Skagit County- A beautiful place to call home

Skagit County: a beautiful place, full of diversity, and set in some of the Northwest’s most pristine land. It’s the perfect setting for a story. Whether it’s a true account about the life saving work of Overlake Hospital or a fictitious narrative demonstrating the versatility of Mackie loud speakers in a zombie apocalypse, at Hand Crank Films we find your story and capture it in a way that will captivate your audience.

But how does telling stories help you? Done correctly, each story can drive tremendous results. Take a look at some of the stories we’ve told and see how they helped meet and even surpass some large goals:

The following is a piece we filmed for CAIR as part of their PR push to initiate a dialogue of tolerance on the anniversary of 9/11. It was featured on MSNBC, FOX, CNN, the front page of Yahoo, and generated well over 1 MILLION impressions in 48 hours.



Saturna Capital used this 30 second TV commercial as part of their integrated marketing campaign focused on the launching of a new investment endeavor. It helped to increase investor sign-up by over 50 PERCENT.

This project succeeded in spades, resulting in more new orders than any product to date.

The following is a piece shot in association with the City of Tacoma and Pierce County used as a marketing piece to draw tourism and highlight some of the area’s appealing features.
