I’m Henry Schneider, the proud owner of Open Window Productions.

I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.

While working as a commercial producer for a local television station, I found that the account representatives were not always looking out for the best interest of the client. Sadly, they were more focused on making a quick buck.

I felt that local companies deserved better treatment than what they were receiving, so I started to formulate a new business model for the video production industry, and put much thought into developing a unique plan.

After completing my blueprint, which was referred to as the Creative Content Program, I discovered that non-profit organizations also needed breath-taking video solutions. Subsequently, I fine-tuned my approach by creating affordable and effective content solutions for small firms as well as non-profits.

Over the last seven years, I have worked with some fantastic non-profits that are changing the world, and it’s incredibly fulfilling to be a part of the process. I love my clients, as their projects are always fresh and challenge me to conceptualize content that makes a positive impact.

I have evolved by helping clients achieve excellence, and when they win, I win. I began my business as a freelance gig, making videos on nights and weekends outside of my day job. Eventually, the demand picked up, and my side hustle turned into a full-time operation.

I have now grown to a stage where I was able to add my first full-time employee this year. Despite expanding gradually, the one thing that has remained constant is my desire to make impactful video content that assists clients in accomplishing their goals. 

My philosophy is to listen carefully to clients and translate their ideas into effective video content that exceeds expectations every time. There are many occasions where I have attended events, and my content is playing in the background. It’s rewarding to witness audiences captivated by my videos to such an extent that they are persuaded to take action.

When I am not producing videos, I love being outdoors and spending time with my wife and two young kids. I’m also extremely passionate about protecting the environment. The Boundary Waters Canoe area has faced severe environmental threats, and so I do my best to preserve it for future generations.

I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
