We are 100% FAA licensed for your company to fly in in Minneapolis, St Paul and we even fly drones in other states.
We have both the DJI Inspire with interchangeable lenses as well as the smaller DJI Mavic Pro Zoom 2 for affordable professional drone videographer shot options.
If we just need a few quick shots, the single operator and small drone offers good 4k footage.
For more complex projects where you want 2 person crew (one person flies the drone and the 2nd person controls the camera wirelessly to frame your perfect video) then we use the larger DJI Inspire. The larger drone can also fly faster and in more windy conditions.
One thing that makes our creative video agency in Minneapolis unique is that we own multiple drones and also have some of the best drone operators in Minnesota for your project.

- Start With Story
- Story Systems
- Last Minute Production
- Custom Storytelling
- Harnessing the power of video:
What makes Provid Films unique among the best corporate video production companies in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA?
It’s our relentless focus on your story, your dreams, and your vision of changing the world.
We feel good – by seeing the good our customers are doing.
– Saving time.
– Improving the environment.
– Leading innovation and advancements.
Often corporations and franchises have struggled to create video content at the brand quality and expectations they require.
Our mission is to be easy to work with.
That means we adapt on the fly, because we know the corporate environment can change quickly – and also move slower – than planned.
We try to answer the call within 3 rings.
We are small and nimbal.
For many of our franchises and corporate clients – that ability to speak with the same person here at Provid Films time and time again makes all the difference.
As we discover the story behind your company, it makes future projects easier and easier as we know you. We know who your customers are. We know why customers choose you and what your vision is for your company. We can make video content easily because we have an outside perspective similar to outside customers – but with an inside knowledge of where you excel.
If there were an easy button for video production, it would be the speed dial / favorite contacts on our client’s phone
Real example: we answered a phone call inquiring about a project – and 48 hours later we had an entire country club blocked off for us with a 15 person crew filming a Super Bowl Pre-Game TV Commercial with a top global athlete and TV network host who flew in on a private jet. (no joke). We are fast, nimble, and efficient.
So whether you work with the top best video production companies in the USA or you have your own internal marketing video staff creating content for your projects day in and day out – Provid Films can enhance and bolster the capacity of your team for when you need those fast results
Seriously, save 612-208-8819 in your Favorite Contacts or send us a text.
We want to make it easy to get your questions, concerns, and challenges solved.
After working with us – our clients see first hand why we seay it’s ‘video made easy’.
Think of any great speech and ask if you think they just woke up and decided to ‘wing it’ or if they prepared in advance? We discover your story and our video script writer helps craft the backbone of your film so that the finished video feels authentic to your company and it’s story – all while avoiding that icky corporate ‘scripted’ feeling.
We help you compose the perfect script and then use a mix of tools to make it not feel like a script.
There are a lot of tools and tricks we use to make stories come alive – tools like:
– expert led interview “conversations” so that you sound natural. Don’t have just anyone ask questions, work with an interviewing expert to pull the best and most authentic sounding answers possible.
– use our tricks known as “The 2nd” during interviews to raises the quality of your interviewee answers from a B to an A+.
– allow your main character to speak directly to the audience by looking directly into the lense while also looking directly at their interviewer. It’s as simple as having a face to face conversation when using something like the “interrotron” style setup. This also works for things like virtual events and livestreaming zoom calls
Our customers love that we’ve made it easy to create custom video content. From pre-production (detailed planning), on-site production (yay cameras), and post production (editing the video footage and working on any client revisions), you will feel the benefits of The Provid Films Production Process™ as you can rest at ease knowing we’ll be there every step of the way.
All projects get regularly scheduled check-ins to make sure we’re on schedule, on budget, and on time.

For those of you who are just curious – our video production studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota can handle your production timeline whether you have a last minute production project you need a quick quote and turnaround on or you’re working on a long term project over the course of a year.
We have some clients we deliver same day edits on – it really is the best of both worlds because our clients like you deserve the best.
The post production process typically ranges from as little as 24 hours to 6 months depending on the scope of the project and client’s needs, approval processes and revisions, and budgets. Our preference is the quick projects so we can move on to tackling your NEXT project and then the next, etc.
For example, if you’re working with our best film crew in the MSP area on a 1 day shoot and you’ve planned the entire script and the pre-production is ready to go, we could be looking at a 1 week turnaround for your initial edit and 3 days for each revision. Our video editing services offer the flexibility for you to reach your goals.
