We are videographers, editors and animators. We are writers, designers and visionaries. We are storytellers. And we work side by side with you, as a virtual extension of your team.

Collaboration for the Win

But most of all, we are team-minded professionals who love solving problems, whether it’s helping get the word out about a new product or service, or developing a whole brand and messaging strategy. We Knights are happiest when we are sitting around our version of the “round table” – brainstorming creative solutions for our clients, and then strategizing a plan to implement those solutions.

Maximize Your Impact

We’re experts at making videos that tell your brand story, sell your product, and explain what you do. But beyond just making the videos, we know how and where to place them for maximum impact. We will guide you through every step of the process.

And if we don’t have the expertise to help you in-house, we can almost guarantee that within our extensive network are the experts you need to connect with to get the job done right, whether you’re looking for website development, SEO work, digital marketing, public relations, social media management, or any number of other services.

The White Knight Story

People often ask about the White Knight story – where did we get the name, anyway? The truth is, Knights embody the very qualities that we like to bring to the table when we work with our clients. This short video gives you an overview of the Knightly advantage.

 

What Makes Us Different?

We like to start by seeing the big picture, and then taking an approach that is collaboratively team-oriented, both internally and with our clients. We believe strongly in the collective creative genius of many minds working together on one common goal. We know a lot about video, but we also come from a broader marketing perspective, and that informs the work we do and helps us to work harder and better for our clients.

A Nationwide Network of Resources

We are connectors, with an incredible network of experts from across the United States, and this means that we are uniquely positioned to customize a team for your videography needs. But it goes well beyond that. We have a well-vetted and highly trusted network of service providers, offering almost anything your business may need assistance with, from website development and SEO audits and management, impactful digital marketing, to creative promotional products and gifts, app development, and much, much more.

If you are looking for services outside of video production, please reach out to us and ask. We have access to the best of the best and absolutely stand by our referrals and strategic partners.
