Central Standard Production is a boutique, full-service production company based in beautiful Birmingham, Alabama.
Our wheelhouse is making compelling still and motion images, often combining the two in one project, which maximizes the visual consistency of the project and provides economies of scale.
We work with advertising agencies, brand consultants, and often partner with brands directly, while respecting established agency/consultant relationships.
We're experts who are easy to work with. We can take your project from idea to completion leveraging our network of trusted crew members and vendors who we have vetted over the past 15+ years. This allows you to relax in the confidence that the details have been thought through and buttoned up.
My origin story may not be as compelling as Wolverine or Flash (I know my son wishes it were), but it's what I have, so here's how we've gotten to where we are.
When I started out as a photographer, I didn't know what I didn't know! Thanks to the economic disaster of 2008 and the disruptive technology of the Canon 5D Mark II, I added Director and Cinematographer to the long list of jobs I've had in my career. Wanting to serve my clients with the utmost professionalism, I partnered with a friend to start a full service production company. After a few years doing great work, we amicably chose to take different paths.
Through years of figuring out how to make a shoot run smoothly and capture great stories and moments through the lens, we looked up and realized that we actually know what we’re doing. While remaining life-long students of our craft, we feel confident we've come up with something special. Our desire for hospitality on set, couple with our standard of excellence both in the process and the product, will ensure that you get something even better than what you saw in your head.
We leverage our close, professional relationships with super-talented artisans to have the best of the best people on our team for any given project and anywhere in the world. At any point we can crew up for any size production.
Whether it be in The Southern US, South Africa, or anywhere in between, let's get together and make something awesome.
