I’m Eric Temple, the proud owner of Highway 89 Media.

I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.

I began working as a video producer with the PBS station in Phoenix, Arizona, in 1978. Over the next seventeen years, I progressed to larger and larger TV stations across the country. However, my lifelong goal was always to combine creative film making with innovative marketing, so after learning the ropes, I founded my first video company, Canyon Productions, in 1992.

After two successful decades of running my enterprise in Washington, I decided to up stakes and move to Utah in 2011. I continued crafting captivating productions under a catchy new banner that represented my new location. 

My relocation coincided with a paradigm shift within the industry, as the introduction of smartphones, encouraged companies to use online platforms to communicate with their audience. I’ve stayed relevant by adapting to the latest styles and techniques that design videos for mobile viewing.

I have the tools to handle any size of production and I only hire technicians and specialists that have the acumen to assist me in conceptualizing award-winning videos.

The favorite part of creating videos for various genres is that I get to immerse myself in my clients’ world for a considerable period. It allows me to learn about new scientific advances, medical breakthroughs, and historical events.

As for running my enterprise, I love being the boss and making the best use of my forty years of experience to serve clients by paying close attention to detail. I’m also completely transparent with clients so that they know what to expect at every stage of production.

The budget never comes as a surprise as I believe in providing value for money, and it’s rewarding to see a client’s happy reactions after the finished product gets presented. I think my philosophy has attributed to my success and earned me recognition from prestigious institutions.

I’ve even had the pleasure of being commissioned to produce dozens of videos for the Utah Aviation Hall of Fame at the Aerospace Museum at Hill Air Force Base. Meeting family members of heroic veterans and listening to them narrate stories, has been memorable and being able to document these memories has been extremely rewarding.

When I am not producing videos, I love collecting western art, taking photographs, and traveling to discover new places. I’m also firmly in favor of protecting the environment and have completed many projects to promote this endeavor.

I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
