  • VEccBrowne Productions Mission Statement

    Our mission is to bring members of the community to the table, to discuss important issues

    Jessica Vecchione

    Owner, Vecc Videography, Hamden NY

    We can't know and see everything that happens in our communities. We make documentaries to bring subjects to light; to help people better understand what's happening; to give them tools that help them form opinions. Documentaries are "ice-breakers" so that interested community members can come to the table, broach a discussion, and find solutions to problems.

    Lillian Browne

    Investigative Reporter, Delaware County NY

    Everyone has a story and there is far more to those stories than just presenting the facts. People - and their connection to place – their community – coupled with the struggles they face in their day to day lives, are the real story. Whether maneuvering their way through the criminal justice system or working to right the wrongs of perceived injustices, everyone has a different angle and different experience. We aim to tell these stories in a way that stimulates solution based conversations and challenges preconceived perceptions.
