Paladin Media Group is central Virginia’s premiere production company. We create beautifully powerful video for clients scattered from Charlottesville to San Francisco, from New Mexico to Minnesota. You may have an idea bouncing around in your head, or perhaps only half of an idea scratched out on a napkin. Paladin Media Group will bring those ideas to life. We give them legs, we prop them up, we wrap those ideas in video, and we help them fly. That's what we do, day after day, client after satisfied client.

Paladin Media Group is not a giant corporation, but we do great work for some giant companies. We are a modest, local, family-owned business and we call beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia our home. Paladin was founded in 1991 so we're not newcomers to the video world. We've survived several company moves, many video format and industry changes, as well as a little speed bump known as the Great Recession. We at Paladin are positioned today to help you and your business solve problems through video. We look forward to earning your trust.

Contact us today!

In addition to our creative video production services we also have a motion picture and documentary unit called Paladin Pictures.  We are also a strategic partner with the Community Films Foundation (501c3), with whom we work to help filmmakers and mission/humanitarian organizations better tell their stories!

We are Paladin Media Group.

Paladin Pictures To Premiere Award-Winning Film Tonight

Charlottesville, Virginia – August 16, 2005 – Paladin Pictures and The Brothers Williamson are set to screen their dramatic film When Love Walks In at the Vickers Theatre in Three Oaks, Michigan tonight and tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. The film continues its national tour, having recently shown at the Indie Gathering Film Festival in Cleveland, Ohio where it was awarded Best Feature Film in the dramatic category along with the Director’s Award for child actress Savannah Grace’s performance. These accolades are added to a growing list of honors that When Love Walks In has received, including Best Clean Flick, Best Actress, Best Soundtrack, Best Marketing, and a 2005 Telly Award.


When Love Walks In tells the story of John Redgrave, a photographer who struggles to raise his three-year-old daughter after his wife’s untimely death. Emotionally devastated, he attempts to pick-up the pieces of his shattered life with the help of his charming father and an unlikely new love interest. Elements of loss, love, and eventual restoration have audiences comparing When Love Walks In to films like Bounce starring Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow and Sleepless in Seattle starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.
 
Filmmakers Brad and Kent C. Williamson, known as The Brothers Williamson, will be in attendance for the Michigan premiere of When Love Walks In at the vintage Vickers Theatre. “We are thrilled to have a screening at the Vickers Theatre and to be a part of the chain of films that have played in this historic venue since the early 1900’s,” Kent Williamson explains. The theatre was originally built in the 1890’s as a livery to service the nearby train station and was converted in 1911 by Frank Lee and partners. The theatre was operated by different generations of the Lee family until finally changing ownership in the late 1970’s.

For more information, please email or call 434.817.2700. Paladin Pictures is dedicated to the production, distribution, and promotion of redemptive entertainment and educational media. Paladin Pictures strives to follow the example of the Paladin Order of Knighthood which, under the rule of Charlemagne, was charged with the task of preserving the values and virtues of the society and culture.
