our story

Head First Studios is the dream of one man who grew up wanting to tell stories and change people’s lives. After nearly a decade of creating video and graphic resources for organizations and individuals part-time, Brett Hetherington stepped out boldly and made Head First Studios a full-time operation. Since going full-time Head First Studios has had the privilege of collaborating on projects ranging from creating event art and advertising, producing videos for a new startup and the Federal Reserve, crafting the identity for a sports team or two and even building the packaging for a new product line from the ground up. Head First Studios exists to help organizations and individuals embrace their identity, and our journey is only beginning.

I have found him to be really talented in his abilities to take my ideas in rough form and turn them into a top-notch website. Brett was also diligent in his work and careful to try to make my site what I wanted even if I could not communicate my desires directly. He was able to take rough ideas and turn them into a reality.

Our Process


before we even begin we take time to meet with you so we can understand your purpose and goals for your project. then we take time to research and plan out the best plan for success.


once the plan we put together is approved we assemble all the tools we need to make your dreams a reality. for video work this includes all necessary pre-production, for graphic design this entails drafting the initial proofs for approval.


once all footage has been captured, or proofs approved we then assemble your project into its final form, typically with one round of revisions.


after your project is completed we will schedule a time to review and evaluate the success of your project. we want you to love your project so much yo will brag to your friends about the job we did for you.


A lot of times it is easy to allow price to become a roadblock to telling our story. We let it stop the project before it gets off the ground. We choose to see numbers as a negative and we forget to look at those same numbers as representatives of the value of a project. It really is like a game where you think the lowest score is the best. Your story is important and it needs to be shared. Those numbers are an indicator of the value you receive for telling your story. We would like to encourage you to see numbers and dollar signs as a value to tell your story, numbers that provide you with talent and an end product that will engage the world with your story.

This is why head|first studios does not advertise hourly pricing. Some stories require more time, while some require less. Sometimes pre-production is simple, and other times it takes a lot of effort. In the end, each story is different and requires care in different areas. We want to give you the best value for your money, so we quote each job individually.
