Who we are

We're a production company in the suburbs of Chicago who are passionate about storytelling.  We offer full service video, photo, and creative direction for clients who don't have internal resources but still need top quality content.  We deliver the same level of service as a department within your company but without the overhead.

Story


It's more than a bunch of fancy pictures edited together.  It's about finding a cohesive story to tell your audience, so that they want to tell their friends.

Story


It's more than a bunch of fancy pictures edited together.  It's about finding a cohesive story to tell your audience, so that they want to tell their friends.

We specialize in storytelling.  It's what we're most passionate about.  And it's the best way to connect with your audience.  They need to have an emotional connection with your brand.  Anyone can parade a bunch of pretty pictures in front of a consumer, but it's the brands that connect with them on a meaningful level that are successful.  It's those brands that the consumer goes out and evangelizes for.  We're here to help you tell those stories and make your audience want to go out and tell their friends about what who you are and what you just shared with them.

Every story, and every project needs to be told in its own way.  There's not one approach for all videos.  So before we start a project, we examine what needs to be done to tell the story.

We do that in a few key ways...  First, we are your partner.  And that's not just something we say.  If you call at 5p on a Friday you get someone on the phone who can execute what you need done.  We function like a department within your company, we just happen to sit in a different building.  Secondly, we offer what you need.  Whether all you have is an idea and you need us to flush it out for you or you have handled the pre-production and you need someone to execute.  And third, we scale for your needs.  When you hire us you're not paying for a creative director or copywriter to work on other client's projects.  Our network of leaders in the creative field makes sure we can tailor the team working on your project to what it needs.  Whether that's one person doing motion graphics or 20 people filming all around the country.

VIDEO SERVICES

We have been creating content for years.  We're able to take your idea from a spark through final export.  Or work with your internal team to execute their ideas.  We've collaborated with some big brands and agencies to deliver engaging content to their consumers.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Everyone has a camera these days, but not everyone has photographed in 14 countries and countless cities around the world.  You need to trust that your photography projects will be executed on time and on budget, and that's what we provide our clients.

CREATIVE DiRECTION 

Whether you don't have a creative team in house, or they're just bogged down on other projects we're here to help.  We can take your idea and do concepting, copywriting, storyboarding, and full execution to help speed your project from idea to finished piece.
