Four Seasons Heating and Cooling: Trust | TV Spot

We were approached by Four Seasons Heating & Air Conditioning to create a 30 second TV spot supporting the “Trust” that comes with the services of the company. This video is broadcasted primarily for television, airing all across Chicagoland tv networks.

Google | Connecting People and Places

We produced this video to showcase the ease and convenience of using the Google Search Engine and Google Maps platform to connect people with local businesses and their network.

Roof on the Wit | Chicago Fire Fashion Show

This collaboration resulted in us producing a series of 6 recap videos for theWit Hotel. Each shoot had a different theme and overall energy, but the goal was the same...to properly showcase how inviting their events were! From the start of the project, we developed a great working relationship with their marketing team and we were able to recommend our creative direction to advance the reach of their videos.

Ensoul Music | Idiopan Commercial

This lifestyle commercial was centered around the Idiopan, a tunable steel tongue drum. The video aimed to showcase the different types of experiences this instrument can bring to a social setting as well as for work and leisure. The commercial was shot over the course of 3 months, at 3 different locations with 3 main actors and over 20 extras.

2019 JV Studios Cinema Reel

Every year we edit together our favorite shots throughout the year and put it into one video to showcase our style and diversity as a video production company.

Flight Club | Social Darts

We captured an event recap of the grand opening for a Chicago entertainment venue featuring social darts with digital scoring, casual bites & a full bar.
