CURRENT: After 5 Shift Visuals

About Shift Visuals
If you ask their mothers what they do, they’d say they make movies all day. Talk to their wives, and they’d say they giggle about cameras and lenses. It’s really much simpler (and manlier) than that: They get to turn people’s passions into beautiful and powerful works of art.

Shift Visuals is a full-service commercial photography and video production house located in downtown Green Bay. They love working with anyone who has a use for compelling visuals: brand managers, healthcare organizations, non-profits, city planners, manufacturers, etc.

They specialize in creative storytelling and brand building through visual media: video for web, television and internal marketing; and product, architectural, editorial and commercial portrait photography. They believe that the best results happen when you work closely, kindly and tirelessly while always aiming to be a part of something bigger than yourself.

About the Space
Their space has video roots, albeit adult video roots. The store was face-lifted in 2000 and was home to a firm of architects for over a decade. Shift Visuals took over the lease in April 2015. With its abundant natural light and urban-loft feel, it’s the perfect space to dream, create and share a beer. Shift Visuals is located above The Urban Frog in the downtown, On Broadway district.

Thursday, July 9; 5-8 p.m., Open House Format.
