Media Folk Supports Arts and Culture with Technology

PHOTO & VIDEO

Professional photography and video production make stories come alive. We’ll craft a dynamic visual story for the target audience you need to reach.

DIGITAL ARCHIVES

Don’t let your multimedia collect dust in a forgotten file. We’ll help you set up a workflow that cares for your content and allows easy sharing.

WEBSITES

Creating a website takes careful planning with your core goals and values. We’ll work together to curate or manage a site that is fresh, clear, and creative.

EDUCATION

We can create content for you, or we can teach you how to do it yourself. We love working with communities to become comfortable with technology.
