How did it all start?

About the owner, Jason Burks

 

Our fearless leader, Jason Burks, found his love for film while shooting a short video overseas with a consumer camera 21 years ago.  This project stimulated him to pursue more ways to express ideas through the film medium and continue educating himself in filmmaking.  Treating every project with a high attention to detail, originality, and creativity, his small local projects soon turned into a full time job.  He began his production company full swing in 2002.  Jason's focus has been on cinematography and making things look beautiful and interesting through lighting, which has kept him in high demand as a Writer, Director, and Director of Photography.  He has shot over 1500 TV commercials both regional and national, dozens of music videos, short films, feature films, documentaries, and product videos.  His projects have taken him to all 50 states in the US and 6 different continents.  From South Africa, Japan, and Hungary to Guatemala, the Philippines, and Canada, Jason has enjoyed opportunities in different cultures and settings to shoot scenes and people in interesting ways.  Jason's goal for the future is to continue working with other creative individuals on feature films, documentaries, commercials, and music videos; and to push the limits of lighting, camera movement, and production design.  His passion has been and always will be telling stories that move people through film

 


Embellishing the emotions of a single moment strong enough, and real enough, to change a viewers perspective on their everyday reality has been my pursuit my entire life thus far. I live my life with a pencil in one hand and a camera in the other and I couldn’t be happier.
