Video production is our passion, and the proof is in our award-winning video productions. Since 1995, we’ve traveled the globe to shoot footage – Tanzania, England, Germany – you name it, and we’ve probably been there. We’ve even had the honor of working with both Nelson Mandela and Jane Goodall! Why the good fortune? It’s our experience and attention to our clients’ needs that sets us apart. Atlantic Media creates compelling videos that will not only entertain, but also inspire!

Massachusetts Department of Education

The quality of Atlantic Media’s work, in my opinion, has been consistently excellent. In addition, the sensitivity they bring to these projects has been an added dimension.

Daniel J. Wiener, Administrator of Inclusive Assessment, The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Department of Education

Michigan State University

The result of Atlantic Media’s work were products that were visually attractive and which realistically told a story in the words of the participants. One of our videos even won a national award.

Edward Roeber, Professor of Measurement and Quantitative Methods, College of Education, Michigan State University

Historic New England

Through creative filming, excellent interviewing, and superb editing, Atlantic Media did it all. Our video is getting rave reviews. Nancy and Brian are top notch!

Diane Viera, Executive Vice President & COO, Historic New England, Boston, Massachusetts

Measured Progress

We gave them very little notice on that project; yet, they came through for us with flying colors. In fact, the Videographer who compiled the entire web piece noted that Atlantic Media’s work was far superior to the contributions of many other members of the Partnership (including a number of Fortune 500 companies).

Stuart R. Kahl, Ph.D. CEO, Measured Progress, Dover, New Hampshire

Currier Museum of Art

While Nancy and Brian were flexible and open to our ideas throughout the process, they also clearly managed the process and kept us informed of progress on a timely basis.

NH Department of Agriculture

The Atlantic Media team did an excellent job with our project and I would work with them again without hesitation.

Gail McWilliam Jellie, Director, NH Department of Agriculture Market & Foods

Measured Progress

Atlantic Media Productions, LLC has worked with Measured Progress for more then 18 years. I personally have worked with them for more then 6 years on a project that requires sensitivity and attention to detail. They have delivered on both counts. I quickly discovered how efficient and professional the Atlantic Media team is. I can’t imagine having another production company work on my yearly project.

Pamela Berube, Program Manager, Client Services, Measured Progress


Our expectations are high. We count on Atlantic Media to deliver videos that not only capture our personality and clearly communicate our message but also embrace the use of social media and evolving digital paths that our consumers are paving.

He’s a skilled technician, but he’s also an artist – someone who can deftly convey what his clients want to see on the screen in a way that pulls the viewer right in to the story.

Stories are best told by the people who live them. We listen to our clients and rely on their point of view as the source material for our productions.

Nancy and Brian Vawter were grateful to work at Atlantic Media for over 10 years before taking over the company in 2008. Of course today she likes to think that nothing gets done without her – but you’ll have to ask Brian if that’s true!

Let us tell you a little bit more about who we are and why people like to work with us. We’re a full-service video production company. What does that mean? Well, it means that if you want to shoot a video, you only need to make one call. We are your: Producers, Directors, Directors of Photography, Editors, Videographers, Original Music Composers, Audio Techs, Lighting Techs, Grips, Production Assistants, Make-up Artists and more. Basically, we can do it all – and we only use the best people and the best equipment for each of our video productions. Yes, we’re technicians, but we’re also storytellers.

If you’re thinking there are other companies out there with similar capacities, you’re right. But, those guys are usually in the big cities and they tend to come with big budgets. Think of us as a big time video production company with small town sensibilities. Plus, we know how to relate to people! We’ve traveled around the world and have worked with all different varieties of clients and businesses. Our goal is simple: to listen to the needs of each client. The rest is easy!



Pre-production is anything that happens before we actually start to shoot. No, it’s not just organizing – it’s strategic creative thinking! The Pre-production process allows us to become a part of your team. From creative input, to overall project management – we’re here to make sure that before anything moves forward, we all know where we’re going! We work together with your team to ensure that your project moves forward, giving you the final product you want – on-time and on-budget!

Our Pre-production Services include: Copy-writing, creation of storyboards, location scouting, casting and talent auditions, budgeting, scheduling, production management, and hiring crews for shoots.



Now that we have a dependable road map, where do we go? To the shoot of course! Just sit back and relax, you’re in good hands. The actual production of the video is the fun part – it’s the day the cameras roll and we get to say, “Action!” Well, we rarely say “Action” but it sounds good! But this is the part of the process where we become your directors, your videographers, your lighting technicians and more. We’ll take care of all your production needs, so all you need to do is sit back and just enjoy the ride!

Our Production services include: Producer, Director, Director of Photography, Videographer, Audio Technicians, Lighting Technicians, Production Assistants, Make-up and Hair Artists. We also provide all of the Film and Video equipment.


Once we wrap, it’s on to Post Production, or the “editing” process. We take all our fabulous footage and work with you to make a professional video production you can be proud of and one that will move, motivate, educate or just plain entertain! Need to add graphics or animation? We can do that. Need a specific format for your final videos? We can do that too!

Our Post Production services include: Producer, Director, Editor, Original Music Composer, Editing Equipment, and we can help with all your duplication and packaging requirements.

We don’t like to brag, but since you’re here, yes, we’re very proud of all the awards we’ve won over the years. In any field, in helps to bring accreditation and validation to what you’re doing. We think that it’s a testament to our hard-earned mastery of video production. But, we couldn’t do it all on our own. We work directly with our clients through every step of the process, making sure that what they want to see eventually comes to life on the screen. It’s a creative collaboration of the minds. We’d like to thank all our clients for their hard work too – we couldn’t have done it without you!
