Our Featured Work



We kickstart the process with us behind the camera and you, your brand and your people in front it. This is where the magic begins. Don’t be shy, we’re friendly and here to guide you through the shoot.


We spend countless hours breaking down, chopping up, and refining the footage to bring your story to life. Pick from multiple different editing styles to find the one that clicks most with both your vision and brand.



Think of the music as the pulse that keeps your story alive. It captures the soul and energy of your brand. If you have a particular soundtrack in mind, we’d love to hear it! If not, don’t worry, we’ll be sure to pick out something special.


Making the most of the time and prep that goes into shooting, we also happily offer authentically captured, professional photographs to enhance your online presence and elevate your brand marketing.



Transforming your big ideas into a captivating narrative, we help you design inspiring, shootable scripts that resonate with your audience and capture the essence of your brand.


Polishing up your video with the final touches, we offer you the opportunity to add in engaging and sophisticated motion graphics. We also custom-design animations from scratch.

    There's no question that Motivity knows how to make super high-end videos – just take a look at some of their example work. What's really amazing is how quickly Dave and the Motivity team can get the video done and how they do it so much more efficiently and at a fraction of the cost of what you would pay at a more traditional agency. They have the experience and frankly, the ingenuity, to exceed your expectations. It's worth your while to talk with Dave and Motivity when you're thinking about upping your game when it comes to high-quality video content.

    David is a unique package of real talent. He has a cinematographer's eye, a keen sense of how to get a person to relax and laugh, as well as keep someone's story interesting and authentic. We spent a day together and he felt family by the end of that day. That mix of utter professionalism, friendliness and humor is a rare combination. We cannot recommend David enough!

What we did

Motivity Pictures decided that instead of just shooting a video with a bunch of pretty pictures we would not only do that but we would extract the story of Michigan House.  We wanted to talk directly to the individuals that make Michigan House happen.  We wanted the to share their experience, and show the level of excitement that exists during Michigan House in Austin, Texas.   Creative Many certainly thought we accomplished telling their story.  Watch for yourself.

What they said

The thing that stands out about working with Motivity was the passion they brought to the process. David wasn’t just a guy providing a service - he was like another member of our team. During interviews, he was genuinely interested in the answers. While shooting, he was always striving to get every detail. And during edits, he cared deeply that right story was being told.
