Larger-than-life personalities. Engaging formats. Entertaining ideas.
Remarkable characters doing exceptional things. These are a few of my favorite things.

Local, State, Federal, National, International…   I’ve handled them all!
Audio, Video, Websites, Live Feeds, and anything else you or your business might need.

AUDIO, VIDEO, FILM, EVENT

Whether you need recording & mixing of a live show, operating a jib, boom, camera, or switcher, Technical Directing, or even just building a lighting truss… I’ve worn more hats than most haberdashers have sold. Check out my portfolio and for my “reel”… I have 4 profiles on IMDB.

AUDIO

My mission is to craft the highest quality story-telling for your brand. With over 30-years of nationally acclaimed and award-winning projects behind me, I am confident in my method and execution.

TELEVISION & VIDEO

The equivalent of filmmaking digitally in  three stages: pre-production, production, and post-production. Pre-production is the  planning process before filming begins. Production captures the content. Post selectively combines everything into a finished product that tells a story or communicates a message in either a live event setting (live production), or after an event has occurred (post-production).

FEATURE FILM

Filmmaking involves a number of discrete stages including an initial storyidea, or commission, through screenwritingcasting, shooting, sound recording and reproductionediting, and  takes place in many places around the world in a range of economic, social, and political contexts, and using a variety of technologies and cinematic techniques. Typically, it involves a large number of people, and can take from a few months to several years to complete.

Usually, all I need is a vague discription or even a sketch on a cocktail napkin and I can hit the ground running.

l

Design

Once I have a complete idea or even just the core-concept, the initial straw-man is usually put together really fast.

BUILD

It’s all about the content! …and if I have everything I need, then the complete build happens in the wink of an eye!

f

REFINE

Time to clean, polish, put the shine on, then finish it off with extensive testing, a good buffing and BAM! …new website smell.

Frank DiSalvo

“I wholeheartedly endorse Grant for those who want to do things differently when it comes to design. He is both analytical and creative in his process and takes the time to genuinely understand the business or individual he is collaborating with. Grant does not do “off the shelf”.  As a creative and positive person he is a wonder to work with, so it is not surprising he comes so highly recommended. I will remain a loyal client for many years to come.”

Rob MacDonald

“Everything you have created for SUBPAR CREATIONS is absolutely gorgeous and we cannot thank you enough. You’ve gone the extra mile at every turn and the results are designs and websites that exceed our clients’ wildest expectations. You provided the service and professionalism of a full-service agency even though you are a sole freelancer. We’d recommend Grant Garrison to anyone; you’re affordable enough for a startup and talented enough for a large company with deep pockets. Thanks Grant, for listening to our needs and going above and beyond contract.”
