Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Publishing, Uncategorized, Visual

3RD I MEDIA specializes in IMAGE production (moving and still) with an emphasis on Real Estate Image—high quality HDR (high-dynamic-range) still images and rich, enticing videos for brokers and specific listings. We are FAA certified Commercial Drone (UAV) pilots, and offer aerial imaging services also.

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.

Modesty Can Be Deceiving — 6770 Blue River Way

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

Last week, Kristan Rigdon with Cherry Creek Properties decided to break outside of the mould a bit and film this video on a seemingly modest house located in southeastern Colorado Springs. Some might think it overkill to a degree (the last video she did was for a home selling for literally 4 times the price), but she took a risk with this one, and it’s paying off — getting the home more exposure than it would normally receive, and also making a statement to her future clients: “This is what I will do for you and for your home, as well. I will go the extra mile.” Critical here, too, is the fact that this place is literally perfect. It was clearly LOVED by the people who lived in it for the last three decades (the same people). The yard is immaculate, and everywhere inside a sense of care radiates like some kind of physical light. We were privileged to provide the listing still photos as well, visible in HD on Kristan’s LISTING PAGE:


Twilight Shoot at 5945 Abbey Pond Lane

Although twilight shoots for real estate take a little bit longer to plan, they’re a great way to add something special to a real estate listing. We completed this one in two hours on a gorgeous spring evening here in Colorado Springs. This was a combination of standard (though long exposure) HDR shots with a DSLR, as well as a HDR shots taken with the drone. Thanks to Holly Quinn with Remax Real Estate Group of Colorado Springs for a great opportunity. Take a look at the LISTING for more!
