“Chris is a true professional who takes great pride in his work and has fun doing it,” Tracy Garabedian, Director of Development for the Special Olympics Rhode Island, said recently about Chris Babiana, the owner of Streamline HD, a Bellingham-based video-production service. Garabedian continued with, “What Chris has put together for us has been top quality. His work tells a “story,” one that you want to watch over and over. We are very excited to continue working with StreamlineHD on future events.”
Babiana’s client list includes Keller Williams Luxury Division (MA), Cushman and Wakefield (NY), George’s of Galilee (RI) and a host of other businesses both large and small and catering to a variety of industries. Most recently, his company has been engaged to produce campaign videos for Bellingham Selectmen Chairman Mike Soter as he runs for State Representative.
Many business owners “haven’t quite wrapped their heads around the value of video marketing,” says Babiana. For the smaller client, he can produce a high-quality production in just under a week while maintaining the client’s budget and deadline.
StreamlineHD provides clients with TV commercials, event videos, training videos, documentaries, music videos, business profile videos, go-fund-me campaigns, and more. In addition to video production, StreamlineHD also offers commercial photography and specializes in time-lapse. “We shoot product advertising campaigns both large and small,” says Babiana.
“We’re all about brand recognition,” says Babiana, “a well-thought-out video branding campaign lends to a larger ROI. It provides an avenue for a potential customer to become comfortable with the product or service they’re about to invest in.”
Babiana’s customers pin their videos to the top of their Facebook pages, use them in e-mail marketing blasts and put them on their websites‚Ä¶ all of which costs them nothing. Research shows that businesses that use video grew revenue 49% faster than non-users and that video on a landing page can increase conversations by 80% or more.
What he loves about the business is the opportunity for “creativity. “No two jobs or clients are the same,” he explains. “We’re excited to meet with new clients and talk about their company, why they decided to go into their line of work and what drives them. We learn about their brand, target audience, budget, and expectations and then develop a shot list and discuss filming locations. Editing is where creativity flows, using a combination of royalty-free music, animations, voiceovers and other techniques to make it pop. When editing, a ten-hour day flies by in a snap. I’m honored that my clients put their trust in me to promote their business and brand.”
Babiana notes, “We are the only studio in the area with an infinity wall which provides an infinite white background and that offers green screen for video and photo shoots.” He also rents the studio to other photographers.
While visiting the Florida Keys in 2008 Chris was invited on a charter fishing trip where he recorded the entire day and presented the captain with a short film. “This is where it all began,” so he decided to stay in the Keys and founded Florida Keys Offshore Media. “There were no businesses offering video documentaries for charter fishing customers, and it ended up being a popular service.”
But ties to his family here in Bellingham brought him back a short time later, where he founded StreamlineHD. Today, he has a portfolio of clients—large and small—that keeps his business expanding. He offers clients “a collaborative team of creatives and provides full service from conception to delivery.”
“Looking for a production company to create your next business commercial?” writes the marketing manager at Enpro Environmental Services. “I have to pass along my great experience with Chris, owner of StreamlineHD. Very creative, talented and speedy with project turnaround.”
“It’s our job,” says Babiana, “to make your business look amazing. Our philosophy is simple: deliver exceptional results on time and on budget.”
“Whether a large company or the smaller hometown mom and pop business, we treat every project with the same enthusiasm, attention to detail and commitment.”
