At Ocean Llama, transparency and authenticity are at the core of what we do. While the term “we” has been used extensively throughout this site, I think its important to introduce myself. My name is Eric Stemen, and I’ve been the driving force behind Ocean Llama since its inception in 2013-ish.

The Journey Begins

My passion for visual storytelling awoke in 2002 when my friends and I began creating BMX videos around Elizabethtown and Louisville. I won’t bother with throwing up a video player on this page but here’s a few links to those old videos to see what I used to be into.

Personalized Video Production

The early experiences shaped my philosophy on what makes impactful video content. At Ocean Llama, our projects are handled by one or two people from start to finish – from the initial conversation, to recording and editing. This approach ensures a consistent artistic vision throughout the entire process, resulting in final products that feel organic and true to the original intention.

While the term “we” is used, Ocean Llama is a personal endeavor fueled by my passion and commitment to exceptional storytelling. However, the approach is driven by a genuine desire to help businesses increase sales by building trust and connecting with their audiences on a personal level.

We understand the importance of integrity in this industry, which is why we strive to create content that resonates with your viewers, capturing the essence of your brand and the people behind it. In today’s competitive landscape, having the coolest product or service is no longer enough; audiences seek companies they can relate to, build a relationship with and trust.

Creating Authentic Videos People Relate To

We rarely do scripted, predefined talking points. Instead, we have real conversations with your employees and customers, then craft genuine stories from the best moments.

You don’t need to stress about what to say or memorize lines. Just talk to us like you would a friend. We’re here to let the world know about the problems your company solves and the awesome people behind your business.

At the end of the day, people connect with other people. That’s why our videos help you form genuine relationships with your customers. Nothing fake, no filler – just real stories that resonate.

So if you’re ready to ditch the script, Let’s talk. We can’t wait to help you share your story.
