Driftwood Stories: Driftwood Stories was started with a mission to provide quality media production to everyday people, small businesses, and nonprofits. We've worked hard to maintain a flexible skillset with lots of experience in nearly all areas of the production cycle.
The possibilities of video in today's digital world are limitless, and we aim to help you keep up. We believe that all businesses can benefit from video, and offer scalable services for all sizes and budgets. We strive to make video production accessible. You don't need a Superbowl budget to make compelling, passionate, and marketable assets to take your business to the next level. We are working hard every day to develop a middle ground for people with big ideas who never thought video marketing could fit into their plans.
Each project is approached in a hands-on, individualized fashion. It involves listening, collaborating, and executing, all while having some fun along the way. With clients ranging from major universities to local non-profits, couples getting married to independent feature films, we've done it all. It's through these many collaborative efforts that we've obtained the expertise, creative eye, and network to bring your vision to life.
The goal to provide quality content creation in an affordable way is what drives Driftwood Stories to continue to learn, expand, and ultimately, tell your story, while making you a little part of ours.
The Founder: Adrienne Wagner (she, her) is a storyteller originally from Indianapolis. After receiving degrees in media production and communication from Indiana University, Adrienne moved to Portland, Oregon where she began editing and shooting video for a local production company. Since relocating to Pittsburgh, PA in 2016, Adrienne has taken on the role of Cinematographer in the feature film, "Bystander," as well as several short films, a feature documentary, and various commercial projects. She is also a Teaching Artist for Steeltown Entertainment. Her first short film, "My Grandpa's Garage," has been featured in film festivals throughout the United States, including the national CINE awards, Indianapolis' Heartland Film Festival, the historic Clinton Theater shorts program in Portland, and was awarded "Best Editing" at the Indie Oaks film festival in 2017. Adrienne wears many hats. She's often a one-woman-band production team, with experience in many different areas of the production process. However, when a project calls for something more, she has the network to bring together the best team for the job.

Adrienne is so incredibly talented and an absolute dream to work with. She was great at communicating leading up to our wedding — willing to work with us and customize a package for our unique three-day Indian fusion extravaganza. Adrienne is so easy going and worked seamlessly with all our other vendors. Just as the company name suggests, the final video she created for us told a beautiful story showcasing all the emotions felt during our wedding. Almost every person who has seen it has teared up and we can’t count the number of times we’ve watched it ourselves. We recommend her to anyone with an upcoming wedding. We were so lucky to have worked with Adrienne (and Reza, her amazing 2nd shooter/drone pilot) and hope you get the chance to work with her too. More...
It was a joy to work with Adrienne and Driftwood Stories, and I strongly recommend her for her cheerful personality, professionalism, strong work ethic, and expertise specifically in pre-production and production.
