Purple Finch Productions

About Us

Exploring The World, Rooted In N.H.

The purple finch is a symbol of our company’s vision and values. It’s well-traveled across North America, like us, with a year-round presence on both coasts. As the official bird of New Hampshire, it is proud to call The 603 its true “home.” Its striking colors exhibit our marketing goals of vibrant uniqueness, and of course, its ability to fly symbolizes our expertise in drone video.

Purple Finch Productions was founded in New Hampshire in May of 2018 with the mission of providing quality, creative video production solutions at an affordable price to businesses and consumers. There is a significant need for our solutions as video has become an essential part of brand building for businesses. However, many video production companies quote prices that do not fit the budgets of small, aspiring businesses. Our goal is to fill that need by building partnerships with local businesses in search of our solutions and, in the process, become the best video production company in New Hampshire and New England.

Our Values

Honesty | Integrity | Affordability | Respect | Accountability | Efficiency | Intelligence | Creativity

Meet Jonathan Stallsmith
Founder, LLC Manager

Jonathan Stallsmith founded Purple Finch Productions after a decade of experience in sports marketing and video production. A native of Hanover, N.H., Jonathan headed west after high school to pursue a degree in Communications at the University of Southern California. During his time at USC, he worked for the Trojans athletic department in its video division and also anchored on the award-winning Annenberg TV News. He graduated in 2009 with his BA and minors in Marketing and Journalism.

Jonathan's first professional opportunity took him north to the Bay Area were he served as a video producer for the San Francisco 49ers, filming game highlights, producing video specials, and interviewing players and coaches. He leveraged that into a one-way plane ticket home by landing a job at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. At NHMS, he built a video content program from scratch, while maitaining the daily content of the organization's website and shepherding the site through two rebuilds. He also grew the company's social media followings ten-fold and produced two viral videos with over two million views each that promoted NHMS's "NASCAR New England Style" branding campaign.

Jonathan takes pride in his team-first approach to life. He's always been comfortable playing the best role to help the team win, which often means stepping outside the spotlight and serving a complementary role in the success of others. He hopes to bring that approach to a partnership with your team, playing an integral role in the background of your success.
