Every business, every organization has a story to tell.


Our story began 30+ years ago, with its roots in television production. I started producing a weekly 30-minute fitness TV show in 1988. The series would run for 13 years. At its peak, it was syndicated in 48 states with a reach of over 60 million cable households. I did all the shooting and editing, and produced more than forty 1/2-hour TV shows each year. At the end of the the 13-year run I had produced over 500 episodes. That ambitious production load provided the foundation, the bedrock for Grindstone.  Today we produce content for websites and social media, TV commercials, and documentaries.

This is a time of unprecedented opportunity for video. Video is less expensive to  produce and easier to consume than ever before. It’s an important communications, sales, and marketing tool that is now within reach of almost any business or organization.

At Grindstone, we thrive on helping you produce effective, high-quality video to reach your audience and your goals. From commercials to website videos, on-line association directories to non-profit fundraising, Grindstone Productions will partner with you to get it done.

Grindstone Productions. . . quality video made easy and affordable.
