We are a nonfiction entertainment firm whose work meets at the intersection of culture and film.
We work with businesses and organizations that want to experiment with new ways of seeing and sharing the human experience. Understanding how to tell, share, and communicate a story effectively is at the center of everything we do.
We offer pre-production, production and post-production services for both short and long form nonfiction projects in film, television, and digital media.
We instruct, design, implement and train educators/students on media literacy education. Our media literacy focus is specifically on moving image literacy, teaching students and instructors how to become literate (reading and writing) in what you watch on a screen.
We develop messaging and media strategies to manage and modernize your storytelling tools and create content strategies for communities of color in the southeast United States.

Sherard Duvall is a master of initiating connections between important community stakeholders to amplify the impact of creative projects. In particular, Duvall is adept at identifying intuitive means by which clients can reach target audience groups, while helping to establish the visual communication and messaging required to do so in an authentic, meaningful way. Duvall provided crucial creative guidance to the Green Book of South Carolina mobile travel guide project, advising on everything from creative strategy, brand development and messaging to community marketing and stakeholder engagement. We also have worked with Duvall in his capacity as a film producer and director, and we’ve always been fans of his work. We hope to work with Duvall many more times in the future. @FlockandRally http://www.flockandrally.com
It has been our pleasure working with Sherard Duvall and OTR Media Group on the concept and development of the Green Book of South Carolina, the state’s first online travel guide to African American cultural sites. They demonstrated an outstanding command of strategic communications to provide wise counsel, and they custom-tailored their approaches to meet our specific requests and goals. With their insight, we were able to better understand the project’s realistic appeal and potential for media coverage. OTR Media Group was a key partner in this project and we would be happy to seek their counsel on the next one.

OTR Media Group worked with our students this summer at Olympia Learning Center. The instruction was very thorough. Students learned about “media literacy” and how to read and write film. The curriculum provided stepbystep instruction that the students could easily follow. Clips from other videos kept the students engaged and handson work with the camera made the sessions interactive and fun. They came away with a finished project that showed their knowledge and ability to produce a carefully planned production. The school was very pleased with the outcome of the students projects and the professionalism of the teacher.
