Event Video Production – Are you hiring a video team to capture your upcoming events or conferences? Traditional solutions often won’t cut it!

Contact us today, and we’ll show you how we can revolutionize your events with our immersive live streaming formats. We mainly focus on corporate events such as company meetings and corporate galas. We can help you with everything from covering a press conference or product launch to making an event highlights video or producing a video that tells the story of your company and what makes it unique. If you’re new to the world of corporate video productions, we can help you decide what kind of business videos are best for your needs and goals. A professionally produced video can do wonders for your business and potentially reach a far wider audience than any other form of marketing material, as it can be shared across all social media platforms as well as on your website. In addition to event videos and virtual event coverage, we also handle a wide variety of other corporate videos – such as testimonial videos and other types of video content that you can use on your website and social media accounts.

Drone and Aerial Photography Services

Looking for an innovative way to add visual interest to your video productions? Drone footage may be the way to bring your vision to life.

Camera OperatorProduction Assistant
"Chicago Camera Crew and Video Production Services I am a DP, Camera Operator, and Colorist in Chicago. I’ve worked on shorts, feature films, TV productions, and numerous commercial productions. My passion and skill set is in the image management pipeline from beginning to end. I thrive in environments where I can help execute a comprehensive and well-thought-out workflow, whether I’m working on set to achieve exposures that take into account the subsequent steps of the dailies/color grading pipeline, or as a Colorist creating dailies or bringing together the creative photographic decisions into a cohesive and finely tuned finished product. My formal education is in philosophy and literary theory, and all of my work is done out of a passion for the art of story telling and a belief that telling powerful stories is some of the most important work we can do. My background in large-format darkroom photography led to a love for and understanding of the modern digital workflow and the image management potential it has if used thoughtfully and consistently. I am willing to travel, and I own the following equipment, Camera and lenses: Sony FS7, adapters for Canon and Nikon, Sigma 18-35mm, Rokinon 50mm cinema prime, Rokinon 80mm cinema prime.…"
