About Patterson Media Team

We are visual consultants.
Video should be a core component of your recruiting, marketing, public relations, and development campaigns. We can guide you toward the best strategies for using video effectively.

We are visual storytellers.
We take the story you need to tell and we find the most memorable, compelling way to tell it visually.

Our work gets the results you need.

Patterson Media Team has 25 years of experience designing and producing award-winning video productions for higher education clients. We formed our own company in 2000 with only two clients, and those first two clients are still working with us on a regular basis.

Higher education is our specialty, however we also produce sales and marketing videos for the health care industry … patient and physician education programs … fundraising videos for non-profit corporations … and public television programs.
