Hi! My name is Brandon Keenan and I am the owner and operator of KVT Productions. I have been in business now for over 8 years and have been enjoying the field of Videography since I was 10 years old. I have my mother, Brenda, to thank for my video career as she was the one who purchased a VHS-C camera back when I was in 6th grade and I can say I was glued to it up until I graduated high school.
I attended Penn-Trafford High School from 1998-2001 where I was able to study Video Technology under Mr. Daniel Frescura and graduate with an ambition for a life long career in video. During that time I learned everything I could about videography using Audio/Video mixers, VHS camcorders and finally, took my first step into the world of digital video. I used the latest technology at that time filming on DVC film and on a Sony camera that was the first of its kind. I filmed every sport we had from football to soccer to track & field to basketball. I edited highlight videos for my Ice Hockey team, whom I played goalie for four years, as well as our football program and I’m proud to say I showed my first Highlight video presentation when I was only 15 years old and started filming several weddings to just get my feet wet. I made a nice transition from high school as I decided to contact the University of Pittsburgh’s football program where I volunteered during the 2000-2001 season under Head Coach Walt Harris and video coordinator Mitch Wilkens.
As I ventured further into film I found my nitch with the University of Pittsburgh where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Media Communications. I moved from volunteering for the Football program in high school to becoming a student Video Coordinator for the team working under head video coordinator Chad Bogard and head coaches Walt Harris and Dave Weinstedt from the Summer of 2001 through the Fall of 2005. It was an amazing experience that truly showed me how to film football with a coach’s eye as well as learn how to make highlight videos for the team’s pre-game preparation. I learned to use the Avid, Pinnacle, and DVSport video editing software’s on a computer network that placed computers in every room for every coach from the head coach to the graduate assistants. I traveled every where from Notre Dame to Southern Florida and was given the opportunity to travel with the team and work several bowl games such as the Fiesta Bowl in Scottsdale, Arizona and the Continental Tire Bowl in Charlotte, North Carolina. I worked as a freelance Videographer for several companies filming weddings during the Spring and Summers of those years and it let me broaden the horizon for what I would one day want to do. I have filmed more practices, games, and weddings then I honestly can count but it was worth every second as it has taught me everything I needed to know to successfully run my company, KVT Productions.
Once I graduated I knew I had to stay with Video. It had given me so many opportunities that I just knew there was one big one left. Opening a business is no easy task, however, with a rough job market out there in 2006 I decided it was in my best interest to take the plunge. For the last 10 years I have been working hard to build a successful client base filming weddings, sports games, depositions, and commercials and can say the editing side of things has been a very smooth, fun, and successful work field. I have learned to use Pinnacle and Adobe pro editing suites and currently use iMac computers for the majority of the editing. It is my goal to continue to grow this company by working with past, present, and future clients and allowing you to use this website as a source for what I have done, what I currently am doing, and what I can do for you in the future. I will be updating this site weekly with new personal sports highlight videos, Re-Caps of wedding days for current brides and grooms, as well as blogs that will detail specific vendors. I want to thank you for taking the time to read my statement and please feel free to browse my site. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email me at email@example.com or call me at 724-787-4163. Thank you again and best wishes in the future.
