Meet Vaughan Crittenden, owner and the talent behind Riverdale 24 Productions.
I have a passion for film and storytelling that began when I was young. When most “watched” a movie…I found myself the entire time trying to figure out how they “made” the movie. I picked up a video camera early in high school and there was no turning back. From filming during the middle of a hurricane (much to my parents dismay…I was only 16 at the time), to freelancing during my college years as the Communications Director for Langley Speedway in Hampton, Virginia, I began my business long before it had officially launched.
In 2015, I graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelors Degree in Media Arts & Design with a concentration in Digital Video and Cinema and a minor in Sports Communication. During my college career at JMU, I worked for the Athletic Department shooting and developing sports video content. From hype videos on the jumbo-tron to public relations pieces for the teams, I had a blast! After graduation, well….I wasn’t ready to leave it all behind – who is after college? I decided to stay briefly in Harrisonburg to hone new skills in a different filming arena and became a photojournalist for Station WHSV. My freelance work continued to grow, taking over my photojournalist job and I made the leap and officially launched Riverdale 24 Productions in July, 2016.
