Here at LGCY, we’ve seen massive growth recently in our multimedia marketing department, and one huge reason for that is the work of our videographer, Pierce Tews. Pierce has been with us for about 6 months and has been a vital member of our team since day one. I sat down with him to learn more about his creative process and how he does the job he does.
Q: What do you do for LGCY?
A: I make videos of any sorts. I make marketing videos to promote the company, recruiting videos to get more sales reps, training videos… any kind of content that has to do with videography.
Q: How did you get into videography?
A: I have always had an interest for videos since I was a kid. When I was younger, my mom had a little video camera that I would take and film stuff. I would always think, “Oh that’s cool!” and so ever since I’ve tried to capture what inspires me on video.
Q: What does your work say about you?
A: I would hope that my work would say that I’m creative, passionate about what I do, that I take my time, that I don’t cut corners, and that I have a unique style. Most of all, I’d hope that it would say that I capture emotion in true moments that happen in life.
Q: Where do you fit in to LGCY’s mission?
A: I think everyone at some point in their life has watched a video that inspired them or moved them to change something, do something, or be something. LGCY’s mission is to become the best version of yourself, and I think my team and I have created a lot of videos that have inspired people to do better or have reminded of times in their careers or lives that they were living the way they wanted to be. The videos we create are reminders or inspiration to be the best version of yourself.
Q: What does a typical day look like for you?
A: There really is no typical day. It could be one of two types of days. One, I could be at an event or travelling to cover something, which includes a day full of filming… or I’m at the office, putting together the videos.
Q: What are your hobbies outside videography?
A: My favorite thing to do is to go canyoneering. One of my favorite places to go is in Neon Canyon in southern Utah. It’s been featured on National Geographic as one of the top 10 adventures in the world. I’ve done it twice, it’s incredible. Other hobbies are rock climbing, skateboarding, and hanging out with my dog.
Q: Who is your hero?
A: My hero is my dog Goldie. She is always so patient and sweet. You could literally do anything in the world to her and she would love you and treat you well. I wish I were like her.
Q: What motivates you?
A: I am motivated by freedom, or the ability to be free. A lot of life is spent doing things we don’t like to do or are hard to do, and at the end of our lives, we might feel “I didn’t get to do anything that I wanted to.” I’m motivated by giving myself opportunities to experience things that I’ve dreamed of doing and to give my family those same experiences.
At LGCY Power, we believe in 6 Key Leadership Principles. Abiding by these principles will truly help us become better leaders and better people; can in fact, help us become the best version of ourselves.
The first Leadership Principle we stand for is to Play Full Out. What does this mean? Webster’s online dictionary defines full-out as: “made or done with as much effort as possible.” That sums it up fairly well, but what does this mean for us? It could mean going a thousand miles an hour all the time, doing 52 things at once, never putting your phone down, answering 3 texts, 6 emails, and a voicemail simultaneously, eating energy bars and Red Bulls in the car between appointments, knocking just one more door, then one more, then another. It could mean all these things, and in a lot of ways, it does. This is what playing full out can look like.
It can be more than this. Not doing more, but meaning more. Playing Full Out means knowing what you want; what your goals are, what your essential purpose is, and being entirely committed to getting what you want. It means that if you don’t know this yet, you devote the time and energy you deserve to figuring it out.
Playing Full Out means being so focused on your goals – on your vision – that you don’t allow yourself to get pulled into things that are distracting, things that don’t matter, things that will pull you away from where you want to be.
Playing Full Out means that you are willing to do things that you don’t necessarily want to do, that you are scared to do, that you have never done before, and doing them anyway.
Playing Full Out means that you are willing to risk failure or embarrassment or whatever it takes to achieve your goals.
Playing Full Out means surrounding yourself with people who encourage your dreams and are willing to help you get them. It means removing from your life people who are draining, negative, or naysayers.
Playing Full Out means understanding that thoughts become words and words become actions, and keeping them positive, supportive, appreciative, and enthusiastic of others and of myself.
Playing Full Out means that you acknowledge your limits and will say no when you have to, so you don’t let others down.
Playing Full Out means that you play as hard as you work. It means allowing yourself time to relax and recharge. It means taking time to indulge in your hobbies, and enjoying your actual play time.
