ABOUT US


who we are

At the Pocket Media Group we believe in story. It’s in our DNA. Whether it’s a photograph, a video, a design or three words in a tag-line, stories deliver. They communicate. They connect. And that’s the point, right? To have your message heard. Let’s talk.

Educated at Vanderbilt University and the American Film Institute, Creative Director / Founder Doug Sadler is an award-winning independent filmmaker, alumnae of the Sundance Institute’s Feature Filmmaking program and guest filmmaker at Johns Hopkins / MICA MFA Film program, where he teaches directing and narrative film. He specializes in understanding the story and goals behind a mission and crafting creative ways to communicate the complex.

SERVICES


what we do.

Branding • Strategy • Video • Photography • Design • Writing • Animation

It’s simple. You have a story – a project, a message, a mission. Maybe you know exactly what it is and exactly what you want to say. Or maybe it’s hidden under piles of to-do lists. Whatever the case, we help you see it and tell it so it connects. We listen, we ask questions, we share ideas, we refine what you want to say and who you want to reach. And then we deliver, with boldness and creativity. Whatever the medium, whatever the audience, we connect you to the people you most want to reach.
