Welcome to Brinster & Company

Media - HD Video - Photography - Communication Strategy - Web Design

Once upon a time.....

 

...it took a million dollar camera that weighed 100 pounds and a crew of 20 to produce high quality imagery. How things have changed. You still need to know about composition, lighting, directing, & editing; but at least nowadays the camera fits in one hand.

 

Now, you too can add the visual power of Hollywood quality production at small business prices.


ABOUT

First and foremost we're story tellers

 

And we've been telling the world about Alaska in vivid, memorable, and exciting ways for over 25 years.

 

icon FEATURE FILMS

If you have seen moving images of Alaska anywhere in the world, you've likely seen our work. From US national and European television commercial campaigns featuring the bountiful seafood from Alaska’s pristine waters to a Smithsonian exhibit about high seas fishing in the Bering Sea, the riveting Alaska imagery at an international exhibition in London, and an environmental thriller for Hollywood set on the north slope of Alaska.

"Brinster was instrumental in rescuing the production of TOUGHER IN ALASK WITH GEO BEACH for the History Channel. He provided video and audio direction, production, and editing in a tight turnaround environment to national broadcast standards...we confindently issue our highest A+ reference for Brinster and his crew."

Geo Beach - Tougher in Alaska with Geo Beach for History Channel.


icon MEDIA FOR WEB

"I highly recommend Mark and his company, and the reason has to do with the quality of his work, his flexibility and how easy he is to work with. He's a great storyteller, shoots beautiful footage, and is a phenomenal problem solver. When necessary he's figured out how to shoot with limited crew, in small spaces, around weather delays, cancelled flights, less than perfect accommodations, and a myriad of unexpected circumstances. He does it all with a great deal of flexibility and good humor. Finally, Mark is great to work with, fun to be around, and there are no surprises — he always delivers on time and on budget."

  • WE SHOOT REAL REALITY

    We've shot in some of the wildest conditions on the planet. From a full Hollywood movie shoot 20 miles out of Barrow in the dead of winter to high seas adventure in the middle of the Bering Sea. We've chartered C-130's, ships, bush planes, helicopters, snow machines, and even dog sleds getting into villages from one end of Alaska to the other. We've hiked up cliffs; paddled rowboats and kayaks; hunkered down in 100 mph winds, minus 60 degree weather, and 50 ft seas; skirted volcanoes, slogged through miles of tundra, and toughed it out for days and nights living on peanut butter and pilot bread in small airports, old trucks, boats, & planes to get the story.

  • EDIT

    We select best photographs, edit video, and do all format conversions and compressions so your media works seamlessly on the internet. You may not want to build your website, but you need to manage it, right? And you need it to work across many platforms too, from computers to androids to smart phones.

  • CONSTRUCTION

     

    Once we've edited the video and integrated the photographs with some web themes, we prepare a rough draft of your website for approval. Then we fine tune —optimize for search engines and mobile devices, create on line store, set up e-commerce, ads, social & blogs —whatever you want to do. And then we launch.

    Our mission is to make it easy for you to manage and make changes as needed. We stand by our price. If changes are required we will happily do whatever is needed.

 

"Mark and company proved indespensable to us. From arranging complicated logistics and shooting on-location under tough conditions to producing beautiful still photographs for promotions and DVD jackets to setting up and producing narration recordings in which high-quality was required; I found Brinster & Co. easy to work with and, better yet, totally committed to delivering a high-quality product. That's an unusual combination of talents, but I'm happy to say they've got 'em."
