Making videos and making a difference


In the growing field of video production, J. Dolan Barry is an expert.

Barry, a Shrewsbury resident, has been working in the field of videography for more than 20 years and started his own company, Barry Video Productions, in 1993. He has won awards for videos he's produced in the past, and frequently creates pieces for non-profit and charitable organizations.

He does two major productions each year pro bono, including one he did recently for the Greater Worcester Habitat for Humanity. Commercially, his work can run between $15,000 and $25,000 for a 10-minute video.

“At the end of the day, I feel I’m getting paid to make a difference in someone’s life,” Barry told the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester recently. “I’m lucky.”
