LeniCam Video Productions was formed in 2003 as a part time business and has grown to an LLC corporation with four business areas; Corporate, Weddings, Sports, and Special Events. Because of this breadth we have been in contact with people from many walks of life.
We are a small business, jointly owned by John Lenihan, and Sue Lenihan at 50% each. We have a core team, and we have extended vendors to supplement that, depending on the type of skill that we need. We have a diverse core team made of professionals of many different ethnic backgrounds and ages. Our extended team includes voice over talent of all kinds of people. Once we did a video for a company in Brazil. We had to find not just a Portuguese-speaking voice-over person, but also one who spoke the correct dialect of the Telecommunications persons to whom the video was intended.
Since Mr. Lenihan has started other businesses, and seen a number of production companies go out of business, he is pursuing a model of minimal full-time employees and cultivate a network of skilled contractors who can bring the best expertise to the client’s needs at that time. We hold training days, company picnics, and all the things that an employee company would do. The average time our ten core team members have worked together is about 8 years.
We are in this business for the long term. We have worked with some of the same clients for 10 years. We get Christmas cards from event planners and clients. We receive pictures of the children of our wedding couples as they start to have children years later. Sometimes we call a meeting with our clients to say that there may be a better or less expensive way to shoot that cooking show or humanitarian marketing event. We have been working with a group of doctors who have an annual meeting since 2013. Each year we have improved their end product, while keeping their cost the same. Because Mr. Lenihan’s background includes being a VP of Marketing, he is very keen on research and testing.
What makes us unique is that we are constantly innovating to make sure that you will have an end product better than you ever received before. We make sure that all our processes and equipment has a backup so we will not miss anything. We have redundant microphones, lights, storage, batteries, cameras, and tripods. We have ways of compensating for mistakes that speakers make, lighting problems, computer problems, and noisy environments. In fact, we duplicate the video files right after the shoot on multiple storage mechanisms every second of recorded video, before we even start to edit it.
Some of our team members:
All of our team members have between 3 and 10 years working together with our processes, equipment, and know exactly what to do. In addition, as changes may happen, each of our team members is very gracious and works well with all types of situations and people. We wear crisp, black pants shirt and shoes and always look professional, and always in the right place at the right time.
