Having the chance to work week after week on so many projects that vary in budget and complexity over 14 years of business, we have been able to fine tune our creative and project processes in order to extend the value of each dollar allocated to us.
As a producer, director, director of photography, and Emmy® Award winning editor, Bradford has worked on a wide variety of projects from corporate marketing videos, music videos, television commercials, and national broadcast shows. It must run in the blood because Brad’s grandfather was instrumental in the first ever educational/informational (i/e) programing for PBS.
Not only does he produce and direct, but Bradford approaches every project though the eyes of an accomplished, award-winning editor.
He has edited national broadcasts of the 41st & 42nd Annual Dove Awards, the Stellar Awards since 2007, the Trumpet Awards, and earned an Emmy® for the editing of the national broadcast of “The Time Jumpers” for American Public Broadcasting. Brad is currently a producer for a new national television series for PBS called "Our Amercian Family" that profiles family life between 1900 & 1950 and the extrodinary stories they have to tell. Brad is not just passionate about his work but also for his loving wife Erin and his sons Bradford II and Barrett.

It started early for Brock. He got his first video camera at the age of 12. It was supposed to be a family Christmas present but he latched on to it and wouldn't let go. Little did he know that his passion for cinematography at such an early age would lead to an amazing career doing what he loves.
After graduating from North Carolina State University with a B.A. in Mass Communication, Brock packed his bags and moved to Nashville. He knew that he wanted to work in the film industry so naturally the "Music City" seemed like the logical choice. Well, it wasn't as easy as he had hoped it would be. After sleeping in his car and taking showers at the local truck stop for several weeks, he almost gave up on his dream. As he was figuring out his next move, he got the call to go on tour as a camera operator. The rest is history.
Fast forward nearly two decades. Brock parlayed his early momentum in the industry to become a very successful Director, Producer and Camera Operator. He has traveled all over the world working on various television shows and music videos.
When he isn't working, Brock enjoys riding motorcycles, lifting weights and writing music. However, his best times are spent with his beautiful wife Amy and their amazing kids, Elijah and Ellie Grace.
From our inception, BlueSky has always believed in giving back to our community. Our clients tell us all the time that the services we offer and products we produce have high value and effectiveness toward changing the way people think. We are always seeking non-profit organizations that have needs that we can fill. Our belief is simple... You received without paying; give without pay. We pray that others take our lead and share the talents that have been given to them.
BlueSky Filmworks, Inc. since 2009 has been helping to market, fund-raise, and share the amazing works of Safe Haven Family Shelter. This is Nashville's only shelter that keeps the family together as they recover from homelessness. We believe that the worst thing that a family can go through is being separated after losing a home. BlueSky not only gives financially to Safe Haven, but also has and continues to produce numerous videos and more importantly the annual fundraising event "Dancing for Safe Haven". This event raises over a quarter of a million dollars annually to help homeless Nashville families get back on their feet. We are proud to be the official production company for Safe Haven.
Our partner Bradford Van Demark, was amazed by the impact High Hopes has had on his adopted son Barrett. BlueSky became an instant trumpeter for the organization and has produced numerous videos and has a place on the advisory board for the organization. When you walk into this organization, it becomes immediately apparent how much impact and success High Hopes is having to equip children and youth to reach their maximum potential.
The Covenant School is a unique private school that not only gives back to the community through scholarships but changes how children view the importance of faith in school. BlueSky stands firmly behind this mission and is proud to be a supporter of The Covenant School.
