Ben McElroy has incorporated his Limited Liability Company (LLC), McElroy Films, to further the mission of making professional high definition film and video more accessible to businesses, nonprofit organizations and the public. McElroy Films is affordable without cutting corners. McElroy uses his resource pool of industry professionals to create the right team for each project, allowing for a high quality, custom product at an affordable price.

“I started this business because I have a passion for film and video. I like to work with people, figure out their vision and bring that to life. Video production has been around for years and has been very expensive up until this point. The niche I’m filling is the ability to offer inexpensive video without sacrificing on quality.” said McElroy.

McElroy Films produces each project using professional equipment. Tapeless HD cameras combine excellent picture quality with faster processing. Exporting to DVD, Blu-ray and the web is done with lightning precision, getting video to potential customers, donors or friends and family faster. Professional lighting and both wired and wireless audio are the same ones used for professional television, movies and sporting events. McElroy Films uses equipment previously found mainly on television and movie sets, such as GlideCams and dollies, to create trendy cinematic style of shooting.

Every project is customizable from start to finish and budgeted according to the client’s needs. McElroy translates his knowledge of video technology into understandable terms and guides clients toward possibilities they may not have known existed.

With social networking sites on the rise, more companies and organizations are turning to online video. Businesses need to get on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter and embed videos into websites and blogs.” explained McElroy. “People aren’t going to be picking up a newspaper or flipping through the yellow pages. They’re going to be on search engines such as Yahoo, Bing and Google. Businesses need to drive traffic to their websites and get people to stay there and interact. They need to make sure they catch viewers’ attention. What better way to do all that than by adding online video content?”

McElroy introduced a new website to reflect this excitement and forward thinking ambition. It is designed to appeal to both video professionals and the general public. The website has sections for each of the company’s services, a Word Press Blog filled with tips and news, a Press Room with journalist resources and McElroy TV, an online video channel powered by MediaSilo. Kick Start Media customized the site and Studio Press designed the website’s template. It is interactive and easy to navigate. The McElroy Films website is now featured in StudioPress’ showcase and on MediaSilo’s website.
