Green Sky

Storytellers for Your Brand

What's Your Story?

What’s Your Story?

Green Sky was formed to help purposeful businesses and organizations share stories that attract, influence, and sell. Originality, quality, detail, storytelling. It’s what we do. We’re cinematographers, photographers, editors, directors, producers and dreamers with a common goal: to create an atmosphere for our clients where honesty, creativity and passion thrive. Our foundation of trust, respect and integrity has allowed us to continually create influential work and, most importantly, form outstanding relationships. We find value in each background, culture and relationship we form and have found that these values both energize and inspire our work and our team. We take our craft seriously, but also have fun while producing memorable videos, films and photographs for our clients. Our ultimate goal is to not only make well executed films and take beautiful photographs, but to add depth to a brand’s story and challenge every project to deliver a message filled with purpose, substance and passion.

So, what’s your story?

Adam Green

Adam has been working professionally in the creative industry for over 15 years working as a writer, designer, cinematographer, editor, creative director, producer and director. A jack-of-all-trades storyteller and self-taught filmmaker, Adam has enjoyed building strong personal and business relationships while growing Green Sky from his 1-bedroom apartment ten years ago into a sought after studio partnering with some of the biggest agencies and brands in the world. When he’s not working on a Green Sky project or putting out fires, he loves music, traveling, adventure, and spending time with his beautiful wife Andrea, daughters Sophia and Alexandra, and son Roman.

He told me his last name was Green. “Green?” I asked. “Can you spell that for me? I’m colorblind.

Alex Hoxie

After completing his degree in Cinematography at Columbia College, Alex returned to Detroit to explore portraiture and make good art with good friends. Before joining the Green Sky team, Alex honed his skills as a freelancer shooting advertisements, shiny products, gritty short films, and the occasional Most-Amazing-Music-Video-You’ll-Probably-Never-See. Alex lives in Ferndale with his girlfriend and spends hours carefully cultivating facial hair to match his big shaggy dog Oskar. He still shoots with his Grandfather’s cameras, and is always in search of the next great project.

New Day, New Beard.

John Shaw

John is a film and video lifer. And, while media has always been a part of John’s DNA, his first real break into the industry started at Green Sky during it’s “gold rush” in video production. During this time, John garnered heaps of experience filming beautiful cars, brands, people, and locations. He became accustomed to life on the road, eating too much good food, and having a lot of fun with his work. John recently switched over from his full time position to continue pursuing his passion for narrative filmmaking and is currently working towards his MFA in Cinema Directing at DePaul Univeristy with plans to direct his first feature film after graduation. However, in the meantime, he still works with GSC as a part-time “weekend warrior” cinematographer and editor every chance he can.

He grew up eating VHS copies of Space Jam for breakfast and sleeping on a hammock made out of c-stands and gaff tape.

Melissa Hittle

Melissa is a person who gets things done. She has a knack for making things look easy with an upbeat personality and an in-depth knowledge of the marketing world. Born to multitask, whether in her role as mother of three or associate producer, Melissa exercises an uncanny ability to quickly adapt to change and figure things out. Energized by working with others, Melissa is the ultimate people person and is committed to preserving the integrity and vision of the project. When it comes to the fast-paced, every-changing production environment, there are strategic thinkers and roll-up-your-sleeve doers. And, then there’s Melissa – she does both on time, on budget and with a smile.  When she’s not at work, you’ll most likely find Melissa playing tennis, reading, running, or entertaining family and friends.

Melissa gets sh#t done.

TJ Carswell

TJ is a man built for the outdoors. The first thing to inspire him to capture beautiful images for photo and video was the forests of Michigan. He thoroughly enjoys coffee, hiking on local nature trails and snapping the best photos he can get of the scenery. When he isn’t on one of his “expeditions” you could most likely find him taking on the biggest burrito he can find. Local urban legends refer to him as, “Voldugu Eldfjall Stormur”, which roughly translates from Icelandic to, “The Mighty Volcano Storm.” Relatively new to the Green Sky team, TJ is looking forward to gaining experience while assisting in the production of some great content.
