A Chicago Video Production Company- Demo Duck
Chicago Video Production Company

A video production agency in Chicago

Demo Duck has had a few different offices in the past six years, from a small kitchen, to a shared workspace, and now a sprawling loft in West Town with our own video production studio. While the layouts have varied, one thing they’ve all had in common is a Chicago zip code.

Although we work with clients across the globe, our roots are here, and our relationships with some of Chicago’s groundbreaking companies have only flourished with time. We’ve grown right alongside a lot of these businesses and it’s been a joy to be their long-term Chicago video production company of choice. So, how can we share your message with the world?

The benefits of a Chicago video production partner

A phone call is great, but we’re big believers in a firm handshake. As a Chicago-based video production agency, we relish the opportunity to meet clients in person. Sharing a city makes it easier to share ideas (and a Lyft). Just say the word, and we’ll gladly meet you for a casual sit-down at Dark Matter Coffee.

Come into our office to see where the magic happens and meet our whole team face-to-face. Outside of operating in the same time zone, we also find it easier to get a finger on the pulse of what’s developing with our local video partners and keep an ear out for the scuttlebutt around town.

Staying flexible in the windy city

Whether it’s an animated explainer video or a live action thought leadership piece, our ability to create videos across an array of styles allows us to deliver for our Chicago partners. Selecting a local live-action video agency will undoubtedly help keep production costs low but can also help will any necessary location scouting or pickups. Meanwhile, walking clients through our animated concepts or storyboards in-person help make our creative vision is crystal clear to our clients.

There are a lot of great video production companies in Chicago but our team is comprised of local producers and creatives with a proven track record to get you a video that’s effective, engaging and helps make you the talk (and toast) of the town.
