Why does Washington, DC have such a strong video production community? First, there are a number of large media organizations here, which have naturally fostered a community of video production specialists. Discovery Communications has its roots in the Washington, DC area, as does National Geographic Television. It isn’t unusual to hear photographers tell amazing stories of filming poisonous snakes in India or dodging crocodiles in a Costa Rican waterway. This town has a strong journalism and newsgathering community as well, with many who find interest in producing documentary content. PBS also has a strong presence in the area. Many companies based in the DC area produce content for presenting stations around the country.
Secondly, the Federal government plays a role in fostering a strong video production community in the DC area. Many government agencies have in-house producers and video teams or regularly hire outside talent to help produce informational videos, public service announcements and other projects. Washington, DC has a strong legacy of independent documentary production as well, aided in part by the fact that the National Archives are located here.
Lastly, at the grassroots level the DC area has an incredibly strong chapter of Women In Film and Video (WIFV). This group organizes and sponsors valuable programming for film and video professionals at all career levels, from editing and screenwriting roundtables to film screenings and mentorship programs. Additionally, film production, journalism, and documentary programs at Howard University, American University and The George Washington University draw young talent to our city.
In summary, Henninger Media Services, Inc. is deeply integrated in the DC film and video production community. Let us be your gateway to this deep reserve of talent and resources.
