Paladin Media Group is central Virginia’s premiere production company. We create beautifully powerful video for clients scattered from Charlottesville to San Francisco, from New Mexico to Minnesota. You may have an idea bouncing around in your head, or perhaps only half of an idea scratched out on a napkin. Paladin Media Group will bring those ideas to life. We give them legs, we prop them up, we wrap those ideas in video, and we help them fly. That's what we do, day after day, client after satisfied client.

Paladin Media Group is not a giant corporation, but we do great work for some giant companies. We are a modest, local, family-owned business and we call beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia our home. Paladin was founded in 1991 so we're not newcomers to the video world. We've survived several company moves, many video format and industry changes, as well as a little speed bump known as the Great Recession. We at Paladin are positioned today to help you and your business solve problems through video. We look forward to earning your trust.

Contact us today!

In addition to our creative video production services we also have a motion picture and documentary unit called Paladin Pictures.  We are also a strategic partner with the Community Films Foundation (501c3), with whom we work to help filmmakers and mission/humanitarian organizations better tell their stories!

BACKSTORY

In the 8th century, King Charlemagne created the Paladin Knighthood, warriors of sterling character who pledged to uphold the virtues of their culture.

Today, we at the Paladin Media Group strive to accomplish a similar goal, whether creating corporate video, television and radio broadcasts or feature motion pictures we strive for the utmost in excellence and integrity.

We are Paladin Media Group.

MISSION

Paladin Media Group is committed to the creation, production, distribution, and promotion of redemptive entertainment and educational media.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – February 15, 2012 - Paladin Media Group and Educational Media Consulting are pleased to announce the

launch of an exciting new series for Discovery Education to be produced and filmed here in Charlottesville.
Jerry and Maya Drake of Educational Media Consulting have partnered with Paladin Media Group to create a series of one hundred episodes for the Discovery Education High School Science “Tech Book.” These three to five minute online films will focus on high school science, specifically Physics, Biology, Chemistry, and Earth/Space Science. A team of area high school science teachers brainstormed with the producers on the best approach to teaching good science to high school students through video.

These teachers include Tony Borash, Diane Clark, Jamie Hedman, Jeff Prillaman, Frances Racette, and Mary Saville.
Paladin Media Group has reached out to the University of Virginia for experts in the various science fields to use as on-screen talent. Through Sherri Winston at the UVA Television News Office, Paladin worked with Louis Bloomfield, Professor and Associate Chair of Physics at the University of Virginia, who starred in the pilot episode. The pilot has been enthusiastically received and

Discovery Education has given the greenlight to begin production on the series.
Over 20 local individuals have been brought on to assist with this project including producers, editors, crew, and support staff.

Production will begin with 26 episodes of Biology featuring UVA Professors Douglas Taylor, Edmund “Butch” Brodie, and Assistant Professor Sarah Kucenas.

Paladin and Educational Media Consulting look forward to working with so many experienced and gifted educators through the course of this project with Discovery Education. Production of the series should continue through August 2012.
