Husband and wife duo Thaad and Eden Sabolboro are taking over Detroit one b-roll and documentary at a time. Their independent, full video production company tells a captivating and unforgettable visual representation for any Detroiter with a story to tell. Using their talents to tell a narrative story or preserve a memory, Reel Clever Films brings intentional film production to the Motor City.
After taking the tremendous leap of leaving their full time careers, the team has been able to open up their platforms to work with Detroit’s non-profit organizations.
“We really found our footing in the startup/small business community and the community non-profits in Detroit…we wouldn’t be anywhere without them and we wouldn’t be doing the work if we didn’t know who our favorite kind of client was. If there’s any way to work with a startup or nonprofit- we do, since we feel the work is more sincere” says Eden.
Fully believing in the revitalization of Detroit, the duo have dedicated their time to working with local bloggers, such as LALA Trips (who hopes to bring inspiration the community while highlighting the city of Detroit) to working with trendy dining guides such as Eater (to feature local mom and pop shop, Shatila Bakery). The Reel Clever Films team manifests emotional output ensuring their content is engaging, sometimes mouthwatering, and attention-grabbing.
Thaad and Eden collaborate to bring visually stimulating material to the table. Thaad works directly with capturing moments of time and color, while Eden directs and produces to portray the desired spectrum of emotions. The pair work gracefully together as a powerhouse for video production and editing. To date, the Sabolboros have worked personally with companies such as VOX Media, Fusion TV, AV Club, and completed projects in alliance with Mclures Pickles and couples tying the knot. Check out their video below for snippets of their work in 2017.
