Manuel Palos is a San Francisco sculptor born and raised in Mexico and son of a shoemaker. In this video he tells his story that while a child in Mexico he made clay figures to sell on the street. He shows us how he learned to “talk” to his creations and “listen” to each of them. His skilled hands have brought to life hundreds of pieces of clay and marble. Manuel Palos has made himself into an acclaimed artist. He has completed works for the San Francisco Palace of Fine Arts and well-known clients such as Nicolas Cage. And he wants to do more.
Companies, organizations, products, and services...all have stories to tell. Video offers the opportunity to connect emotionally with viewers and make a great first impression. At heart, I am a storyteller, and yet I am fully aware of the practical and logistical needs of a business and its clients. One of my strengths is helping to “find the story” and then creating a vivid and compelling video efficiently and succinctly but one with “heart and passion”
"I had the great pleasure of working with Richard this past summer when he made a video about my artwork and me. Richard made everything easy and his editing skills were perfect. I found Richard finely attuned to the work itself, to how I expressed myself and what the important factors were in making a great video. He even noticed the music I was playing and took off from there for the background music for my video. I have had great success in using my video to promote my work online and as a means of providing information to galleries. I would recommend Richard to anyone."

“Jett fully harnesses the power of the medium that can only be told by a visual storyteller.”

“Jett is a dream to work with! He really understands how to tell a visual story. I’d worked with Richard over many decades where he created stunning visuals as a Director of Photography on high end commercials… so I knew his capabilities well … yet, he still surpassed my expectations … giving his full attention even though it was a smaller job, being flexible and willing to make this a terrific piece, at a very fair price and with little notice. Best of all, there’s no diva personality that often goes along with a true master of the art”

“I've know RIchard since 1992 and had the pleasure of working with him on numerous projects for company's like Yahoo! and Levi's. Richard is a creative talent, highly organized, has gobs of experience and brings energy and creativity to everything he does. In particular I notice that Richard is usually a step or two ahead of the technological curve.”
