With almost 30 years into the business of video and motion production, Jim Stiener has seen several sea changes of technology and trends wash through the industry. He shot nearly 50 sidesplitting promos with actor Ryan Reynolds for both Deadpool movies and his eight Super Bowl spots for GoDaddy.com made headlines – the commercial with Joan Rivers, Danica Patrick and Jillian Michaels received 110 million views and gave GoDaddy.com the biggest financial boost in its history. Not too shabby! Jim will explain how video can help you build your brand and the importance of knowing the purpose and voice of every video project.
With almost 30 years into the business of video and motion production, Jim has seen several sea changes of technology and trends wash through the industry. But for him, there has always remained one constant: Listening.
From his first position in 1989 as a Junior Account Executive responsible for management and acquisition of new accounts, to Director of Sales and Marketing, to becoming an award-winning Executive Producer with two Emmy nominations under his belt, Jim has honed the art of listening.
Understanding not only the tasks at hand, but the purpose of the project and the voice of the client have been the keys to not only his success, but that of the clients’. And it’s that connection through listening that has laid the foundation for Jim and his team to build Mirror 34 Productions into a leading production company.
Whether his past life as student at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse or his current iteration as the co-owner of Mirror 34, Jim loves listening to a story. And, telling a few himself. With a touch of humor mixed in for good measure.
