“I got into video production in high school in a mass communications class that I took for three years,” Diehl said. “I got really into music videos, which led me to study communication in college and continue in promotional video production,” he said.
Diehl said that, in his work, he tries “to make every video different and unique, and to avoid cliché or overused visuals. There is so much video content people see every day; you need to make something that will stand out and catch a viewer’s attention, so I try to do that with everything I’m creating, no matter what the content may be.
