A short story

About Us.

Over the past 12 years of creating video, we’ve seen a lot. It’s proven: stories sell, and that’s why “Narrative.” In a world where anyone with a cell phone or a drone can make a video, there’s a lot of noise out there. Narrative Digital Media was founded to help you craft your brand position and communicate it with stunning videography and strategy that will cut through. We don’t invest in old buildings and ping pong tables, we invest in better media, which means we invest 100% in your business.

What's Important To Us

Customer Service

We act as an extension of your own business, meaning we are in it for you. We want to take care of you and make every aspect of working with us as beneficial as possible. We take time to actually listen to what you need and understand your situation, then create an experience that benefits everyone involved.


Anyone with a smartphone can make a video today. We do what we do because we want to make things that truly help and transform our partners. We’ve seen the benefits of our work first hand, and when you partner with us, you can rest assured knowing you have someone looking out for your best interest, that has done this several times before. In a world where everyone says they can do everything, we focus on one thing and do it well. If you want to talk to any of our past partners who know what the experience is like, we will gladly provide you with contact information (if they allow).


We love what we do. We create this content because we know it’s the most powerful tool for people to use and consume today. We love our craft, we love helping businesses, we love Northeast Ohio, and we make sure this is reflected in the work we do. People can tell if passion is in something that they watch, and we work hard to instill it in the content we make.


Technology and methods improve literally every single day when it comes to video. We strive to always improve our gear, our talent, how we use it, and what we make for our partners. Videos are so much more than filming it, and that’s why we pursue understanding the message, the audience, their psychology, and how to make content that resonates with them too.


When you work with us, we want you to have some fun. Life is stressful, work is stressful, sometimes creating content is stressful. We go out of our way to make sure everything we do for you is not only done well, but we all have a little bit of fun doing it. 

Founder & Principal

Mario Micale

I first picked up a camera in the 6th grade for an English project. My group was assigned to create a video that illustrates a section of a book the class was reading. From that moment on, I became fascinated with the filming and editing process and constantly worked to improve my skills. I really discovered my passion for video in high school.

During high school, I refined my skills and worked with my classmates to create several powerful videos for the school, including a few that went viral. When I saw the look of amazement, joy, and awe on the viewer’s face when they watched these videos, I realized that these were powerful tools and that this was something I wanted to bring to others for the rest of my life. 

I studied media production and business at the University of Akron, where immediately upon graduation I launched Narrative Digital Media LLC. I saw a real need to help businesses of all sizes create content that is good, engaging, and amazing. Stories and moments are what bring people together, and I truly believe that sharing these stories and experiences through one of the most powerful mediums that exists today is what helps not only businesses grow, but enrich all of us as humans. I hope we get to work together soon!
