Turn your message or story into a documentary.


Let Us Be Your Producer

A 60-90 second Micro-Documentary is honest storytelling for a modern audience. If you’ve got a story to tell, a short documentary can be the fastest, easiest way to get it into video. Professional interviews, on-location footage of your organization or project, and simple, elegant graphics and titles get your message across in a format that’s right at home on social media and the web.

Work with an experienced production and editing team to show off the key parts of your story. In your first conversation with a Human Being team member, we start getting to know you, what matters to you, and what you need to say.

You’ll work with us to develop interview plans and determine who should be speaking on camera. We’ll help your vision come to life with our ten years of filmmaking experience.

Making Micro-documentaries

Micro-Documentary packages range from a single filming date to much longer engagements, and we’ll schedule based on your needs.

An experienced documentary director will conduct interviews in a way that helps you or your subject get to the heart of the message, and our editors will distill your footage into a clear, confident documentary piece.

Human Being Productions has been making micro-documentaries for commercial advertising, press, human resource videos, and other purposes for nearly a decade. Based in Baltimore, MD, we’ve been creating new films and shorts for a wide variety of clients. Our documentaries have been used for social media, training, traditional media, and have been seen by hundreds of thousands of eyes. See some of our documentaries and shorts below.

TESTIMONIALS Hear From Our Customers

Matt was the photographer for our wedding ceremony in the Baltimore Inner Harbor. I have never been more impressed with a vendor. From the beginning, working with him was easy. Communication flowed quickly, all questions were answered without any waiting, and the price quoted was very reasonable (it was also the exact price I paid). The photo's were incredible. Matt was able to capture people smiling that never ever smile for a camera, he was able to catch expressions that family and friends made that truly express the happiness and joy of our occasion. The photo's are simply incredible, and ones that I will cherish forever. I got married in the pouring rain, and had a blast taking photos outside with Matt's direction wearing rain boots and carrying colorful umbrellas. It made the day even more perfect.

Shannon and the team at Human Being were great to work with. They were very communicative and Kevin delivered a great product under the restrictions of our tight deadline. Highly recommend them for production work in MD!

Jon Rehr

We hired human being productions for our wedding video and we were completely blown away. They had our first video done the week of the wedding. They were professional, on time, and such a pleasure to work with on our wedding day, and it was fun to have them around. The quality of the video was perfect, and they chose the perfect music to play as well. They emailed us offering to make any changes that we wanted but we could not find a single thing. I HIGHLY recommend this company for any video projects you have.

Human Being Productions photographed my wedding, and I couldn't be happier with the result. They are kind, professional, and fun. I highly recommend them!

Martha Robichaud

We hired HB Productions to record our wedding ceremony in late September 2017. Our ceremony was the most important to us and we wanted to be sure we could share it for years to come.

Matthew worked with us on sight, day-of and he made us feel very relaxed. He didn't need much from us which was great on a day when everyone needs you. He found himself a perfect spot to caputre what we wanted but out of the way from the event.

The finished recording was turned around quickly and we are very happy with the finished product and price.

We will defintely use them again for videography!
