him regional and national awards and the opportunity to work with some of the top companies worldwide.
His passion (and addiction) to camera equipment, video software and the storytelling process keeps him on the forefront of the latest trends in media production.
Maria began her video production career as a news reporter in South Africa, followed by a stint as a copywriter at Publicis Worldwide.
She’s been the promotions producer at Rhode Island PBS for 16 years, while also spearheading the creative pursuits of 3rd Story Productions, and making cameo appearances as a ghost on her first documentary, Ghost and Vampire Legends of Rhode Island.
Along with Scott, Maria’s work has garnered several New England Emmy nominations (one for aforementioned ghost doc), a first-place Telly Award and other awards, including in the 48 Hour Film Festival.
Her greatest achievments include producing a pint-sized editor-in-training (her son) and not running that time a real, live leopard jumped on her back.
Anne Mimi Sammis
As the producers of my national PBS series, Love to Paint with Mimi, Maria and Scott were an absolute joy to work with. They’re highly skilled in all technical aspects and infuse thier work with resourcefulness and creativity. Best of all, they’re incredibly personable and easy to work with, which puts everyone around them at ease.
I have had the pleasure of working with Scott on a few projects now for my organization and each one seems to be better than the next!
Scott simply “gets it” and offers up wonderful recommendations and direction on how we can bring the vision and script to life. His attention to detail and perfectionism allowed our final product to deliver at a very high level and it certainly surpassed any expectation.
In addition, what’s nice about Scott is the ease at which you can discuss and collaborate. He’s “in it to win it” and his personable nature allowed me to comfortably interject or ask “can we do this?” during each project – even if it sounded crazy! The short films are now the talk of the organization and employees can’t wait to see what’s next. Scott understood my goals for each project and delivered.
I would absolutely recommend Scott and his talents to anyone.
After a nearly five year process of producing “First Face: The Buck Starts Here” for public television’s Independent Television Service (ITVS), we were extremely fortunate to land in the capable hands of Scott Saracen, who performed the on-line edit of our program. Scott was not only an expert colorist and technical expert, but also a calming, helpful force in completing our film during the last leg of post-production. Beyond his expertise and his demeanor, we got the sense that Scott genuinely cared about our project. It was a rare pleasure to work with Scott, and we whole-heartedly recommend him to any production team!
