Drew Morey Productions specializes in helping your business or agency look good. We create customized branding tools that empower you to generate positive first impressions. We also create that distinctive, striking ‘look’ that presents you as solid, credible and effective.
Your Key Messages
You have a unique story to tell the world, and our job is to help you tell it in the most creative and engaging way possible. Working with you as part of our development team, we craft the style and content of your video until it resonates with your core values.
The more you know about the exact approach you are planning to take with your promotional or marketing campaign, the more specifically we can gear your production to serve your needs. If you’re not sure exactly what it is you do need, we are well qualified to help steer you in the right direction. We have decades of successful experience delivering valuable media assets to our clients.
Who We Are
Drew Morey Productions was established in 1999 by Drew Morey, graduate of the Media Arts program at Sheridan College. We have worked across Canada and in six countries, including three assignments in Africa. We specialize in telling the human story behind every business and organization, including educational, humanitarian and social service agencies, and the healthcare sector.
Our typical methodology is to work with a small crew, employing a bug-on-the-wall approach to documenting people in their natural habitat. This results in a more believable and compelling end product, and it maintains a more budget friendly production model. Our production strategy is equally effective in promoting businesses, especially service oriented ones.
We are well connected with a talented network of professional industry suppliers, and we own or have access to all the leading edge industry tools. We are known for being flexible, approachable, team oriented and genuine servants of our clients. We look forward to speaking with you about how we can add some creative muscle and emotional impact to your next marketing or promotional campaign. Please drop us a line using the contact form below.
Who I Am
I’ve discovered that the human side of every story is the part that other humans relate to the best. Whether I’m producing videos for accounting firms or hospitals, I find it to be the same, time and time again.
Back when I was a kid in film school, I wanted to use motion picture stories to make a meaningful impact on people. I wanted the viewer to take away something of value that would make their life better in some lasting way.
That motivation has never left me, and it still drives my sense of purpose as I tell brand stories for stakeholders in businesses, social agencies and the healthcare sector. It’s also the reason why I enjoy producing tribute stories that celebrate the lives of people’s heroes, whether they are community leaders or beloved grandparents.
I’ve enjoyed the business model that I set up in 1999 which allows me to focus on what I do best. I’m an independent freelance producer / director of videos for clients in a wide range of sectors. I enjoy the support of a strong network of industry colleagues and suppliers who take on key roles in bigger projects, such as providing high end motion graphics, operating a second and third camera, or recording location audio.
I’ve enjoyed being part of the Orangeville community since the early 90’s, growing both my business and my family here. It’s been a particular pleasure to have been part of community events like Orangeville 150, for which my company was honoured to produce the outdoor video screening event.
My greatest accomplishment (well behind the honour of being a husband, father and grandfather) is receiving words of affirmation from some of my clients and friends about the work I’ve been able to complete during my 40+ year career.
I also have the satisfaction of knowing that I’ve never yet taken on a job that my heart and soul wasn’t fully invested in. And even though I make a living promoting the interests of other people, I don’t enjoy promoting my own, so if you are potentially interested in me as a video industry professional, I would ask you to take the time to look at my work, which will hopefully speak for itself.
What our clients say about us
I had the pleasure of working with Drew on our recent gala event for Headwaters Health Care Foundation. Drew was extremely organized and put a lot of thought and care into how our content would be presented. We featured two patient stories in the form of videos and they quite simply blew me away. The impact of these videos on our guests and donors was significant as well, which helped to not only meet but exceed our fundraising goal. Drew was truly wonderful to work with and I look forward to using his services in the future for our next gala event. Thank you Drew!
Christine Patterson, Coordinator, Special Events & Community Engagement, Headwaters Health Care Foundation
Drew Morey has a passion and a skill for capturing the spirit of companies and organizations. In order to celebrate a particularly noteworthy milestone in our history, we knew that we wanted to go beyond canned and clinical representations of ‘what we do’ and ‘who we are’. We needed our history to come to life in a video that would be compelling to a very diverse audience. We wanted to capture the heartbeat of our people, and Drew was instantly drawn to partnering with us to help make that happen. I was particularly impressed with Drew’s sensitivity for wanting to ‘get it right’ and to be relentless about caring about every detail. Never afraid to introduce creative thoughts and elements, Drew is a very personable videographer with whom one can partner and work closely to find and create a vivid story that will live forever.

Michelle Andrews, Marketing Consultant for The Data Cable Co. Inc.
BDO Canada worked with Drew recently on creating a video of the grand re-opening of our Orangeville office. Drew made the entire experience exceptional. He was extremely knowledgeable, provided excellent advice to us throughout the entire process, and was totally professional. We were ecstatic with the final video he produced! I would happily recommend Drew's services to anyone who asked. I look forward to working with Drew again in the future.
Robin Dube, National Senior Marketing Manager, BDO Canada
Through Headwaters Health Care Foundation, I have been working with Drew for a number of years now and he has proven to be a creative, thoughtful, and flexible professional, with the ability to go far beyond simply capturing footage, but rather piecing together intricate stories that provoke, inspire and engage audiences. Drew ... lends his experience and talents to any and all ideas provided to create a finished product far beyond what I could ever envision myself. Headwaters Health Care Centre and Foundation need only the best partners to help share our message and stories and Drew is certainly at the top of the list! I would highly recommend him to any individual or organization looking to communicate your stories through video media.
Nicole Hand, Annual Giving Manager, Headwaters Health Care Foundation
Drew was fantastic to work with and we were thrilled with the final product. We initially presented Drew with a very expensive video production that we wanted to emulate and gave him a modest budget to work with. He captured the soul and humanity of our hospital, our patients and our staff and truly brought Headwaters Health Care Centre alive on screen. The video beautifully tells the story of our hospital, and was greatly enhanced by the music Drew suggested. The final product was beyond our expectations.
Catherine Matzig, Campaign Manager, Headwaters Health Care Foundation.
It has been fantastic working with you and ALL of your team! It was definitely a neat experience and we felt like we learned a lot about an industry we have never had much experience with! Even though the filming took place during our busiest season we really appreciated your patience and flexibility throughout the entire process. We are thrilled with the execution and quality of the film and are blow away with your ability to take a vision--- pull all the pieces together and have it result in something better than we had even imagined. We can’t wait to work with you again down the road (We already have ideas haha).
Leah Brakke, Marketing Director, Whispering Pines Landscaping
As Mayor of the Town of Orangeville, it was important we find someone to build a video to celebrate our town’s 150th Anniversary. We landed on Drew Morey and it was the best decision as he exceeded all our expectations. He has an amazing talent and vision to make things come alive. Always open to suggestions, full of creative ideas and a terrific work ethic to boot makes Drew is simply the best.
Rob Adams, former Mayor of Orangeville
I began working with Drew thinking I knew what I wanted as a final product. He showed amazing vision and steered me gently and persistently to what he knew I needed and I couldn't be more pleased with the end result.
Pat Elliot, Manager, Placement Resources and Adoption, DCAFS
Aside from having a brilliant first name, I'm not sure I've met anyone who works as hard at their craft and yet remains open to direction as Drew Morey. Most people who are as good as he is think they already know it all. That kind of professional authenticity is rare!
