Good Ideas Rise To The Top

Howdy! I’m DeAndré.

Wanna know a secret?

You are special. Your business is special. What you have to offer the world is special.

There is no one else out there that offers quite what you do. And that’s awesome. The problem is, how do we get the world to know that?

We start by identifying and understanding your story. Then we figure out the best way to tell that story, whether it’s through video, digital marketing campaigns or brand development.

At The Helium Factory, we believe that the best idea isn’t always the most obvious one.  In that respect, the best ideas usually float to the top (see what we did there?) and the rest are banished to faraway lands. Like Oklahoma.

Everybody has a story to tell. Let’s tell yours the best dang way possible.

I loved the quality of the video. A lot of people that see it thought it was on Food Network!

People Are Talking Behind Our Backs

Yasmeen Tadia

You and your team exceeded our expectations. We LOVE how you took a cool and trendy spin on our crazy idea of Fluffpop. I send the video to almost every press request that we get for video collateral. I felt like you believed in my brand and that made me more comfortable to by myself and share with you more about who I am and what my brand is about.

 I was always kept in the loop to the status of the production and it was very legit and very professionally done. I loved the quality of the video. It was just as good as anything you would see on national TV. A lot of people that see it thought it was on Food Network! Get this guy. He is personable, professional and does incredible videos. You will never regret it.

My biggest fear was that I might have a different artistic vision, or that an important moment might be missed in the film. Instead, the Helium Factory videos showcase even more than I remember, in a vividly beautiful way, and even basic moments seem magical! The artistic flair of each video, especially in regards to the synchronization of images with music, made the quality soar high above my expectations: They created films from my wedding that are deeply moving and breathtaking masterpieces.

July, XO

A short film about friendship, summer, and America.

Lauren + Kyle | Wedding Ceremony

It was such an honor to film Lauren & Kyle’s wedding! We flew to Cancun in late July to celebrate their union at the El Dorado Royale resort. The weather was perfect, the music was glorious and the beer was Mexican.

Be sure to check out our other featurettes of the wedding – Lauren’s makeup prep, an extended video of the reception, a Trash The Dress and a video featuring a donkey. Yes, a donkey!

Lauren + Kyle | Reception

After their gorgeous wedding ceremony, it was time to get down with the newly crowned Mr. and Mrs. Kyle Young! This extended video gives a peek into the reception, which took place at El Dorado Royale in Cancun, Mexico. This video has everything: a bubble machine, sombreros, and of course, The Wobble.

All Roads Lead Home | Richardson/Dixon 2014 Family Reunion

This August, four generations of family came together to celebrate one another in Texarkana, Texas.In this video you’ll find: Pop locking, food, line dancing and lots of love!

Lauren + Kyle | Blush

The bridal prep before the wedding is always a special time. Mothers, sisters and future in-laws all come to the same room for one purpose – to make the bride look her best on her special day. This short feature follows the bride through getting her makeup done all the way to zipping up the gown. 

Lauren + Kyle | Trash The Dress

When I first floated the idea of a “Trash The Dress” to Lauren, we were mainly thinking about having the bride and groom jump into the ocean just past their wedding site. A good idea, but not nearly colorful enough for this cool couple. We devised a fun shoot using colored powder and an epic match between the bride and groom.

Oh, and if you’re wondering – the colored powder washed off of her dress almost 100%!
