The thing that drew me to Creativebug was the authenticity of the videos. It's not about the lenses or angles they use—it's a mindset. The team sees what they do as ‘artists shooting artists.’ That's the Creativebug essence.
We attract passionate people who are all artists themselves, so everyone loves coming to work. We are motivated to grow Creativebug’s success so we can all continue doing what we love. We feel like a family, and our instructors are like favorite cousins who come to visit.
I looked for creative people who were passionate about the maker space, but I also just wanted people who gave a damn. It's really hard to find people who are like, 'Yeah! I'm totally into this!' versus people who just need a job and want to say they work at a startup.
Everyone here is really creative. That’s one of the main things I ask when hiring someone. What do you do besides being a shooter?
My favorite thing about working here is the people. Every single person is so different: our personalities, our backgrounds, where we’ve come from. But we’re like a family. We even fight like brothers and sisters sometimes.
Most of the producton work I’ve done was nothing as creative as this. Because we work with artists, you just turn around and there’s a project you can play around with.
I’m really excited to see where we go as a company. I think we are in a position to realize what we want to become.
