Hi! I'm Pierre Louis Beranek

Here's some info about me to put a face to the company...

Pierre Louis started producing videos at the age of 15 when he became president of his high school's Movie Making Club, through which he spearheaded several projects such as the "Video Yearbook".  By university, he was fluent in 3 languages: English, French and Portuguese, which he learned during a one year exchange in Brazil.  In addition to his major in Film and Video, he also did a year of Italian and a year of Japanese at York University, Toronto.  A second one year student exchange in Mexico added Spanish to his languages.  Graduating with honours in 2002, he gained additional production experience doing camera work and floor directing for TV shows at Rogers Television.  In 2003, he filmed his first wedding, and shortly after, he created his production company, One World Productions, in tribute to his love of video production, travel, cultures and languages. 

Pierre Louis has provided his visual story-telling talents and creativity to clients across the Americas, producing videos in 8 different languages, spanning several industries including: events/weddings, real estate, tourism, dance, food, and vet clinics. 

Passionate about his work, Pierre Louis' goal is not only to meet, but exceed client expectations, by:

  • Providing outstanding, personable service in the client's own language

  • Under-promising and over-delivering

  • Delivering work on time (including same day edits) and within budget

  • Leaving each client with a smile

With over 2 decades of experience behind the lens, and fluency in a growing number of languages to better serve international clientele (currently learning German), Pierre Louis looks forward to the opportunity of bringing his expertise and passion to your business or event!
