2022 was the biggest year yet for GLBAL media! We’re so thankful for all of our clients and for trusting us with your websites, videos and live streaming needs.
This year we traveled to 35 different states on 55 flights for 122 live events. Working alongside our friends at ChildFund, World Vision and Children International we toured with bands like We The Kingdom, Michael W. Smith, Elevation Worship, Crowder, Matt Maher, Lauren Daigle and more.
We filmed, edited and produced 95 videos ranging from our work with Hey Westminster to Hall of Fame content for US Squash. We also provided concert photography and event coverage for Westminster’s SummerFest.
This year we continued our tradition of donating a percentage of our company profits to a nonprofit. This year’s recipient was LightsOut. Read more about them here.
We are looking forward to next year and would love to work together on your next project. We currently have 3 international trips planned and can’t wait to return to visit our friends in Africa and South America this coming year.
Justin Willet was recently interviewed for the Persevere Podcast where they discussed everything from playing in a rock band to founding a full service media company, being prepared for the unexpected and believing in yourself, and creating boundaries with honesty and transparency.
Video content is a continually increasing demand for the online and social media space. This is because:
“Viewers retain 95% of a message presented to them in the video as compared to 10% when reading text.” – Impact Plus
As this knowledge is becoming more widespread we are beginning to see the trickle-down effect take place. More and more nonprofits and companies are beginning to consistently implement video on their websites and in social media content. Ultimately, video content serves your visitors better because you’re making your content easily accessible and memorable.
Check out the 2022 video trends to watch for and incorporate into your nonprofit or company’s content.
Even though most viewers aren’t watching on devices capable of these resolutions people have been taught to ask for it when requesting video shoots.
As the use of video increases across all platforms creative lighting will play a bigger role in helping your videos stand out. RBG lighting will allow users to create unique-looking interviews and have full control over the scene they are shooting.
Interactive / VR video hasn’t fully caught on but as the technology continues to improve and become more widespread we can expect to see more and more VR videos.
Drone videography has become standard in most video productions however the quality of these shots and most importantly using them creatively will help set your production apart.
Live streaming is here to stay however with its increased popularity the cost for these services will start to decrease as it becomes easier for clients to produce the content on their own.
Stories will always drive good videos. Even as short-form videos become the norm across social media the content of the video is crucial to its success.
Moving into 2022 and beyond videos will need to be delivered in multiple formats for use in vertical stories, square formats, and standard 16×9.

The stats and projects listed below are the numbers that reflect what matters most to us, which are the nonprofits, businesses, ministries, and individuals we have had the honor of working with and helping.
Enjoy an overview of some of our projects and behind-the-scenes photos from this past year.
We work with companies to improve their SEO ratings by conducting search engine optimization and audits for their websites. We help their websites rank higher in Google by identifying keywords and phrases that potential clients will search be searching for.
This year we built websites for our friends at Third Culture Thriving, Hear It Clear, Soni Sunshine, and more. 2021 brought a renewed approach to our website design process which allowed us to build some of the best websites we’ve ever designed.
Most of the photos we took this year were either for Hey Westminster Grant Recipients or for concerts. With our new office location and now having access to an indoor studio at Together Studios, we look forward to expanding our studio sessions in the coming year.
36 Videos produced
We’ve completed video projects for all of the Hey Westminster grant recipients, Affordable Basement Solutions by JFJ & Sons, Finding Hope Counseling, multiple projects for Exponential, ChildFund, Faith Church Glen Burnie, and we announced the addition of drone video services. We are fortunate that you trust us to help tell your story.
This year saw the return of live events and we were happy to help support them. Traveling on numerous tours, video shoots, and client meetings we flew over 26 times.
29 states visited
Although this was the first year in over 5 years that did not include an international trip we still managed to cover most of the country visiting 29 states for photos, videos, and tour dates.
It has been a great year! Thank you to each of our clients for trusting us to build your websites, capture and tell your stories, and serve you creatively. We are looking forward to all the projects that we will be working on in 2022. We hope you enjoyed a behind-the-scenes GLBAL media year in review.
