Leading the way in contemporary communication, media & film.
Perhaps you need a short training film for new employees or a descriptive video piece to bring your website to life. Maybe you've always wanted an inspirational film to motivate customers or donors into action but didn't quite know where to start. I look forward to helping you connect with your audience in a fun, efficient, and creative way.
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dave Proehl and I'm currently serving at Abundant Life Church in Happy Valley, OR as Pastor of Communications & Operations. In this capacity, I play a key roll in the crafting of the weekend services, creating much of the film media used and oversee the weekly television production for our webcast and Sandy campus.
I'm also the Owner/Creative Director of Trail Marker Media and 24:44 Films. I've written, produced and directed a number of short films currently in wide circulation on Sermonspice.com. One particular film, "The Hall Closet" has been picked up by over 1,500 churches internationally. I've also produced and directed two award winning films as part of the 48 Hour Film Project in Portland, OR. I own and shoot with a Panasonic DVX100B and edit with Adobe Premiere Pro.
My travels of late now categorize me as an "International" filmmaker. I've shot, directed and edited film for DELTA Ministries in Naples, Italy as well as in post-disaster Haiti and NE Japan. I believe I've brought to each of these projects a special sensitivity in working with people ravaged by disaster. Telling these stories effectively has been the most challenging, and satisfying work I've done in film. You can see the results of these efforts on the Video Samples page.
Contact me if you'd like to discuss how Trail Marker Media & 24:44 Films might partner with you on your next video or creative endeavor for your business, ministry or non-profit organization. I'm available on most Friday's (my day off from Abundant Life) for a free* consultation. I believe you'll find my rates are competitive, and if I take you on as a client, I'll turn around your project in a professional and timely manner. I can be reached via e-mail HERE or by phone at 503.901.9985.
I look forward to hearing from you.
