Bootstrapper Studios December Launch Special Extravaganza

Yes, that says $139 for a video.

You get a 3 camera shoot, with a video delivered in 24 hours for just $139 ($209 if you aren’t a Hub member) from 12/8 through the end of December.

Just contact us at to book your time. Or visit us at The Hub for a quick tour.

How is it so inexpensive one might ask?

Go ahead. Ask. Don’t read on until you do.

Since you asked, it comes down to live edits.

What that means is that all three cameras, and even a laptop (for slides or app demos), are fed into a central switcher, recorded and edited in real time. After the session, we will trim, add any provided graphics or images to the front and/or back and you can even pick music to go along with it from our stock music library.

You’ll get a link to download your video so you can upload it to the video platform of your choice.

Like any good Scout, you just need to be prepared. Have your script, talking points, demo, etc. rehearsed and ready to go before you walk in front of the cameras.

There are a few more technical and logistical details, but you might be more interested in just chatting with us about them rather than trying to read a long post outlining everything.

So, just jump in the elevator, email us at, tweet us at @StBootstrapper, or heck, just reply to this thread.

Made it to the Big (Mammoth) Screen

Yesterday at the 2014 GeekWire Awards Ceremony, we got to experience one of our videos on, what EMP calls a mammoth screen. 60 feet wide by 33 feet tall. One of the largest LED screens in the world.

It was amazing seeing something Maurice, Adam and I made that HUGE!

Thanks GeekWire for inviting us out.

You can watch it on your screen, it won’t be as big, but if you hold your screen really close to your face, it might feel similar.

A Little Note From Our Own @CoachGallimore

Thanks Coach Gallimore. We really enjoy working with you, too.

Hi There

This whole thing started years ago around the rise of YouTube and the proliferation of online video.

Mostly as a networking tool, my wife Jen and I started showing up at various tech events around Seattle to capture video of the wonderful presentations folks were doing.

After years of documenting the community and accumulating various configurations of gear, it dawned on us one day that what we’d snowballed along the way was a great little multi-camera HD broadcast studio.

It’s funny when you realize that you’ve bootstrapped a facility that not too many years ago used to fill semi-trucks and cost millions of dollars.

Funny how the world changes.

Having high quality production services available to rapid prototype video content for businesses at a very low cost just seems like an interesting thing to make available to the wider community.

This is how Bootstrapper Studios was born and is an invitation to all sorts of interesting questions.

We’re setting up shop at Founder’s Co-op / TechStars headquarters in the South Lake Union (SLU) startup neighborhood of Seattle. Drop us a line if you’ve got a project in mind:
