Welcome to Storymind

We tell authentic stories that engage and inspire

The best stories are the ones that inspire us. They spark new ideas, excite our emotions and motivate us to act.

Storymind Productions makes inspiring stories come to life with character-driven, documentary-style videos and interactive experiences. Our clients include nonprofits, craftspeople, community-minded businesses and creative agencies.

We believe story is paramount. The cameras don’t start recording until we’ve developed a message that resonates with your audience, identified compelling characters and crafted an engaging storyline.

How We Work

Telling stories effectively requires a well-honed process. Here's ours:

Discover

We work with our clients to determine goals, audiences and key messages. Together we choose characters, a tone and a style, and decide how to tell the story in the most creative, authentic and memorable way.

Capture

We interview our selected characters in a location and style that’s in step with our storyline. Then we capture scenes and footage that will engage viewers and support the narrative visually.

Craft

We assemble the footage into a compelling story, adding music and motion graphics. Our client provides reviews and feedback as the story comes to life.

Deliver

Our client receives a polished video that perfectly captures their story — one they can’t wait to share!

Who We Are

Dan Sadowsky, Storyteller

I tell stories to entertain, inform, engage, motivate — but mostly to inspire.

I’m drawn to people who inspire me with their creativity, their courage, or their commitment to a cause. The woodworker who builds furniture from reclaimed lumber. The refugee who helps others find their footing in a new land. The binational couple who fights for immigration reform at the risk of losing their life together.

Over the last two decades, I’ve practiced the craft of narrative storytelling for a variety of media. I’ve written for newspapers, magazines and organizations, led interactive content projects as web team leader at Mercy Corps and produced multimedia stories for OPB. These days I mostly produce videos, combining my ear for story and eye for visuals.

I’d love to know what stories you want to tell, and figure out how Storymind Productions can help.
