Company Mission Statement: "To provide the best and most professional video products, friendliest interaction, and most personalized service to the people of North Carolina."
Naz'03 Productions is a small video-production company, serving the people of Raleigh, Garner, Cary, and Fuquay-Varina since July of 2003. I formed this company shortly after graduating from William G. Enloe High School in 2003, hoping to further my knowledge and experience in this field--perhaps in hopes of one day doing this for a living.
My name is Brandon Bridges, resident of Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina, and at the time this page was created (May 25, 2004), a sophomore at Campbell University, located in nearby Buies Creek, NC. I grew up in Raleigh, and then moved with my family to Fuquay in the summer of 2000. These beginnings have created a person that's easygoing and who tries to be funny in person.
How it all Began
I first got into video production my junior year of high school; I was looking for something to fill my schedule, and a friend of mine--one John Roberts--suggested I take the class. According to him, it seemed to fit me, because there were lots of notes involved (although he didn't say exactly how many; I now have a folder a half-inch thick that's filled with pages of notes from that class--my teacher, Curry Leslie, was exactly right when he said they'd come in handy even after graduation, because they have already, several times). About halfway through this class, I decided that it might be nice to make the graduating seniors a bit of a sendoff/goodbye video. It was the first time I ever used a professional-grade camera and the other tools associated with high school video production. Although this project, which I named "Project Senior" (or PSII for short), took time to put together and hit a few rough spots along the way, the end result was a smash hit with the Class of 2002. After that small taste, I was hooked.
The following year I followed suit with the second level of the course, during which time I took part in several projects and made many of my own. My reputation won me the honor and privelage of making the Senior Slideshow for the Class of 2003, of which I was a member. I was even more honored to be allowed to reprise my earlier work on "Project Senior" with a newer, longer version that would include testimony from the more visible members of our class (in case you're wondering, yes, I took part). I am very much looking forward to doing a Director's Cut DVD of this project. Like its earlier installment, this PSIV was a smash hit and I gave out literally dozens of copies to seniors wanting to hold on to the memory of that night.
After graduation, it seemed that the next logical step was to start doing this sort of thing for pay. In school, the work I had done earned me a passing grade in my TV Production class--but there was more out there. And so, about two weeks after the graduation ceremony, I decided that I'd need a name under which I could do all of the projects that would undoubtedly soon be coming my way. Less than a week later, the first project to ever be done under the Naz'03 name began. Of all things, it was a wedding video.

There's no limit to the things I will do. Besides creating a video to document a particular event, I've also done training videos and even built CGI sets for use in television. In addition, I can do announcing or voiceovers for your own projects or presentations. Typically, I like to have a month to work on something major (although in this business the more time you give me the better the final product will be). I usually like to do projects in 16:9 format, but of course it's ultimately up to the client. There are a variety of formats available, so you can choose between a DivX CD, VHS, or DVD as the medium for your copy of the final product. Please bear in mind that DivX CDs are $5, VHS's are $10, and DVD's are $15 per copy.
