What I do
I am Steven Burneson. Burneson Film is my one-man band.
I specialize in the production of high-quality video content, in short periods of time, with limited resources. I open the door to video for individuals and companies who may not have thousands of dollars in their marketing budgets.
Since starting Burneson Film in the winter of 2017, I've had the pleasure of working with:
Legacy Navigator LLC
King of Pops (Richmond & Atlanta)
Hanover County Public Schools
VCU's Partnership for People with Disabilities
Cadence Theatre Company
The Latin Ballet of Virginia
richmond performing arts alliance
richmond Corporate Video
Creative Mornings RVA
I studied cinema production at Virginia Tech, where I received honors for my contributions to the production programs. Post graduation, I remained at Virginia Tech for two semesters as a teacher's assistant, aiding in the development of undergraduate's cinematic storytelling skills.
My first independent short film "Jiggle the Knob" screened at film festivals across the country. The film won Best Narrative Short Film at the 2018 Progeny Film Festival and most recently screened at the 2018 Richmond International Film Festival. My most-recent project, the animated short "Rickety's Birdhouse," won Best Family Short Script at the 2018 Hollywood Hills Awards. Currently, I am an inaugural fellow of Cadence Theatre Company's Pipeline New Works Fellowship, wherein I am developing an original script under the guidance of Pulitzer Prize-winning writer David Lindsay-Abaire.
As a writer, director, videographer, and editor, I specialize in brand content, event coverage, and both documentary and narrative storytelling.
