    (5 reviews)

    My name is Warwick. I have over 15 years of experience as a producer, cinematographer and editor. I have shot music videos, television shows, commercials, and film. My clients ranged from the Chicago Board of Education, Chicago Symphony Orchestras, McDonald's, and Fox Sports. My experience in editing range in the same areas including three reality TV series, two in Chicago and one in Marion, Indiana. I started out as a supervising editor for a weekly show, "The Celeste Show" on ABC Television and for HGTV's (House and Garden Television) TV show, "New Spaces." You are looking for an experienced "scrapper," one who can pull rabbits out of a hat, even if the rabbit or hat wasn't given. This individual has experience in production and post. He shoots one day and edits the next. This individual also creates the 3D animation title open, if they are needed by the client. The advantage of hiring an individual with a broad knowledge base are the following: * First, you are getting a producer/cameraman, with a creative editor's eye * Second, his diverse experience of software knowledge ranges from Avid to Final Cut * Third, you are receiving an individual who isn't afraid of working 10 to 12 hours a day to meet the clients' deadline needs. Give a call, if you have any questions. My rate runs between $40 - $100 per hour, depending on the types of equipment you need for your shoot.

  • Pothole Photography

    I am a Chicago based photographer, videographer and photo/video editor. My love affair with pictures and how they could be transformed on a computer began while I was on the high school yearbook staff. That passion would continue into college, graphic design and my adult life. For as long as I can remember, movies have mesmerized me and even as a kid, I was interested in the technical aspect of film. From 11 years old, I spent every summer making spy thrillers with the neighborhood kids and stop motion comedies with my action figures. Whatever your idea, event or need may be, I can help make it a reality. I’m not new to this medium, but since I’m so new to Thumbtack, I’ll set my prices very low.

  • Ben Chandler: Still & Moving Pictures

    I am a Chicago-based videographer, editor, and photographer specializing in work with local artists and musicians. I create music videos and documentaries, document performances and events, and take portraits for both promotional material and personal purposes. I find it most satisfying to work and collaborate with those who have a passion for what they are creating. I also specialize in what I have termed a "live photo booth". I will set up a seamless background and lights in a location of your designation. I take studio-quality portraits of guests at their request throughout the entire event. Photos are then periodically uploaded into a running random slideshow and projected on a wall or screen, providing (near) instant gratification for the attendees. After the event, I'll upload the photos to my website where they can be downloaded by guests - free of charge - the next day. This is a blast for wedding receptions, art gallery parties, corporate events, fundraisers, reunions, orientations, or any large party. Feel free to contact me to discuss rates, availability, or for more information. Phone and email are best, but I'll accept messages via morse code, smoke signals, semaphore or carrier pigeon as well.

  • MysticMedia

    We're a production company that features commercials, music, and videos. Anthony Aguilera is a 30-year Chicago veteran of media mastery. Starting from his early years as a Chicago director editor, Mr. Aguilera has been breaking new boundaries since 1979. An early pioneer in music video work, his work has won awards, as well as an editor of pre-MTV works, like "Video Child", which has won multiple awards (Athens Ohio Film fest), Chicago (both Al Piemonte (car dealer)), and the now legendary "Video King" commercials, "Building the Perfect Beast", a music video consisting of Don Henley's soundtrack and NASA, and a public domain footage where he attacked President Reagan's "Star Wars" defense system (as seen on Image Union) with a technique known as speed cutting (1 image every 1/2 second (he defied critics)), a common technique. In early special effects, he was the first to show us what the inside of a rolling video cube looked like long before the ease of digital effects. A proponent of "Hi-8 Video" in a time of VHS, he predicted the eventual on-set digital media, replacing the two separate realms of film and video -- all these pre-internet! His groundbreaking projects have always been considered ahead of the curve. Even with his vast expertise in traditional film, he also was part of the first wave of HDDV as a theatre-quality experience (suspended animation rel. 2000 Director John Hancock). He had also worked on the original "interactive arcade games" from Williams Electronics in 1984. As a writer, he has been a published poet (Stray Bullets (Tia Chucha Press)) and his poem "Love Song". The poetic play "Obras" brought together the unknown poets (Luis Rodriquez) on the stage as actors. He has performed as a poet in venues, such as Peacefest Chicago and Hemingway-fest (Oak Park). He's even at the booksellers' row! He was part of the first wave of western poets in Eastern Germany (Urban Metaphors), which toured East Berlin and Erfert, Germany in 1991. As a poet/writer, his play, "Urban Metaphors", was even included in Rhino Fest. He has produced children's shows, as well as written commercial works.
