About Big Pictures
Big Pictures is a Denver, Colorado-based media production company specializing in providing high-end production services to the film and television industry – including fully-equipped camera crews.
Big Pictures was founded in 1991 in Los Angeles by Tom Miller. Tom had graduated with a BA in Film and TV Production from the University of Florida School of Journalism in 1988, and began his career as a staff cameraman and writer for a production company in Chicago working on a thirteen-part documentary series for PBS called On the Waterways*, narrated by Jason Robards. When the project was complete, Tom moved to LA to go freelance and begin building a client base – shooting for companies like Disney, Fox, and ESPN, as well as a number of commercial and corporate production companies, independent producers, and small businesses.
Tom moved Big Pictures to Colorado in 1993, and continued growing the client base and investing in equipment. Over the years, Tom’s work has garnered numerous accolades – including the Peabody Award, The Edward R. Murrow Award, the May Burton Award for Production Excellence, and multiple Telly Awards.
Today Big Pictures is the first call in the Denver area for networks, production companies, independent producers, and businesses large and small. We specialize in beautiful lighting and compelling b-roll for documentaries, commercials, corporate productions, and high-end feature segments for programs airing on ESPN, National Geographic, Discovery, PBS, ABC News, NBC, The Oprah Winfrey Show, MTV, the History Channel, and more. We shoot locally, in the surrounding states, and anywhere in the world our clients send us!
Throughout this growth, our principles have remained the same:
· Provide superior production services
· Operate with the utmost honesty and integrity
· Have fun doing it
Towards this end, we’ve traveled the world helping our clients tell great stories with moving media. Let us help you tell yours!
