MY BUSINESS - MEDIA MECHANIX

I formed this production company with my friend, partner and longtime collaborator Paul Brokaw back in 1985. Originally we were part of the company called SOUNDSMITH.

Sometime around 2004 we realized that to be an effective communicator in this brave new world of the 21st Century,  we had to jump into the VIDEO FOR BUSINESS arena with both feet...which we did...

shooting at Gabreski Airport

and we became MEDIA MECHANIX.

We think of ourselves as a Production Boutique,  meaning that we are a small firm and the owners of the firm are actually the people who service the clients directly by recording, writing, composing, shooting video, editing and producing the various media we work with.

There are those times, depending on the scope of a project, when we will subcontract outside talent to assist us in creating the work.  From a vocalist or musician...to an actor or writer...a modeling agency or even a drone operator...!  We create the appropriate "team" necessary to execute the project's creative vision.  Whatever it takes to get things done successfully.
