About Kevin

My name is Kevin Balmer, aka Diggable Monkey. I've been in the freelance business of video production for the past nine years and I've witnessed the vast evolution of the media landscape. I've done mostly short story documentary with a tiny bit of commercial work. My brand is heavily weighted in the arts and design arena, with a bit of subscription-based online course development. The last couple of big doc projects I've completed were for the Oregon Historical Society, the Regional Arts and Culture Council, and the NW Blacksmiths Association. I've also done some storytelling video work with developers and architectural firms here in Portland. I can execute on all levels of the business from negotiating and securing the work, to the production and delivery of the end product. I would eventually like to lead a production team and make inspirational stories to help save the planet.
