No Umbrella Media is a video production company, based in Portland, Maine

At No Umbrella Media, our clients hire us to build video tools. We work with clients to understand all project elements: genre, messaging, audience, versions, channels, timeline, budget, personnel, resources, regulations and other nuanced factors.

We have experience producing and directing: documentaries, event coverage, presentation tools, product videos, journalism-style video packages, many outcome-based web videos (recruitment, event promotion, crowd-funding), digital campaign tools, and plenty of other weird projects.

We hope our work speaks for itself and we pride ourselves on being professional, responsive, and easy to work with. If you’d like to talk about your video idea, please reach out at
