Insight Visual Media, Inc.

Date Established: April 2010
Number of Employees: 6 and counting
Product/Service: Primarily a video production and photography studio, but also offers graphic design services for digital campaigns, product packaging, direct mail and website development.

Cooper Ross, president of Insight Visual Media, and his wife both graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma and were confident Edmond was the right place to raise a family and grow a business.

During its first four years of business, Insight Visual Media has worked with OKC Thunder, Cimarex Energy, Cactus Drilling, Edmond Electric, Advance Pierre and US Cellular. The company is currently building a new creative studio at 15th and Fretz. The studio will feature a full cyclorama sound stage with a green room, commercial kitchen and a state of the art post-production department that will strengthen the company's ability to meet and exceed the needs of clients.

Insight Visual Media's work can be found in many places, including Congressman James Lankford's office in Washington, D.C., where the company's award-winning photography is featured. The company also
produces a nationally televised youth hunting and outdoor adventure program called YoungWild. The show follows Lincoln Tapp, an Edmond resident, as he attempts to harvest all 29 big game animals in North America. In the first three months, the show has reached nearly 40,000 likes on its Facebook fan page and earned a "Best in Show" award from the National Wild Sheep Foundation.

Looking to the future, the company's goals are to grow and strengthen the agency and client relationships as well as continue to improve the ability to enrich advertising campaigns with top-level visual media.
