If social media were a planet, then influencers would be its primary inhabitants. Though there are some key differences between influencers and traditional entrepreneurs, they have much in common when it comes to driving the economy. So much so that influencers are often referred to as the ‘modern entrepreneurs’. Among this new-age internet, sensations are Sacred Thomas, whose outstanding video production craft has helped him climb the ladder of success at a young age.
As a young entrepreneur with little to no knowledge of cinematic and professional video production, Sacred Thomas has more than beaten the odds of learning the craft from YouTube and getting started with his own video production agency, Sacred Shot Media. He’s an early Instagram adopter and has worked for almost a decade to perfect his craft as a content creator. Today, his Instagram and TikTok following stands at 106K and 267K respectively – a number that’s quickly gaining pace.
Thomas hails from Miami, Florida, and puts most of his success down to his supportive parents, actor Philip Michael Thomas and model Kassandra Thomas. “We were never taught to limit our thinking,” says Thomas, whose parents always rooted for him to follow his dreams and passions. “Hard work can help achieve anything that you put your mind to.”
Growing up, Thomas was the go-to person for his friends and family who would get their workout videos, recap videos, and travel trips filmed by the aspiring videographer. It wasn’t until college that his deep-rooted love for creating visuals reignited and he decided to make a career out of his passion. The young entrepreneur self-assessed for a long time before shifting from running a stable 7-year-old party bus business that he started during college, to a video production company and digital agency.
Not knowing how to start professional videography, Thomas took some lessons from YouTube, bought a camera, and got started. Hence, Sacred Shot Media was born as a result of a dream-chasing struggle. Driven by the passion to turn creative ideas into engaging and memorable videos, the company specializes in filming event videos, wedding shoots, documentaries, commercials, and whatnot. The founder’s social media presence has also had a big part in making the video agency stand out in the crowd.
Thomas has got a lot more on his hands than just being a videographer. His good looks and charming personality have landed him some big modeling gigs. Recently, he has both filmed and walked the New York Fashion Week for the designer Chainguardians. Earlier, he also served as an Armani Beauty partner at the launch of the luxury brand’s latest Acqua di Gio fragrance drop.
The young entrepreneur is also very active on Instagram and TikTok, sharing motivational quotes and inspirational posts from some of the most beautiful places he visits. He is all the more committed to creating quality content that not only gets results but also inspires and motivates the masses.
Through Sacred Shot Media, Thomas aims to tell stories and be innovative in a crowded media landscape. The videographer believes that it’s never been more important to make emotive connections between videos and their audiences.
