Boston Video Production and Studio

In 2003, Charles River Media Group (CRMG) was conceived of by Don Schechter as an organization that would foster the independent film and video community of Boston and bring top-level talent together in order to attract more corporate work to the community as well as increase the overall quality of productions in the area.

CRMG’s first multi-year endeavor was the creation of hundreds of short informational videos for on topics ranging from computer software to cooking. These videos have garnered millions of worldwide views and took place during the infancy of digital video on the web. It was this early contract that allowed Charles River Media Group to quickly grow. CRMG’s offices were first located in Revere, MA and later Brookline, MA. A studio was built in Newton Center where CRMG currently maintained offices along with a black-box production studio. In 2019, CRMG moved to 73 TV Place in Needham, MA

Over time, CRMG’s network matured to include a wide variety of producers, directors of photography, editors, colorists, gaffers, grips, audio and live stream engineers, makeup artists, animators, photographers, and voice artists.

CRMG has worked with agencies such as Weber Shandwick, Mullen & Co., Dixon Davis Media, and CTP Boston, as well as for political campaigns and governmental organizations including Menino for Mayor, Khazei for Senate, Congressman Delahunt’s Office, The Massachusetts School Building Authority, and Congressman Barney Frank. CRMG’s work has been seen on many television programs and network including NBC, ESPN, and NHK.

Whether it’s a corporate or non-profit profile or communication, television commercial production or placement on a network, live-streaming event, performance, music video, documentary, photography, studio rental, or crew assistance that you are looking for, please get in touch.
