  • Video & Audio Production

    Doug Clark Creative / Capture Me Films

    (1 reviews)

    I offer an array of video and audio production services: script development, cinematography including (producing, directing, shooting and editing), and either a small or large crew depending on the completity and budget of the job. Most production jobs require more detailed consideration tin order to provided an accurate quote. As a rule of thumb please consider that on average every finished minute of edited footage requires an investment of $1,200.00. That includes equipment cost for filming, a small crew for filming, and editing. If you are an artist and you want a music video I would encourage you to share the song you are wanting to film when asking for a quote. If I hear a song and see a photo of an artist that I feel would make a great music video than that will affect my quote. Filmmakers like to work on creative projects that provide an opportunity to show off their skills. Our audio production includes radio commercials, jingles, original music, mixing and mastering. We can execute your ideas, or help you develop your concept.

  • Music Studio

    JVMT Music Studios

    Since 2005, Jay Vega has worked to make a name for himself as one of the sought-after producers in the Chicago hip-hop scene. Originally from the Lower East Side of New York, Jay Vega began his journey as a DJ in the early '90s with his brother DJ Chips (RIP). Soon after, he would take his talents beyond the tables and on to the mic. It was then that he also began to learn the ropes of production from his cousin, I-Cue. Jay Vega was a natural talent, and everyone knew it when he released his first song, "Back In The Day," produced by I-Cue. He put his life story in a song, and it proved that not only can he rap, but he was also an emotional and deep lyricist. Like many other artists, Jay Vega used music as an escape from his dangerous surroundings, as well as to keep his emotions grounded. He is so deeply connected to his music that everything he creates can change with his mood. To Jay Vega, sharing the music he creates is like giving a piece of his heart away. Having come a long way from running the streets of New York, today he sits as one of the regular producers for a roster of Chicago's finest artists, including Lungz, Astonish, The Primeridian, Rashid Hadee, Esohel, KING, GoonieJ, BdBusiness, itsQVC, Myles J, SevenSevenThree, KooLes, Jacorey, Michael lsael, Pugs Atomz, Mass, Chevy Kaang, Beatsmiths, Finch Borough$, DJ NandoMagic, Reap, and Outbreak. As part of the JVMT/GoodLife collaboration, Jay Vega works alongside the head engineer of GoodLife Studios, Chicago, Alex “PapiBeatz” Baez, where he handles the production. His experience and team have allowed him to take his music to a whole new level. Combining the gritty New York style with the ever-evolving Chicago music scene is one way he has and will continue to set himself apart.

  • Voice-Over Coaching & Demo Production

    Maya Kuper, Voice-over Coach

    What is a commercial voice-over demo? It is a demonstration of the very best work that you can do. Its purpose is to get an agent to say, "I can cast this person on a national TV campaign and make 10-20% of what they earn." It's a one-minute fireworks display that showcases you and your type. Your VO demo is supposed to sound like: a.) real commercials and b.) yourself. So, it's all about authenticity. The best way to prepare to record your demo—and to figure out if my production style is a good fit for you—is to take my Voiceover Gym Class. This is an affordable, 6-week group class for all experience levels. Because your demo is such an individual expression of your strengths, it's important that we work together—in a group class or in private coaching sessions—so I can learn who you are, and what you do best as a talent. When you have some coaching under your belt, and you're ready to start your demo, together we'll choose several pieces of commercial copy that are well suited to you and your type, and we'll schedule your first tracking session! The process works a little differently for each talent, but in general, we can expect to do 3 to 5 one-hour coaching and tracking sessions for $50/hour. Then, I'll need 8 hours (tops) of mixing and editing, also at $50/hour, and a flat fee of $525 for music licensing. All told, your demo will end up costing around $1,200, and the training you'll internalize, which you'll be able to apply to auditions and bookings for as long as you're doing voice-over, will be invaluable. I've been engineering and producing VO demos since 2004. My clients say it best: "Maya chose copy that was very well suited to my talents, and she provided a professional, stress-free atmosphere in which to record the best possible examples for my demo. Her coaching throughout the process was invaluable. I am extremely pleased with the end result." - Ben Muller "A great experience all the way around. Maya was able to tailor her feedback to my level of experience and skill and because of her, I cut my first demo, and am out auditioning for work right now. Maya has an excellent ear—her feedback is always spot-on. She would catch the nuances I was missing, and knew how to tell me what to change to get the result I was looking for." - Deborah Craft "Maya had the patience and know-how to coach me in the right direction. As a result of her guidance, I now have a professional-sounding demo that I can honestly say I am proud of." - Justin Marsh
