Who we are
We are creative professionals. But not the kind that create boring infomercials. What we do is take ideas, concepts and visions, and turn them into reality, through what ever media format is needed. We are based in the beautiful state of Idaho, known for not just potatoes, but for creativity, technology and business. Our talented team of cinematographers handles projects of nearly every scale and genre, from single-camera studio
interviews to multi-camera, multi-crew commercial
shoots, in multiple locations around the world. We connect with audiences through creative storytelling. Regardless of the format or genre, we approach every project the same way: tell the most compelling story. As a full-service video production studio, we create, and execute projects from beginning to end. This gives us the unique ability to maintain the highest caliber of creative integrity all the way through.
What we do
At Silverline, we create dynamic visual experiences through video production and photography. There are many video production companies out there, but what separates us from the masses is the personal touch, with an eye for editing, videography, and an ear for music, captured the spirit and heart of each and every project. Anyone can pick up a camera and shoot a video, but it takes a professional to visualize the end product before the first image is created. Our team consists of extremely talented professionals who capture and create emotion, bringing success to our clients. No matter the size or scale of the project, we work hard to produce the best media product that tells a story, and shares a message that brings people to action. From our first meeting through completion of the project, we collaborate with you as a creative partner. Your video is brought to life by a team of accomplished professionals, completely aligned behind a single vision.
