About Us

Hi, I'm Travis, thanks for stopping by. I've got a beard and a camera and my passion is creating documentary style short films for commercial brands. Originally from the California Bay Area, I studied Film and Video at Washington State University where I developed a fondness for the Pacific Northwest and its beautiful landscapes and amazing food. I settled down in Portland, Oregon where I live with my wife and two young sons. As a family we enjoy hiking, kayaking and traveling throughout the area.

I founded my studio Shields Films 16 years ago and am really grateful to be able to spend my days doing what I love most while at the same time helping businesses in my community grow and thrive. I’ve been fortunate enough to win 5 Telly Awards in the last few years so I’m pretty proud of my work.

Over the past 7 years I've produced seven multimillion-dollar video campaigns for top internet marketer, Brendon Burchard. In 2014 I launched my own online video training course, Shoot Videos That Sell, to educate entrepreneurs on shooting professional videos for their brand. In 2015 I founded Launch Video Lab in Portland Oregon where we handle the filming and editing of online course funnel videos and have helped launched multiple successful online marketing videos for the industries top thought leaders.

I've assembled an amazing crew of talented cinematographers, sound recordists and PA's to cover any size project, so we can scale to fit your budget and vision. I currently film with Blackmagic Design Ursa Mini 4.6K cameras for the best in 4K video quality.

I look forward to working with you on your next project!

Let's start creating. – Travis Shields
