How did we become Zero Gravity?
A lot of people ask us where we got the name “Zero Gravity.” First, we chose it because -well- we thought it sounds cool. And because we feel Zero Gravity is boundless… limitless. That’s what we want for our clients – to remove all boundaries so they can realize their vision.
Zero Gravity has provided creative media design, motion-picture photography, and video edit services for a wide range of clients for over 20 years. We have over 60 years of combined experience, so you know you are in good hands. We are located in Columbia, SC, but we serve clients from across South Carolina and the nation near you with videos for broadcast television, corporate communications, and the web. We deliver outstanding quality at every budget level.
