We are Scripps

There's a lot to absorb on your first day at a media giant like Scripps. This orientation video set the stage by sharing the history, the mission and the values of the company.

BioMerieux

Leadership at BioMerieux wanted to tell their employees the story of the company from a position of reinforcing company mission and values. It worked!

Panasonic

To showcase their ruggedized hand-held computer, the Toughbook U1, Panasonic and KPG traveled to Tucson AZ for a day with the Tucson Police department.

Ameritas Life

To reach the Hall of Fame is a once in a lifetime event. These life story videos and emotional stage presentations showcase the best of the best, building camaraderie, pride and excitement throughout the organization.

Intelligrated worked with KPG Creative to design and produce this attention grabbing video, along with several companion pieces and interactive displays to showcase the company's products and performance.

Cintas

Presenting a polished image has always been a hallmark of the Cintas Corporation. Installing and servicing restroom fixtures is no different. In a series of training videos, employees learn the Cintas way of installing and refilling restroom fixtures and products.

We offer all the technical event and video production services you’d expect: staging, sound, lighting, videography, editing and more. But we love your idea more than we love our technology and our toys. That’s why our creative services—producing, directing, scriptwriting, storyboarding, talent selection, graphic design and speaker coaching—really set us apart.

A strong music bed for video, walk-in and speaker introductions made this launch event for Panasonic even more memorable.

Approach

We could describe our process to you, but frankly it would sound a lot like everyone else’s approach. Here are the things that are truly different about our approach to producing events and videos:

  • We love your story more than we love our gadgets
  • We link your internal message with your external message
  • We’re low ego and we play well with others (your agency, cross-functional colleagues, etc)
  • We’re as comfortable working with your CEO as with a front-line sales rep
  • We give you a price and deliver at that price
  • We have the courage to give you an honest opinion and the humility to know when it’s time to “shut up and row”

Us

The Company

We started KPG Creative because we wanted to build a company focused on great storytelling and creating memorable experiences, not an infatuation with the gadgets and equipment of video production and corporate event management. That’s why our name is KPG Creative, not KPG Video or KPG-AV. Headquartered in Mason OH, we’ve brought ideas to life for Fortune 500 companies like Panasonic, Procter & Gamble and Cintas, as well as dynamic mid-sized firms like Intelligrated and Paycor. Our producers bring a wide range of corporate, television and music industry experience to the company, but we all share a passion for great storytelling that evokes emotions and drives action. Here are our stories:
