Message was pleased to work with Black Hills Ammunition on a video showcasing the grit, zeal and quirkiness of their employees. Because of these people and their connection to the ammo – Black Hills is counted among the finest in the world.

  1. Nice work Jason. You could really see the employee’s passion for what they do each day (loved the profile shots and the background tunes, too!). Interestingly, last night Bryan Walker from Spearfish Economic Development mentioned firearms as one of the top industries South Dakota is looking to attract and said there are 38 firearms and firearms related manufacturers in South Dakota and 22 of those located in the Black Hills. I know SD is a gun friendly state but had no idea the number of related firearms businesses here.

    • Thanks Michelle. Yah, South Dakota is certainly making a case for itself as a hot spot for firearms related businesses. As it should. The stats make a heady case. SD ranks in the top five nationally for small business survival, tax freedom and cost of doing biz. Add in our abundance of hunting, fishing and other outdoor pursuits and you can see why we make a strong case for that particular business model.

  2. Nice work….as usual. Camera work makes it so real, you feel like you are there watching them work. Nice to see a highlight of unique, hard-working individuals.

    • Thanks Alexa. Good to hear. That was our main objective in producing this piece. Showing each individual’s passion (be it inside or outside the facility) and how that said passion connects them back to the product they are making. Craftsmanship is certainly alive and well in America. More specifically, South Dakota. Black Hills Ammunition is living proof.

  3. Great job. Love the character development and use of sepia.

  4. Nice, easy listening, not hard sell. Where will this be used?

  5. Nicely Done Jason!!! Rick, Chris & the crew from Crow Ridge do the video? Great Job!!

  6. Hey Man,
    This turned out wonderfully! It looks awesome, sounds awesome and flows fantastically.

    I can’t wait to see more. 🙂


  7. Jason – this is a work of art. The sound, visuals and character development are incredible. So glad you entered them in the ADDY Awards Competition. Masterfully done.
