Who are we?

a digital studio with ♡

Gumview Creative is a video production & design company based in San Diego, California.

We believe that people are hungry for authenticity – that they want to connect with something genuine. 

Thats why, before starting any project, we ask ourselves – how will this make people feel?

This sets us on the right path and informs all our creative decisions. From just the right musical note to that perfect cut, we find meaning in those details that makes our work whole.

WHO WE ARE

Meet the Team

NICK

CO-FOUNDER, FILMMAKER

Growing up in the coastal Redwoods of Northern California gave me an appreciation for nature and provided a constant scene of inspiration. I was the kid running around with a camera, creating films with friends while weaseling my way out of school book reports. These memories play a big part in the work I do today.

When I wasn’t running amok you could typically find me sitting in front of the tv watching Aliens on VHS for the gazillionth time.

Fun fact: Taking apart a VHS player won’t show you how movies are made!

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT

Some might say I’m the most important member of the team. My emotional satisfaction is the driving force in this company.

I possess a keen nose for treats aesthetics. More importantly, however, I am a constant reminder to go outside and enjoy the sunshine!

My interests include rolling in things at the dog park, ripping the stuffing out of my toys and long naps.

Super-Power: I can climb into bed every single night without anybody noticing.

KELI

CO-FOUNDER, CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Originally from South Africa, I’ve been living in San Diego since 2007.  With a background in illustration and animation, I bring a colorful sense of creativity and imagination to my work. I thrive on creating engaging experiences.  Drawing is a passion, and I recently illustrated my third children’s storybook.

My interests include frozen yogurt, inventing paleo recipes for my favorite treats, and reading.  I love going on adventures and exploring San Diego.

Claim to Fame: I worked as an Animator and Animation Director on South Africa’s very first locally-produced children’s TV series!

We have come up with an interesting option for those wanting great video for their website or social media feeds, yet can’t quite afford the upfront cost. Please consider this a test drive, we want to see…

Making videos with your iPhone : Part 1

Making videos with your iPhone : Part 1

It’s been said that the best camera is the one that’s with you. For most of us, that’s our smartphone. To capture those authentic moments, nothing is more ubiquitous than the iPhone, so let’s take advantage of its video capabilities!

Making videos with your iPhone : Part 2

Editing on your iPhone is quite different from using a serious post-production machine, but the same principles apply.

The power of empathy

The power of empathy

It doesn’t start with the product. It starts with a conversation. Getting to know those around you and understanding their feelings is incredibly valuable for both your business and personal relationships.
