What We Do

Story telling is really at the core of what we do. The shape and form or each story can be as diverse as the stories themselves. Whether it’s a 30 second television commercial or a 2 hour documentary, the approach and commitment is the same.

One Stop Solutions

It’s a changing media landscape out there with new formats and new ways to deliver content constantly evolving. Ocean State Video can guide you through the entire production process from proposal to delivery. It starts with a conversation about your vision and mission. We want to know as much as we can about you and your audience so we can craft a message that will build a bridge between all of the stakeholders.

Director of Photography

Jim Karpeichik is an Emmy award winning Director of Photography with over 35 years of experience around the globe.  Whether we are directing an entire project or serving as a crew for a single shoot, we believe it’s about more than just being technically correct. We pay special attention to the developing story and allow that to influence everything we shoot so as to seamlessly add a deeper demension to the production.

Post Production

Ocean State Video edits uncompressed video on a state of the art Final Cut Pro edit system.  Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, Motion and DVD Studio Pro round out our production suite.  Nonlinear editing enables changes on the fly as well as multiple versions of the project without extensive re-editing.  Tape formats include DVCProHD, Betacam SP, DVCPro, DVCAM and HDV. We deliver just about any file imaginable, DVDs, Blu-Ray and broadcast videotape as needed.


We love the diversity of all of what we do but some of our most meaningful projects are the documentaries we create for PBS. Our experience includes over a dozen films for the WWII Foundation, bringing veterans back to the battlefields that changed their lives, following a Holocaust survivor back to Auschwitz, documenting inspiring stories in Morocco and Egypt where simple innovations are improving lives. We also love the documentaries close to home that reveal our often overlooked history and tell stories before they are lost to time.

State of Rhode Island

Ocean State Video is a registered vendor and currently under contract with the State of Rhode Island with a Master Price Agreement in place. This streamlines the process for any state office or agency to work with us for their video production needs. We’ve been working with government agencies for many years. We understand that the process can sometimes be challenging and we are ready to help guide you through every step and meet your deadline.


We take a great deal of pride in the relationships we build with producers from around the world. We look forward to learning from the experience of others just as much as we enjoy sharing our own experience. If you’re doing a project for the first time, we can walk you through every step of the process and most importantly, get you to the finish line. That’s exactly what we did with the producers of “The Tent” and many others.
Everyone has a story to tell. Share yours with the world. Your audience is waiting. We’re ready to help.
