About Rafferty Weiss

About Rafferty Weiss

Creativity and reliability make RaffertyWeiss a leader in media production. We are a certified small business, and as such the success of our company is based upon our reputation for reliably delivering high quality, creative solutions for broadcast television, online video and other types of media. We have found that the best way to create the highest quality product at a reasonable cost is to treat each project as a unique entity. We are a successful media production company because we keep our core group of employees small, while establishing relationships with some of the best independent talent in our industry. This means we can tailor personnel and equipment perfectly to the unique demands of each project.

For over twenty years, our experienced team has served a wide variety of clients including corporations, associations, non-profits, educational institutions, public relations firms, advertising agencies, and federal, state and local government. RaffertyWeiss clients are a diverse group with different needs, both large and small. Depending on your requirements, we can provide a portion of a project - like scriptwriting or shooting - or we can produce the project entirely from start to finish.
