Great stories drive action.


HardPin is a multimedia production company founded on the heels of President Obama’s 2012 re-election. Our founding members traveled alongside the president to create inspiring stories of supporters, capture Obama’s backstage moments, cast record-breaking live streams, and help reinforce the narrative of the re-election campaign.

While on the road, we discovered our passion for the use of storytelling to drive home a message. And we saw firsthand how that message, when delivered with empathy and finesse, resonated with so many viewers and inspired them to act.  

Since then, HardPin has translated the lessons learned from an inspiring presidential campaign to the world outside of politics.


Hardpin is a new kind of production partner.

Timelines are shorter, budgets are tighter and the demand for quality and execution are the same.

We know that successful messages depend on speed, quality and finesse.  We capture and communicate the essential stories of your organization on time and on budget.
