About

Brian DeFrees

 

I breed… ideas, opportunities, solutions, motivation, and creative multimedia.

I look… at each day as a journey where something is learned and goals are achieved.

I run… on a non-stop musical soundtrack playing through my fingers, speakers or in my head.

I love… racing, driving, traveling, exploring and experiencing new places, faces, and cultures.

I am… always seeking the next level and uncovering the next adventure.

 

I’m experienced in Digital Optimization, Project Management, Creative Direction, Marketing, Advertising, Social Media, Photography, Video Production, Web Design and Graphic Design.

My work has generated over 1 Million views on YouTube, appeared in Times Square, on Virgin Airlines, QVC Shopping Network, McDonalds conferences and at the Circuit of the Americas F1 Racetrack. I’ve been featured on news networks and websites worldwide including CBS News, AOL, ABC News, Yahoo, the Huffington Post, Engadget and Mashable.

Brian is an intuitive artist and "gets it" regarding the final product goals without a great deal of explanation or supervision. I have worked with him several times over the past few years, and each experience has been better than the last. I would highly recommend him for any project - you won't be disappointed.

Brian is pivotal to the creative process. He is disciplined at taking a video project on from the initial idea phase and seeing it through to the final product. We have worked together on countless video shoots and each time I found I had something left to learn from him.

Brian's work ethic and talent made it easy for him to take the client's strategic direction and produce creative at a very impressive level. His ability to oversee the video department from the initial stages of copywriting to completed final production are among the many strong assets Brian possesses.

Brian's work is consistently top-notch and we have been extremely pleased with the results. Although he has no background in our industry, he quickly learned the language and the expectations of our audience and produced media that effectively speaks to them.
