360 Media Ventures has been a pioneer in content marketing and production since boldly planting its roots in Portland, Maine in 2006. In the early years, the company worked with cutting edge brands like Jeep, Red Bull and GoPro on projects that ushered in the change of brands from advertisers and sponsors to content creators and “owners” of their media and brand communications. 360MV was also involved in the marketing and media production of major adventure events such as the RAID Adventure Race World Championships based in France and the SCORE Baja 1000 in Mexico.
360MV launched and Executive Produced a first-of-its-kind national television series with NBC Sports Ventures, “World of Adventure”, a series that ran for over 15 years and included 100 television episodes and countless digital features. The Series was a multiple time Emmy nominee and winner while airing on NBC and NBC Sports Network, and later aired on Outside TV’s digital streaming platforms.
In 2012, 360MV sold World of Adventure to resort and entertainment company Powdr Corp. In the years that followed, as a production partner of Powdr, 360MV produced numerous resort themed content pieces for partners ranging from USASA to 10 Barrel Brewing to Subaru of America.
Throughout the years, 360MV has traveled the world documenting cultural and sporting events, expeditions and adventure destinations. International trips have included Argentina, New Zealand, Iceland, Mexico, the Faroe Islands, Madeira, Canada, the Azores, Dominica, Barbados, the Bahamas, France, and French Polynesia (Tahiti & the Marquesas Islands). However, for 360MV, there is no place like home in Maine, where the company has done extensive work for organizations such as Maine Outdoor Brands and Maine Public Lands.
Today 360MV remains true to its core mission from inception- developing, producing and delivering high level content for brands, tourism bureaus, rights owners, organizations, and events. We are constantly seeking new and innovative ways to reach, inspire and engage audiences on behalf of our clients.
360MV is on the forefront of several production technologies and unique service offerings including aerial cinematography, remote studio productions, and livestreaming. Recent examples include livestreaming a series of global meetings and presentations during the covid-19 pandemic for one of Maine’s most successful companies- IDEXX Laboratories.
360MV is led by Executive Producer Rufus Frost, who founded the company in 2006.
