Introducing: What Drives Us

The Skyscope Video Portrait Series

Our new series will dive (no pun intended) into our passions in and outside of our work at Skyscope.

From scuba diving to building and flying quadcopters, to web development, marketing and sales with us here at Skyscope, Jack’s always diving into new challenges, and sometimes that means hours of Youtube tutorials, buying new parts for his drone or taking apart something to figure out how it’s built.

For Jack, the mentality of a coder is about looking at the challenge in front of him and breaking it up into smaller components, learning what he needs to learn in order to solve the larger problem, putting it all back together in the end.

Each month we’ll release one Video Portrait featuring a member of our team. Check back with us and subscribe to our mailing list to be notified when the next post on video marketing tips, team member portraits or when generally entertaining videos roll out!

Story Behind the Series

People love to buy from other people. Seeing the heart, soul and persona of the company you choose to work with is an increasing factor in a purchase decision. There’s something about being able to connect with someone else’s experience and hobbies that satisfy us as members of a community, and many marketers have caught on (just think of your favorite thought leaders or experts that you enjoy following). Revealing the human element of a business creates a new level of understanding and connection; and once we understand people, we begin to trust them more. And once we trust them, we become more eager to work with them.

Along those same lines, it’s important to know who you’re working with. We believe that part of creating the ultimate video production experience here at Skyscope, is to share who we are. Not just as a company, but as the individuals that make up our team.

We are thankful that every single person on our team is entrepreneurial, extremely talented, and highly involved with personal passions and projects outside of Skyscope. And these passions drive us outside the office, feeding into how we contribute to the growth of Skyscope and the growth of the brands we work with.

Without further ado, we’d like to introduce you to our the amazingly badass Skyscope team. And as visual storytellers, what better way to do that than through video. From Scuba diving to rockin out, modding cars to sinking putts, we hope you enjoy our new series that highlights our team and helps you connect with the people that help tell your brand’s stories and drive your business.
