A team dedicated to humanizing the men and women behind the badge.
In our day and age, it’s impossible for agencies not to have some kind of presence on social media, online, or in the news. We believe in using modern technology to help humanize the people behind the badge, creating relatable and authentic media content defined by curiosity, empathy, and care.
This is bigger than just nice images – we’re on a mission to reconnect law enforcement and the community.
We believe that the most effective leaders and teams start with a clear understanding of their “why” – a distinct mission. Our desire is to bridge the gap between law enforcement and the community using video and photography to humanize the people behind the badge.
With all of our projects, we always start at ground zero – what you want to accomplish. We custom build each project to make sure we can accomplish what you need, and infuse our expertise and creativity into making your mission successful.
We don’t believe in giving anything less than 100%. If we don’t think we can make a project great, we’ll turn it down rather than do a half-baked job. We go the extra mile to make sure that every client we serve gets the best that we can offer – removing the complexities and using our streamlined, proven process.
Andrew & Hannah Bartlett
Creative Director + Creative Producer
Andrew Bartlett heads up the creative team at Defender. Ever since doing backyard action films with his brothers, he’s loved creating projects with drive and energy. He’s passionate about discovering the unique needs of each client, and how to best tell their stories.
Lighting and composition are some of Andrew’s favorite aspects to experiment with, and you can often find him coming up with a new design, or whiteboarding his latest concept.
Hannah Bartlett runs the scheduling and communications side for Defender. She is also the lead editor for the team, and enjoys working in both the creative and logistics side.
Hannah loves building relationships, and she’s most likely the one you’ll be chatting with over email. She helps keep the company running smoothly, and when she’s not busy planning a new film shoot, she enjoys editing the latest podcast episode and being a sounding board for Andrew’s ideas.
