Video4Good is a full-service video production company based in Holyoke, Massachusetts. We pride ourselves on being creative, professional, reliable and fun. Here’s our team:
Gretchen Siegchrist – Co-founder & Creative Director
Gretchen has been making web videos since before YouTube existed, and has been at the helm of V4G since it launched in 2010. With a B.A. from New York University and a Master’s in documentary video production, Gretchen’s first major project, a documentary called “The Barber Farm”, was screened and won awards at film festivals in Canada and the US. The film led directly to the permanent conservation of the eponymous farm, convincing Gretchen of the power of media to make a positive impact.
Gretchen takes a calm and creative approach to every production. She has been a video producer for About.com since 2006, and produced the CSR Minute, a daily news show, from 2009 – 2013. As a founding member of the Northampton Area Young Professionals and a recipient of the Business West 40 Under 40 award, Gretchen is committed to engaging with the community and creating positive change through her work. When not producing videos, Gretchen enjoys cooking, Kundalini yoga, and spending time with her family.
Ben Kurtzman – Co-founder & Executive Producer
Ben has been producing videos for Video4Good since it was founded in 2010. You’ll also find Ben working at odd hours on all the little things that keep V4G operating. From working with clients, to editing videos to taking out the recycling, Ben does it all.
Ben’s interest in conservation, sustainability and planning is reflected in his Video4Good work. Outside of work he enjoys hiking, ice cream and the Red Sox.
