Turning a passion into a career

My   name   is   John   Deyo   and   I   am   the   owner   of   ViDeyo   Arts.   My   last   name   is   pronounced DEE-OH,   so   the   name   of   the   business   is   pronounced   just   like   Video Arts.   My   uncles   name was   Raymond,   so   we   always   referred   to   him   as   “Uncle   Radio”,   get   it...Ray   Deyo,   radio. So   with   a   name   like   that,   I   was   destined   for   this   line   of   work.   I’ve   had   a   passion   for electronic   gadgets   since   I   was   16   years   old   selling   appliances   and   stereos   at   the   all   new K-Mart   store   on   North   Main   Street   in   Austin.   My   love   of   art   and   design   was   key   to   my decision   to   obtain   a   degree   in   Graphic   Design.   I   use   those   skills   everyday   in   the   art   of videography,   storytelling,   web   design   and   packaging.   In   1985,   I   invested   in   the   all   new AMIGA   computer,   so   I   could   do   computer   animation.   I   began   working   freelance   for   the area   television   stations   and   before   long   was   working   so   much   for   KIMT   in   Mason   City, Iowa   that   they   simply   decided   to   put   me   on   staff.   I   spent   17   years   in   broadcast television,   learning   the   ins   and   outs   of   editing,   composition,   storytelling,   directing   live events   and   so   much   more. After   10   years   at   KIMT,   I   moved   on   to   KTTC   in   Rochester,   MN and   became   the   Director   of   Creative   Services,   making   all   kinds   of   great   commercials. To   this   day   I   still   get   recognized   as   the   Best   Western   Apache   guy.   All   the   while   I   was working   in TV,   I   was   building   ViDeyo Arts   until   it   grew   to   the   point   where   I   couldn’t   hold down   two   full   time   jobs   and   had   to   give   up   one.   ViDeyo Arts   has   been   my   full-time   job since 2001.

Filling a need

ViDeyo   Arts   is   unique   in   a   lot   of   ways.   There’s   not   a   storefront   videographer   on   every corner   in   most   towns.   We’re   kind   of   rare.   And   most   videographers   I   know   specialize   in one   or   two   areas   of   video   production.   Not   ViDeyo   Arts.   We   work   on   all   types   of   video, from   small   transfer   projects   to   wedding   video   and   major   corporate   projects.   We   even produced   a   full   13   episode   television   series.   If   we   have   a   specialty,   it   is   LIVE   EVENT coverage.   My   crew   and   I   just   love   coming   out   to   live   shows   like   concerts,   speakers, theatre,   sports,   dance,   and   skating.   It   is   always   so   much   fun   to   be   involved   in   the   LIVE event,   knowing   that   you   have   one   chance   to   get   it   right.   We   pride   ourselves   on   our   LIVE EVENT   coverage.   If   you   would   have   asked   me   in   High   School   what   I’d   be   doing   in   the future,   I   wouldn’t   have   dreamed   it   would   be   this,   but   I   love   it   and   would   find   it   hard   to do anything else.
