Power of Stories

The Power of Storytelling
 

For thousands of years, humans have been passing down stories from generation to generation: stories that inspire and move people to do great things.

We're continuing that tradition in new and innovative ways, through film and video.

You've got stories to tell. Stories about journeys, experiences, lives. These stories can take many forms: narratives, businesses, products that enrich lives.

Our Approach

Coffe Behind the Scenes
 

We are artists, and in our book, story is first. Every single one is different and has its own specific needs, challenges, and audience.

When you choose Block One to craft any kind of video or film for you, you're choosing an experience. We'll get to know you and your story, then work with you on a creative plan. We've got a fantastic pool of talent, plus the right tools to make it come to life.

Let's take you to the next level.

Geno made his filmmaking debut with his dynamic, 12-year-old adaptation of Lord of the Rings, shot in glorious Hi-8 tape format. Just the beginning of his storytelling journey, he’s gone on to capture - in various capacities - short films; commercials; documentaries; a feature film; reality television shows; promotional videos; weddings and events, and more. He has worked internationally and is slated to have his work featured in Scottsdale, AZ’s ‘Museum of the West’ sometime in 2015.

He’s also in love with a beautiful woman named Laura.

Above all (except Laura), he loves stories, no matter what form they take. And he loves collaborating with others in order to tell them with utmost professionalism and excellence.

What began with a Handycam and papier-mâché Pharaoh crown somehow wound up turning into a career for Chad. He started out gung-ho, made a few short films, realized they were terrible — then settled in for the long haul of learning the art of storytelling.

Several years into the journey now, he's worked on numerous short films, documentaries, and promotional films. He's adept at operating Glidecam/Steadicam, general cinematography, and screenwriting. In 2014, a promo he made won a Bronze Telly Award.

Samantha, his wife, manages to keep up with Chad's adventures. Together, they're about to welcome their first baby into this big and curious world!
