I’m Cory Sparkuhl, the proud owner of Sparkle Films LLC. https://www.sparklefilms.net/
I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.
Ever since my dad bought me a Hi8 camera when I was seven years old, I’ve had a passion for filmmaking. I grew up in Laguna Beach, where I shot films of my buddies and myself skateboarding and surfing. My hobby eventually turned into a healthy obsession, and I aspired to live and breathe filmmaking.
Once I decided that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, I enrolled at a film School in Los Angeles. I enthusiastically went on to complete my degree in cinematography and post-production.
Fresh out of college, I started working in the television industry for various producers and gained valuable experience on programs for television and the internet over seven prosperous years.
After learning the ropes, I decided to take a leap of faith and launch my own company in my hometown in 2010. I initially started with the support of one other cinematographer and grew the company progressively.
Little over a decade later, I’ve grown the team to five members and added the latest equipment to create a full-service media production house. I’ve now successfully served over a hundred clients, and last year, I generated over $40k worth of profits in a single month, which was particularly rewarding.
While money is not my primary motivation, being able to achieve financial milestones year on year, tells me that I must be doing something right. As an individual, I believe what sets me apart from others is my reliability, honesty, and integrity.
I endeavor to maintain open communication with the client and create a pleasant experience so that I can deliver a captivating final product that builds brand equity. Crafting creative storytelling has allowed me to get my clients’ message across to their target audience and has made me successful in the process.
I believe I was put on this earth to be a filmmaker, but when I am not crafting videos, I live every day like it’s my last. I love hanging out with my wife and dog, hiking in nature, and going to the beach.
I also derive pleasure from organizing barbecues with friends and family, traveling, exploring new things, and shooting landscape photographs. Last but not least, I go to the movies frequently as film is such a significant inspiration in my life.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
