Davidson Networking Spotlight: Anna Campbell at Best Video Jax

April 17, 2019


Anna Campbell is never one to stand still long. Not only is she a public claims adjuster and college student working toward a degree in English, she is also owner of production company Best Video Jax.


Anna has been working in television for six years (and attended film school for two-and-a-half years), during which time she has gained expertise in sales, radio frequency engineering and video production. Today, she brings both passion and experience to her growing company.


Amid her busy schedule, Anna also finds time to attend Davidson Realty’s monthly Networking events. Best Video Jax will even as sponsor at the April event in Jacksonville Beach!


Said Anna, “Davidson has always been one of my favorite networking events in Jacksonville and St. Augustine. The events attract a lot of successful business owners in Jacksonville.” She added, “The food is always amazing, and the craft beers are a cherry on the top.”

When did you open Best Video Jax?  January 4th of 2018. We were formally known as Higher Places Productions. The reason I chose to change the name was to cater to the local companies in Jacksonville. As a former Jacksonville Jaguars model, I enjoy the Jacksonville culture and working it into my clients’ videos.



What inspired you to launch your own business?  I always knew I wanted to have my own business. The first day I ever used a broadcast camera, I knew I wanted to own a video production company. That was five years ago. I was listening to a Three Days Grace song. It said, “If you can’t stand the way this place is, take yourself to higher places.” That’s how I came up with the original name.


It looks like you offer videography as well as photography, correct?  Yes, we do! I like to take the client from point A to point Z. Going with a company gives the client a lot bigger advantage rather than going with a freelance videographer. We now offer internet marketing such as Facebook ads, Google AdWords, and social media management.


What sets you apart from other similar services?  I have a background in television and marketing. So the client can have their commercial made for TV or their website. Yes, they are different styles of video. We also sign the rights of the video to the client. This saves them about $700 a year in licensing fees.


What has been your biggest career win to date?  That’s a hard one! I’ve done work for Beaver Toyota, Volkswagen, and the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. But I’d say my favorite project I’ve done was for AM Credit Repair. After owner Aaron’s video was finished, he was getting clients from out of state. He told me it was a huge turning point in his business. To me, that’s the biggest success. Having clients come back and say they never thought they could grow to these levels after their video was made. That’s why I love what I do.


What was the most fun shoot you’ve done?  I really liked shooting A1A Moving & Transport. We had drones, spokes models, photographers, and actors. I also liked shooting North Jax CrossFit. With that one, it was a testimony style video. The man came into CrossFit weighing almost 400 lbs. and now is at 360 lbs. I used to be scared to try CrossFit but seeing and filming someone like him was truly inspiring.


What business advice would you give your younger self just starting out? Don’t listen to what your “close friends” or family think you can or can’t do in life. No matter your past, or what you’ve heard your whole life, you determine your future. I was told many times in my childhood and early adult life I’d never make it in the business world. Life is limitless; take the advantage. 


What do you like to do in your free time?  I don’t have too much of that! But when I do, I enjoy CrossFit, surfing, anything physical, and watching true crime documentaries.
