WHAT WE DO

In the simplest of terms...'We tell your story!' We tell your story by transforming it into beautiful visuals, adding the bells and whistles and our secret sauce... creativity.

But we don't stop there... in our years of video production, we've noticed that many businesses hire us (or anyone) to create a video, and then what? Many businesses don't have the time, know-how or resources to put it to work.

This is how we've stumbled upon our unique business model. We're kind of a hybrid, or maybe a really cool mutt (like a bulldog and boxer mix or labradoodle). We're creators, marketers and business people, we understand each perspective and mold our video creative and video strategy around that so you're not just getting a video... you're getting creative content, marketing, strategy, and most importantly a partner.

WHO WE ARE

We are creators, marketers, entrepreneurs, writers, and the list goes on! You can't put us in a box... mainly because we probably wouldn't fit, but creatively our talents and ideas are too big too!

You won't find a more passionate and dedicated video team to partner with. We're successful because we are able to immerse ourselves in your organization, product, service, story... whatever it might be, and together we can make something pretty amazing.

We're growing and changing all the time; get to know some of the GCF peeps that make it all happen.

OWNER & CHIEF TROUBLEMAKER

ZACH NIGH

A LITTLE ABOUT ME: I am a passionate, faith-based entrepreneur who takes pride in my everyday commitments to family, team, clients and community. My strong leadership is felt on the set of any shoot I direct and I work to make the process easy and effective. When i’m not closing business deals and directing i’m is letting my competitive nature shine through, playing several sports and being a dedicated family man to my wife and two children.

MY WHY: Since the 5th grade I have been excited and passionate about filmmaking. I saved up all of my hard earned chore money to buy my first video camera…. back in the day of Mini DV tapes. I started recording my life. Whether is was short movies, Seinfeld reenactments, sports, or pranks. Everywhere I went I took the camera with me.

VIDEO VIGILANTE

ZACH NELSON

A LITTLE ABOUT ME: I’m a visual storyteller who can bring any story to life. I have a passion for both audio and video, marrying narrative and cinema into a story sure to inspire. Outside of stitching together videos, you can find me playing the piano or enjoying the outdoors.

MY WHY: Passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. It is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, Passion is ambition that is materialized into action; to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. Seeing this energy come through people is something I am passionate about. Video allows me to capture passionate people’s stories and use them to inspire others to feed their own passions.

VP OF MISCELLANEOUS STUFF

EMILY BELZ

A LITTLE ABOUT ME: I have a passion for organizing, video, and editing. Everyday, I strive for quality communication among the team and with clients. When I’m not at the office or making sure shoots run smoothly, I spend my time with friends and family, catching up on Netflix shows or diving into a good book.

MY WHY: When I first saw a video camera on a family vacation to Disney World, I was curious and couldn’t stop asking “Can I see in there?” And from then on my love for video grew. Growing up, I was always taking videos of my friends (sometimes against their will) and soon found my passion for editing the videos I was creating.

DIRECTOR OF MAXIMIZATION

TARA NIGH

A LITTLE ABOUT ME: I’m an entrepreneur enthusiast, with a passion for growing businesses to their maximum potential. With a background in training and employee development I knows what it takes to ensure the client has an engaging and memorable experience during every interaction. In my free time, you’ll find me enjoying the outdoors, whether on a hike or playing sports,  or snuggled up on the couch with my bulldog, Kingston.

MY WHY: As an extra in many of my brother’s films growing up, I became familiar with video early in life. And the creativity I saw in those videos carried on to many other areas of my life. I was always looking to make things better, funnier or more interesting in any way I could. And now I get to do it for a living!

NARRATIVE DIRECTOR

ANNE KROHN

A LITTLE ABOUT ME: I am a narrative creator who loves to communicate visually through video and animation. I bring a positive energy and work hard to ensure all client needs are met. If I’m not writing or shooting videos, I’m either spending time with friends and family or devouring chocolate ice cream.

MY WHY: I have this habit of creating various character’s and stories that I constantly play out in my head. I love to visualize these characters emotions and movements. I’ve been doing this my whole life so I fell in love with video and film because it’s visual story telling.

CREATIVE CONNOISSEUR

MARIA NIGH

A LITTLE ABOUT ME: I’m a creative mind that specializes in graphic design, strategic marketing, and dynamic storytelling. My ten years (+) of marketing experience coupled with project management skills, aid in providing clients with innovative and powerful videos that accomplish marketing goals. When I’m not developing the next creative way to help businesses grow, I love spending time with my husband (Zach) and two children (Goldie & Zander), playing sports, and enjoying a good TV series.

MY WHY: I’ve been blessed with talents and skills in both creativity and analytical tasks (though I definitely consider myself more right brain than left, probably a 70/30 split). I knew early on that I wanted to go into a field like marketing where there’s a great match of being creative (not only in visuals, but strategy), and being analytical, tracking results, adjusting methods based on numbers and business goals and taks and so on.

THE GCF STORY & CULTURE

WHY THE NAME 'GREEN CLOCK FILMS'

Funny you should ask (we get this question a lot)... our name comes from our belief and purpose.

Green = Money
Clock = Time
Films = Films or video

Because we're more than just creatives, we understand that for businesses 'TIME IS MONEY' and we believe that a great video should help achieve goals and SHOULD NOT take 6 months and $50K to produce. We're creative, efficient and strategic, and that's how we're able to help businesses see success without going in the red or dedicating too much valuable time.

OUR STORY

Believe it or not Green Clock Films started out of someone's basement (sounds like the beginning of every good business story huh?), Zach Nigh and Justin Yapp founded the company in 2012, I know we look young for our age. Our first paying video client was a wedding (again, sounds like you've heard this before?) and from there... we grew and grew and grew (like a kid eating his milk and wheaties) and now we're like that cool adolescent teenager, discovering ourselves, realizing our unique skills and abilities and ready to take on the world!
