Hi! I'm Pierre Louis Beranek
Here's some info about me to put a face to the company...
I AM A
Pierre Louis started producing videos at the age of 15 when he became president of his high school's Movie Making Club. 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 (and Latin dancing to his extracurricular skills, giving him the unique ability to film and photograph dance from a dancer's perspective). 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!
Pierre Louis did an amazing job of capturing what makes us so unique at The Kingbridge Conference Centre & Hotel. His talent of knowing how to draw in and emotionally connect an audience to tell a story is what sets him apart from any other Creative Director or production company I have worked with in the past. I highly recommend Pierre Louis.

Pierre Louis deepened his love of photography in 2012 when he started taking pictures of ballet graduates in Curitiba, Brazil. Since then he's applied his video directing skills and creative eye to the art of the static image, bringing smiles and joy to clients in both North and South America.
I did my ballet graduation pictures with Pierre Louis and they turned out incredible. He’s an excellent photographer!

I worked with Pierre Louis while developing my Excalibur extension for Premiere Pro. His knowledge of post production and Premiere Pro makes him an invaluable beta tester. He doesn’t just spots bugs and questionable UI decisions but comes up with great ideas on how to improve the overall product and make it greater. I love Pierre Louis’ UI mockups in which he clearly illustrates how his ideas would be beneficial to end users. His contributions are worth that of a dozen beta testers! I hope to continue working with him on future products that I plan to develop.
