They were professional while filming, helped put us at ease, and we were blown away with the final product. I know we will be able to use it to effectively introduce our company to many customers in the years to come.

Our Team

Jon Hollif

Director of Production

Jon Hollif is the video expert at Appeal Production.  Jon has been “the camera guy” ever since Andy Vanhook (teacher/mentor/friend) passed him the reins in 2007.  About 95% of the time, Jon is a one-man wrecking crew for shoots: handling the camera, audio, lighting, and directing the talent. The thing Jon likes most about his job is the new places he goes and the friendships he makes while he is out filming.  Outside of work, Jon enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter.

Beau Baker

Lead Editor, Designer, Artist

Beau Baker is Appeal’s post-production guru, with an eye on design. Some may say he’s a myth, you may never see or hear from Beau. He’s generally hiding in the shadows, grinding away on a computer, trying to bring beauty to the world of digital media. Think of him as the Wizard of Oz, behind the curtain, handing out vital organs and logo animations.

Andy Vanhook

Imaginative Producer

Andy Vanhook is the captain of inspiration at Appeal Production. Never short of energy, hair care products, or ideas, he understands how to use video to connect business to people. It is his job to collaborate with our clients and ensure their goals are being achieved. When not producing, Andy shmoozes, works the room, power-networks, and searches for a new shade of pink to add to his closet.

Bryn McIntyre

Creative Producer

Bryn McIntyre is our air traffic controller at Appeal Production. Booking a shoot? Curious about project status? She’s got the answer. Her job is to ensure your project meets your deadline and exceeds your expectations. It is quite a balancing act she does with grace and a smile. Bryn is thoughtful, detailed, and makes the journey of creating an appealing video fun.

Claire Brenneman

Editor, Designer, & Artist

Editor extraordinaire would perfectly describe Claire Brenneman. She paddles through footage seeking out the best shots to expertly craft your video story. Then her artistic skill takes over in designing animated graphics to enhance your video. Easy-going, detail oriented, artistic, and practical, with Claire at the helm, your video won’t go adrift.

Ryan Bonos

Videographer, Photographer, & Editor

We know what you’re thinking, ”is he related to the famous U2 singer”? Unfortunately, no. Ryan’s last name is pronounced ‘Bonus.’ He is our skillful utility player, jumping in where needed. Plus, if you want aerials, Ryan is our FAA Certified drone pilot. Whether he is writing creative scripts, framing beautiful shots, or carefully crafting the final video, he is a real ‘bonus’ to your project.
