Brandon Roaten, Video Production

BRANDON ROATEN is the co-founder of MVP STUDIOS based in Nashville, TN and a second location opening in Sacramento, CA summer 2016. His passion for film began over thirty-three years ago in Memphis, TN where he performed in front of the camera for local promotions on NBC affiliate WMC-TV.  It was several years later that he decided to return to school and directing his passion for the camera to use behind the lens.  Roaten’s journey in film production has been an interesting one.

In 2011, he produced a commercial spot in a national video contest for country star Keith Urban’s new cologne fragrance “PHOENIX”.   His entry was chosen by editors as a TOP TEN commercial finalist and he donated the prize package to Make-A-Wish of Middle Tennessee, catching the attention of a local Nashville news station who covered his act of “Paying it Forward” during a Thanksgiving newscast.   That act of kindness propelled MVP Studios into becoming one of the sought after video production houses.   MVP Studios is not only known for their high quality productions, but capturing the hearts of audiences with their unique story-telling ability.   Their pure creativity coupled with the use of the latest technology allows MVP Studios to be a leader within the industry.

Today, MVP Studios serves television production companies, public relations firms, celebrity clients from NFL stars to music stars, healthcare, Forbes 500 and internationally recognized charitable organizations.  MVP works with high profile clients that have allowed him to expand his horizon’s both personally and professionally, which has been extremely rewarding.
