Conner Harville

This is my “bio section”. It is where I tell you how passionate and invested I am in telling a great story. This page is also where I talk about how I am trying to push the industry of visual storytelling. This is the place I casually mention brands like the NFL, Nike, Pilot Flying J, Cleveland Browns and others in case that might entice you to take a deeper look. And this is also where I talk about my desires to elevate the quality of the projects that I get to work on.

All of these are true, but how many times have you read that?

Let’s talk and we can figure things out together.

Kevin O’Brien

I love to tell short stories that move people toward empathy, summon goosebumps,
and ultimately connect brands with all the feels.

I help you connect those things in a subtle, unassuming way.

I’ve been doing this for about a decade. I started by creating short films and quickly became a leader in online story-driven content for communicators. Then I made an award-winning feature film (At the End of the Day). Now I love helping brands move people toward positive vibes and emotions using empathy and relationships.

So let’s tell a story, you and I.
