No Umbrella Media Portland, Maine’s friendly neighborhood video production team, since 2009.


Cool to see how the infamous Bean boots all come together. It’s a pretty hands on process by a great team here in Maine. Excited to help edit this episode together. Enjoy!

On the second episode of Bean Boots and Brews, we go behind the scenes at L.L.Bean Manufacturing to see how our iconic Bean Boots are made. Cheers to Maine craftsmanship!

Our film “One Week At A Time” is about four life long friends and their 30 year endeavor to sea kayak around New England and the Canadian Maritimes. Huge shout-out to L.L.Bean for the opportunity to pursue this story.

We are proud of the work, and inspired by the lives of these four Maine men.
Hope you guys enjoy the film!

L.L.Bean is proud to present ONE WEEK AT A TIME, a No Umbrella Media Film. Over more than three decades, four friends kayaked a complete circumnavigation of the New England coast – from Maine, to the Canadian Maritimes, to New York City. 3200 miles. 32 years. 4 friends. One incredible adventure. See more L.L.Bean films:

{VIDEO TEASER} — “One Week At A Time” - Four life long friends complete a 30 year circumnavigation of New England by sea kayak. Starting in their 20s, circa 1983, Tom, Mike, Ben, and Charlie have paddled together, trip-by-trip, checking off coastline segments along the New England and Canadian maritimes. They’ve managed to stay healthy and stay friends along the way, and now close the loop in NYC.

This is a great list of tangible reasons why buying local actually benefits our local economy.

(this list is from the folks at Portland Buy Local, of which No Umbrella Media is proud to be a sustaining business member.)

In an increasingly homogenized world, communities that preserve their one-of-a-kind businesses and distinctive character are more likely to attract entrepreneurs and new investment. Portlanders place a high value on individuality and consider our homegrown enterprises a source of pride. They are als...

Sara Hallie Richardson: "Phoenix," The New Album

Sara Hallie Richardson is someone we've had the distinct pleasure to work with on different projects around town the past couple years. She is kind, generous and ... wicked talented.

Right now, Sara - and co-conspirator Sean Morin - are at work producing a new album, and they are funding it using the Pledge Music platform.

What's cool about this effort is they're using the production as an opportunity to collaborate with their favorite Maine musicians.

Check out the video we helped them film/produce below and listen to their story!

Having experienced the work of Sara Hallie Richardson Music in other venues, we know this new album will be a hit too!

Get involved in the making of the new SHR album, "Phoenix"!

No Umbrella Media is video production company based in Portland, Maine.

The name No Umbrella comes from the old newsprint outdoor rag that Nick Callanan (and Kristen Kaiser!) used to publish back in the day: “No Umbrella – A Reader for River People” published its first issue of outdoor-inspired writing and photography on June 22, 2002 in The Forks, Maine.

Then, in 2007, after 37 issues and 80,000 total copies, Nick made the difficult – but obvious – decision to cease publication. The internet – not to mention the recession – had arrived in central Maine and small newspapers were toast.

Fast forward to a beautiful fall day in 2009: Nick and Nick were kayaking at Steep Falls on the Saco River. Nick B. – who at this point had been working in video for 10 years – starts talking about making outdoor video content for the audience of No Umbrella. So they did. And it was fun and challenging. Within weeks, they were hired to make three different promo videos. From there it was game on.

At No Umbrella Media, our clients hire us to build video tools. We work with clients to understand all project elements: genre, messaging, audience, versions, channels, timeline, budget, personnel, resources, regulations and other nuanced factors.

We have experience producing and directing: documentaries, event coverage (including concert Blu-ray, weddings, awards ceremonies, keynote addresses), presentation tools, product videos, journalism-style video packages, many outcome-based web videos (recruitment, event promotion, crowd-funding), digital campaign tools, and plenty of other weird projects.

We hope our work speaks for itself and we pride ourselves on being professional, responsive, and easy to work with. If you’d like to talk about your video idea, please reach out at [email protected].
