About Prairie Nation Creative, LLC
Michael Schwarz, Owner and Lead Videographer was “born and bred” in Oklahoma and had dreams of working in the film industry. After graduating he moved to Conway, Arkansas to obtain his degree in Digital Filmmaking/Mass Communications from the University of Central Arkansas. As most do in the film industry, he moved to Los Angeles for the next 4 years working for a company that specialized in Personal Injury Videos including Settlement Documentaries, Day-in-the-life and Wrongful Death Video Portraits.
He grew to enjoy this field and being able to provide clients with something to further help their cases and accurately portray their struggles. He took what he had learned and those talents and moved back to Oklahoma with the intention of starting his own company to provide video litigation services and more to a relatively untapped market in the Midwest and further.
Our videos and reputation have a proven track record. Michael has utilized his talent for all things film to work on numerous different projects in over 20+ states and 10 countries to date. Some of these include Mexico, Canada, Australia, Singapore, South Africa, France, Scotland and Armenia. One of his proudest accomplishments was completing a large-scale assignment in Europe interviewing families who lost loved ones in the Boeing 747 Max crashes in 2019.
With over 9 years of experience as a documentary film producer, videographer/photographer, and drone operator, Michaels passion is providing the highest quality service of doing what he loves at a reasonable price. Prairie Nation Creatives’ main goal is to be able to provide any and all services at a price that is feasible for big and small companies, near and far.
Why Impact Videos are Important
Money isn’t everything but it helps your client and loved ones heal from their loss. There is no better way to convey your client’s pain and loss than by capturing it on video to show the damages suffered by your client and their families. It is not practical to invite the defense to your client’s house at 5 or 6 in the morning to observe their daily struggles from dawn to bed.
That’s why it is increasingly popular and necessary to use powerful and effective Day-in-the life, Settlement Documentary and Wrongful Death Portrait videos. These Impact Videos are carefully produced to showcase a high quality and comprehensive TV/News/60 minutes style documentary to portray your case through the eyes of your clients, friends and family members.
It’s no secret that Personal Injury attorneys handling automobile accidents, habitability, wrongful deaths, medical malpractice, etc. have used videos for their cases for years, but until now, most have only used video presentations on cases valued at $500,000 or more because of the production expense. Out of state companies charge a premium because of travel expenses and overhead.
I work with you to design a video to be utilized on ANY size case ($20 Million or $50,000) and any type of case (Auto Accidents, TBI, Wrongful Death, Burn Victims, TBI, Sexual Harassment, etc.). There is no more effective way to demonstrate damages, liability, loss of income and the legal energy and emotion you will bring to trial. I have witnessed videos multiply case values by 5x or result in a 7-figure settlement instead of the 6-figure settlement originally offered before the video was shown to the defense.
In my time working in this field, I have interviewed over 300 families, doctors, experts, Etc. and put together over 100 legal documentaries that helped families get the money they deserved. In addition, I pride myself in taking the added time/effort to ensure families are treated with respect and dignity, which helps ease them through the filming process. I would like a chance to show your firm how these videos can help multiply the value of your cases!

Need to Know
At what stage in my case should I order a video?
Any stage! It’s never too late to incorporate these services into your trial preparation. But, from my experience, the earlier the better. Sending a video with your demand letter shows you are a serious advocate for your client from the “get go”. You can also show video in your mediation. If you decide later you need edits or changes. I can edit your video as your case moves towards trial or settlement.
Can your footage be subpoenaed?
Yes, but only the Day-in-the-Life footage. The interviews with families and everything else I produce has been considered work product by courts. This is why when I film Day-in-the-life footage, I record nothing but their daily routines. In the raw footage, you will never hear me talking to your client or if they start to talk to me, I immediately stop recording. Out of the 300 videos I produced or edited, only one was subpoenaed for the raw footage. It’s rare, but I treat every project with care, just in case a subpoena issues.
