Dwaine Scott and Patrick Bryant founded Go To Team in October 1997. They felt that there was a shortage of good organized camera crews in the smaller markets outside Atlanta. With 10 years of television broadcasting experience they created Go To Team to fill this niche in the Southeast video crew market. Their goal was to provide high quality video production crews and services in local markets throughout the southeast. So they positioned the corporate office in Charleston, SC while Director of Photography Dwaine Scott remained centrally based out of Columbia, SC. This gave them an advantage of reaching several mid-sized cities.
By simply offering the highest standard in quality equipment and following their motto “Do Whatever It Takes,” Go To Team quickly gained the attention of national networks and clients. A turning point came after being apart of the Monica Lewinsky Story; they knew it was time to add on to their staff.
Go To Team purchased several sets of identical gear and set out to offer the same quality in multiple markets. By positioning their staff cameramen in other cities, Go To Team could offer camera crews in different local markets while maintaining only one main office.
Clients became repeat customers because they only had to make one call, providing them access to a variety of cameraman’s schedules, the ability to benefit from local resources and confidence that they will be met on location with the same gear and professional attitude from each of our video crews.
The future: Go To Team remains focused on the ultimate goal – continue to provide high-end clients with the best video quality and top-notch staff crews in the US.
