Happy Birthday to the Big Boss Man (the producer, not the late professional wrestler) himself.
From our farewell lunch with the wonderful Lindsay Becker. (We’re going to see Lindsay this week so she’s not too far away, but still… Raise a buffalo chicken drumstick to the great Lindsay Becker.
Lindsay Becker has been working with Knack Factory for 7 glorious years. And now! She is on her way to new, fantastic opportunities. Lindsay will be getting back to her roots in photography, plus continuing to work with our friends at bluShift Aerospace in an operations capacity.
Lindsay came to us as an intern and immediately blew our minds. She rose through the ranks of the company quickly, and at every step helped us to grow, to always reach for being better, and challenged us to always reach beyond our own definitions and expectations of what great work can be. If you know Lindsay, you know she is dynamic in all ways. We are so lucky to know her, and so lucky to have had her on our team. We are so excited for her. We are heartened to have had this run with her. We don’t want to over-use the word great, but Lindsay Heald is great and we are eternally grateful to her for everything she’s brought to this company.
From yesterday’s production for GWI with our friends at Blaze Partners. We are grateful for this small, extraordinarily talented crew with great on screen talent.

Welcome aboard Mike Novelli!
Mike will be working with us through this summer to expand our overall production capacity. He has had a passion for filmmaking for over twenty years and loves producing story-driven films focusing on beautiful landscape and amazing people. According to Mike, when he is not working you'll find him trying all of the pizza, taking his mountain bike off some sweet jumps, and adventuring with his partner and their dogs.
We are excited to make some beautiful work with Mike!
Thomas oversees production on a set he literally built with his own hands. Another wonderful production day with a tremendous team for Maine Spirits with our friends at Blaze Partners.
It’s officially official! Welcome to the team, Derek Brigham! Derek has been working with us in post production for a while now and we are so excited to bring him on to the team. Derek, of course, brings amazing skills in post to Knack Factory along with a seemingly always upbeat disposition and a velvety voice that we’ve used in at least one voiceover at this point. We are so lucky to have Derek on board.
Looking back on some of our work in higher education settings as we plan for (among other things) a Summer rich in even more higher education productions.
Happy Birthday to @starkeyt2, who has been with us since before we even incorporated. We appreciate you so much, Tommy! Thanks fir everything you do!
We had a lovely day of production at @saltpumpclimbing with our friends from @blaze_partners.
We had a lovely day shooting @sterlingrope at @saltpumpclimbing with our friends at @blaze_partners.
As we’re enjoying this lovely spring day, we are looking back on some of our work for Sebago Clean Waters.

Looking back on some of our work with Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts.
Love this shot of Aaron Caldwell we captured while producing some videos for Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts. Aaron is lead organizer for Queeramics.
Another behind the scenes shot from our recent series of productions with @leonspeakers.
Kurt, Colby’s eldest RA, busted for a noise complaint by campus security. We kid! Kurt directs a crew of Colby College students in a recent production.
A look back at some screenshots from of our work with Mixtiles.
"I feel extremely blessed to be able to work with my team everyday. And we could not do what we do if it wasn’t for our amazing employees and partners."
Kurt Graser was featured in this lovely profile by Saco and Biddeford Savings!
It all started while I was in college. On a whim, I took a video production class and just fell in love with the idea of doing that as a career... If I hadn’t spent over 15 years learning differ...
Tiny assistant. 🐈⬛ 🎥 🖤
A quick peek at some of our recent work for our friends and clients at Chilton Furniture.
It’s Tadin’s last day with us here at Knack Factory. He’s heading out into the world to focus more on the filmmaking side of his vast skillset and we are endlessly stoked for him. We have been the luckiest to get to work with Tadin for 4 years, see him grow, and have him help *us* grow and up our game and overall standards of production. It’s been a joy. Tadin, we love you, we are grateful for you, and look forward to collaborating when you’re able.

"In a career spanning more than six decades, Bryan's vibrantly colored collage and paper-cut illustrations adorned the pages of some 50 books, folktales and poetry collections by such acclaimed writers as Langston Hughes, Nikki Giovanni and Walter Dean Myers. The books he wrote and illustrated himself include Infinite Hope about his experiences serving in the segregated Army during WWII, Beat the Story-Drum: Pum-Pum, his retelling of Nigerian tales and Beautiful Blackbird, a story that celebrates community and individuality."
We are so sad to learn of Ashley Bryan's passing. It was a tremendous honor to get to talk with him in our work on the Beautiful Black Bird Children's Book Festival. He was truly a giant.
He created stories centered on African and African American folk tales and his vibrantly colored collage and paper-cut illustrations adorned the pages of some 50 books.
"This theater, I feel like it has some magic about it, as cliché as it sounds. We come in here and it’s like a second home. We’re able to talk about these things, and feel safe, and get encouragement and literally be able to blossom under this roof ... It’s just amazing."
It's so great seeing Smooth Feather Youth get recognized in this WCSH6 report. We love supporting this wonderful endeavor.
The high school students wrote, directed, and acted in 'The Shadows We Speak', a film that was recently accepted into the Boston International Kids Film Festival.
bluShift Aerospace has been an amazing client of ours for years, pushing us technically and creatively, to create compelling content for their bio-fuel-powered, Maine-made rockets. This movie trailer concept ended up being a ton of fun to script, shoot and edit, and was developed by our team from start to finish.
Special thanks to Neil Shelley for filming this with us. Drone shots by Thomas Starkey and editing by Tadin Jeongshin Brego 🙌
Making products shine ✨ 😎

Dreaming of warm summer days where we follow Malley around in search of the perfect clay digging site. From a project with Watershed and Malley at Halloween Clay Works.
