The Fazio Video & Media Production Concept
From the first time I picked up a camera, I began to look at the world differently.
I saw each moment in time move by, but I also saw that you could capture those single moments in time forever.
Having first started as a photographer; I know the importance of composition in every shot and also knowing how to capture that “special moment.
”And that is why we exist… so we can capture those “special moments” you have in this life.
We can provide you with what you need in a clear and unique way. Whether you need a videographer for:
Weddings, sports, special events, social work, or just for your weekend Hobby… We can capture what really matters to you.
The other reason we exist is to give a voice to those who can’t otherwise.
After our years of traveling and social work,
we saw how much influence Media has on the world. We saw that Media can be
used to bring awareness and open people’s eyes. We want to take at least 6 months out of the year
to serve people with out charge. There are so many people around the world that have incredible stories,
but have no way of telling them... leaving them hopeless. We want to give them “a voice” in this world and enable them to be seen.
By working with us during our stay in the states, you are enabling us to help less fortunate people around the world as well.
Recent Media Works & Designs
An artist can paint a picture with emotion and passion. They can even communicate a feeling or meaning through a painting. We aim to do the same thing through our work. Cinematography communicates in that same way through motion pictures, and we want to showcase what matters most to you through the lens of our camera.
Writing & Directing
There is much more to filming then just the camera work and we understand that. We want to take the time and sit down with you to understand what you want to communicate. Then take your idea, transform it into words, and bring it to life in a motion picture. Check out our movie gallery, where you can see a few films written and directed by us.
Along with video work, we can also help you in other areas in Media as well. We can help you to find a direction and an image for your company that fits you… How you may ask? We can help design your Logo, increase your business marketing, and provide a variety of graphic design.

Everything I saw in my head came to reality. On top of it all, James and Katherine made it easy and relaxing for me and I came out with an outstanding project in the end.

After spending some time living in ’’Generacion‚’’ I realized something.
These kids are amazing and they all have amazing stories. I thought to myself,
how could I show their stories to the world... Through media. So that is what I
set out to do and that is what we still plan to do. We want to return to Peru and
make a documentary about their stories and how the house got started. Eventually,
when the documentary is finished, we would like to make a feature film on this subject.
There are more than 30 Million Slaves in the world today, more than at any other point in human History
--David Batstone, Not for Sale Founder and Director
Why we want this movie to happen
With the documentary and the feature film, we want to show that Human Trafficking and poverty are still big issues
in our society. So many of these children end up in Western Countries as sex slaves or cheap workers for our clothes.
We want to bring more awareness to western countries. We want to bring
the harsh reality into their homes to bring a change in our society and in the lives of these children.
This film should be a gleam of hope for children all around the world.
