Ken Calcaterra – Visual Storyteller

Leadership, teamwork and collaboration are as important as vision and creativity.  I view the director as a shepherd, responsible for creating an environment in which the team can spread their wings and fly, nurturing them while simultaneously pushing them to bring out their best.  When a talented group of people put their hearts and a little bit of soul into something, magic happens.

Visual stories are a powerful way to reach an audience with a message that educates and stimulates emotion.  The combination of images, audio, and music empower the written and spoken word.  Audiences are more likely to retain a message they are both hearing and seeing.

Testimonials

Ken as always can’t take just a few photos. If he’s going to do what he does best he’ll take as many as he has to to tell the story of that moment. The photo was my son and I together for the first time in this world. I took a moment and started to cry. The moment was captured through Ken’s understanding of the bigger picture of life. That picture is the story by which we all live. That moment for me stopped the hectic world for that moment.

Riccardo Hayes

Ken did an excellent job of creating and producing a top-flight commercial to promote the Cardinals’ 2012 yearbook, which is now sold out.

Gabriel Kiley

I hired Ken Calcaterra and Visual Story Group, LLC to document the Grand Opening of Digital Realty’s Data Center at 210 N Tucker in September of 2012. Simply put…Ken delivered!

Patrick Murphy

“Ken has been an amazing filmmaker to work with and learn from these past two years. During that short time we’ve put together a sizzle reel and first episode of an original series, It’s a Hard Rock Life, as well as produced a Mid-America Emmy-winning documentary, Pedaling to Stop Pushing. For someone like me just getting started in the industry, working with Ken has been an invaluable experience.”
