About Big3 Communications
Big3 Communications was founded in 2014 as Big3 Films. Our founders were movie fanatics, just out of college in Tampa, FL. We watched everything from classics to cult favorites. Through this exploration, we developed a unique taste and a passion for gripping stories. It wasn't long before we teamed up to create our own content, starting with horror shorts, event coverage, and small business videos.
Along the way, we realized that video is even more powerful when it's supplemented by a strong online presence, so we rebranded as Big3 Media and expanded our services. We told stories through social media content and helped organizations control their story by managing online reviews. We learned that good writing lies at the core of all persuasive marketing. We honed our copywriting skills.
Today, we've gone back to our roots, focusing on the things that ignited our passion in the first place: story-driven writing and moving pictures. We've rebranded again as Big3 Communications because it's not just about creating media content: it's about starting a conversation.
