Across scripting, producing, shooting, editing, and mastering, the team at TOP excels at every step of creating compelling video work.

Without an audience, there is no story to tell. With this in mind, we often backward engineer our projects to ensure the message we’re telling ladders back to the audience in mind. Our distribution team across media planning, buying, digital placement, and viral marketers know how to get your video seen.

We locate and speak to an audience

There's an audience for everything. Where Chiefs fans would connect with a heartwarming sports-centric story, there's a barbecue fan excited to learn about the next breakthrough on the food scene in KCMO. Whoever your audience may be, we find where they're at and determine the right story for them.

We weave compelling narratives

Kansas City has contributed so much to local, regional, and national culture. From that, stories of triumph and emotion have can be derived. We know from experience that stories are powerful vehicles that encourage action, so we create content that engages the viewer and ultimately drives conversion.

We ensure your video is seen

We leverage our extensive network of Kansas City-based influencers and journalists at KCTV, WDAF, KSHB, and beyond to create broad distribution, while we internally optimize your video for SEO to help it reach organic audience via social media.

We drive brand exposure

When we understand your audience, those based in KC and abroad, we understand the white space for your brand and determine messaging that can amplify your positioning.

Kansas City born-and-bred creativity

We love our Kansas City video clients

At the crossroads of culture, technology, and history, you’ll find KC. One of the most unique cities in the world, the only thing more plentiful than fountains are world-class companies, both in the city center and in neighboring areas of Overland Park, Summit, Shawnee, Lawrence, and Topeka. That’s a lot of noise all fighting for the same share in voice, so it requires something different to stand out. TOP helps create custom content to ensure scalability and visibility.

The way to break through the noise of others in the industry doesn’t come from cookie-cutter video creations. Because each business is unique and because our roots are based in brand strategy, we know how to leverage your company’s unique opportunities and offerings to create custom content. We know what works and what doesn’t thanks to years of experience.

Another exciting offering we have available to our customers comes in the form of “stackable content”. What does that mean, exactly? By taking your initial piece of content and breaking it into multiple, optimized formats for use across a range of channels and platforms, we can efficiently and effectively scale your content strategy. Video can then be involved in your larger marketing efforts rather than a one-off event.

Why hire a Kansas City video production company?

Beyond knowing the ins-and-outs of the necessary creative and technical details required to connect your videos with your local and global markets, we hire local talent who know KC better than anyone to source the best places, times, and subjects to shoot.
