Video content is the most watched type of content on the internet, and the amount of videos watched online is growsing daily. We know how vital videos can be to a company’s brand, and we want to convey a message in a creative and impactful way.

Our goal is for your video to not only resonate with your target audience, but more importantly, cause them to take action that brings you more business.

Social Media

Connecting with your audience through social media platforms is crucial to brand awareness. However, most business owners don’t have the time or have a difficult time keeping up with the latest social media trends.

Our team can take that off of your plate, posting relevant content your audience relates to, allowing them to connect with you with behind-the-scenes information, and discussing the latest events and promotions.

Meet The Team

Pat McCarty

Guy in the 419

I was fired.

That’s where this story begins. And as a husband and a father, it’s a very scary thing to have happen. A few days later, while having lunch with my dad, he asked me what I’d like to do. What brings me joy? I told him that I like making videos. He said, “Well, do that then! Don’t worry about money right now. Do something that makes you happy.”​

And so I did. What began as a personal daily blog, citing my day-to-day activities, slowly grew into videos that were promoting great things that this area has to offer. I decided to make that the purpose of the videos.​

On November 5, 2016, I launched Guy in the 419 on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter, making videos for people that promoted what they do in this area that makes it great.
