ABOUT

Big Picture is a full-service creative group dedicated to telling powerful stories through video and live events. We are based in the San Francisco Bay Area and comprised of passionate storytellers, award-winning directors, and producers. We travel the world to tell any kind of video story and produce every kind of event experience.

What sets us apart? We think that when marketing works, there’s an essential transfer — that moment where your customer really gets it. And by “it”, we mean the essence of your brand story, the big picture as conveyed by the millions of details that explain, educate, entertain, compel and inspire. When your customers get it, they feel connected to your brand in a way that matters…in other words, they believe.
