In the movie, Field of Dreams, Kevin Costner’s character Ray Kinsella, an inexperienced farmer, hears a whisper, “If you build it, he will come”, and has a vision of a baseball diamond in the middle of an Iowa corn field. We know how the story ends, but Ray didn’t. Ray went with his gut and invested in something that no one could see or believed would pay off.
When Ray plowed up his corn field he put into practice 4 lessons that enabled him to realize his vision.
- Innovation – No one else was plowing up their corn field to build a baseball field. He was leading the pack – which takes courage and purpose.
- Value – He saw the value in what could be and built a beautiful field to rival all others. It was in a corn field, so he would have been justified with a few mounds of dirt.
- Relationships – His vision brought others together and changed his community.
- Heart – His vision gave him purpose and assurance that what he was doing was important.
Ray had a vision of what could be. And in spite of the obstacles he faced – doubt, fear, financial ruin & humiliation, he saw his vision through.
22 years ago we had a vision, one that would shape people’s lives, one that continues to impact others. And much like Ray we have tilled the soil of…
…by looking at our clients problems and working together to develop solutions. Solutions that benefit both our clients and their customers.
…by offering the kind of value built on quality, reputation and experience. There will always be cheaper ways of doing business, but that’s not who we are or what we’re about.
…by committing to the long haul. This is about more than a field to us, we’re not here to grow more video – there’s lots of that. We’re here to help our clients harvest stories with vision and purpose. We care about our clients and their organizations and listen to what they need – investing accordingly.
…by believing in the stories we share and the organizations for which we work. More than lip service, if we don’t believe in an organization, we won’t work with them.
Our leap of faith didn’t involve plowing up a corn field, but it was building something before anyone knew they needed it. Comprehensive Media has something incredible to offer. Something unique and of great benefit – the ability to share a story, your story. And that is something that CAN change the world.
We know there are lots of video production choices our there but we believe it takes more than a camera and software to be a great. It takes vision – the ability to see what can be and like Ray Kinsella, build it so that others can come and reap the benefits. We have built it so you could come experience it.
When you’re ready we’re here. We’ve been ready for 22 years.
