About 10 years ago Ryan Buttie and Bryan Roberts, who grew up near each other in Cumberland, started shooting videos for weddings and businesses.
After working together for several years in Massachusetts, the duo decided to move their efforts back to Rhode Island. Earlier this year they launched Luminous LLC, a creative agency in Providence that offers design, marketing and video-production services.
“We’re young, eager and we have a strong passion for this,” Buttie said.
The company, which opened offices on South Main Street next to Cable Car Cinema, has already done recent work for the R.I. School of Design, Hey Rhody Magazine, WBRU, R.I. Lottery, Thayer Street District, Prospect Park and others.
Buttie would like to see the company grow to work closely with Rhode Island companies.
“We’ve worked with almost every industry … that would ever need a video,” Buttie added. •
