TODD FAMILY LEGACY
"The Todd family has been known for doing things their own way since the beginning. My grandfather started a business in Sedalia, Colorado, in 1945 after serving in World War II. My father started his own business in Littleton in the 90's, and I followed suite in 2010 with Vivid Imagery.
What we have always done differently is that we treat everyone like family. We are stubbornly loyal, extremely honest (even when WE make mistakes), and we're hard working. And we are passionate about showing that to the people we do business with."
- Jesse Todd (Founder of Vivid Imagery)
Jesse Todd grew up in a family full of entrepreneurs and risk takers. While the Todd family operated their own local Colorado business, Jesse developed a passion for video production that began in his teenage years. After being convinced by a high school teacher to take the video class, the first video he made won best music video at the Slick Rock Film Festival. Even in high school he was hired by multiple schools to produce commercial content. The film program at Valor Christian High School gave him opportunities to film around the world, and he continued his education at the Colorado Film School.
For many years he cultivated his passion for video while working full time at the family business. Often this included construction by day and video shoots by night. Over time he recognized that his heart was in video, so using the skills he had learned while working with his family, he set out on his own. With the combination of business management, marketing, and storytelling, Jesse offers a unique skill set that is rare in the video industry.
SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND OTHERS, AND THEN TO EMPOWER THEM
"My hope is that I can understand every business and client on a personal level; knowing their story, goals, and vision. Only then can I truly combine the medium of film and video production to help empower them to reach their fullest potential."
