Storyfarm New Media LLC was founded when John Sherman was looking for a primary care doctor, searched the Web, and found the information available insufficient.
All he found were web pages with dated still pictures and a few lines of text and no video. That led to the creation of video production company Storyfarm
. The company recently moved
from the Emerging Technolgy Center in Canton to a 1,500-square-foot office in Fells Point. It employs seven and will hire a video editor, cinematographer and office coordinator over the next few months.
Storyfarm’s philosophy is that every website is essentially its own TV station and the market for high quality content is unlimited.
The video production company’s clients include Exxon Mobil Corp., T. Rowe Price Group Inc., the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Sherman was a WBAL-TV reporter from 2002 to 2010. He and Storyfarm Creative Director Beau Kershaw have won numerous television journalism awards, including a Peabody Award, the DuPont-Columbia Award and a national Emmy for an investigative series about pollution in the Chesapeake Bay called “Dirty Secret.”
