Hi, I’m Tara Garwood!

I'm an award-winning filmmaker (and actor) with a decade of experience behind the lens and a couple more decades in front of it.

I bring my knowledge, skill, and “can do” attitude to my video marketing business, Banner Day Films, specializing in creating videos that help nonprofits and mission-based businesses change the world.

I thrive on working with my clients to tell their stories in creative and meaningful ways.

Oh, and I've never met a dog I didn't like!
