3RD I MEDIA also is active PUBLISHING works of fiction of the highest literary quality—stories that challenge and inspire. Our films, photos and books express ultimately positive world-views. We seek to instill visions of a better future for humanity through expanded perspectives and deeper levels of self-awareness. We are not genre-specific in our creative work, but our vision most frequently lends itself to certain established forms within the industry—most notably science and speculative fictions.

3RD I is a small, full-service media and publishing company. For further information, see:



Recognizing that so much of the media consumed today is of a lifeless, consumerist quality, 3RD I seeks to produce, publish and promote market-viable image and books that contribute to an expanding human consciousness—simply put, we put more into our work.

“Date Night” at 2199 Diamond Creek Dr

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Visual

3rd I Media recently had the privilege to work with acclaimed Colorado Springs Realtor, Tina Swonger, on the production of a real estate LIFESTYLE VIDEO, “Date Night” at 2199 Diamond Creek Dr. The Lifestyle Video concept is a relatively new one, certainly in Colorado Springs, and seeks to present an image of potential buyers actually LIVING their lives within a home, rather than just a static video or photo presentation of the home itself. Thanks to the Boyce family, for looking good, and for the friendly and professional folks at The Club at Flying Horse for allowing us to film at their beautiful facility:


This video represents a beginning, exploring the Lifestyle Video concept. Stay tuned for further! Information on the house for sale can be found here: 2199 Diamond Creek Dr

Devil Song—Whiskey Kate

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Visual

3rd I Media produced this demo video for Whiskey Kate, a dynamic, ascending artist out of Colorado, USA. Kate wanted a realistic, unfiltered, gritty look (and sound) for this video—reflecting her own evolution as a musician. The video was produced without shots or further camera work. Special thanks to Maddie’s Biergarten in Castle Rock, Colorado who allowed us the opportunity to film. Maddie’s is a small venue, but is rapidly becoming a hub, a gravitational center for good music, for the REAL STUFF.
