Eric Stracke

Partner

Eric is a content creative by day, and referees a wild pack of children by night. He holds a B.S. in Digital Film and Video Production from the Art Institute of California, San Francisco, and has continued to work in the video production industry ever since. He finds great satisfaction in the creative process of producing a video from concept to completion. His free time is filled with his three children and trying to convince them not to hurt themselves or each other. He enjoys sharing his hobbies with his family, including playing the ukulele, wakeboarding, and camping.

Matt Townley

Partner

Matt has more than fifteen years of experience in the media and production industry. Having worked his way through a wide range of roles, he has a unique ability to bridge the gap between the highly technical and creative aspects of production. Matt holds a B.S. in Information Technology and Multimedia Visual Communication. He and his wife have two spirited sons and two even more spirited dogs. They enjoy tackling do-it-yourself projects, traveling, and exploring new places in search of delicious food, locally made beer and wine, and great beaches.

Nelson Nunez

Producer & Senior Editor

Nelson has been producing and editing since the days of VHS tape (remember those things?). It has grown from a hobby, to a passion, to a profession. His love for puzzle-solving and storytelling take hold when he gets to craft a new story, frame by frame. Nelson holds a B.S. in Television, Film, and New Media. When he’s not making magic happen on set or in the edit cave, he likes to teach his son to breakdance, hold his newborn daughter in his arms, and take his wife on spontaneous food adventures!

Kyle Gustafson

Senior Motion Graphics Artist & Editor

Kyle is an experienced editor and designer with a passion for cinema. Oregon raised, California trained; Kyle graduated from The Art Institute of California—San Francisco with his B.S. in Digital Film and Video Production. When he’s not in the editing suite, Kyle loves to build up his Star Wars toy collection, cook new recipes, and go on walks with his wife and their dog. Kyle believes that if you love what you’re doing, you’ll never have to work a day in your life. His love for life is reflected in his work and friendships, making him a great asset to have on projects.

Lydia Shepherd

Matt Breetzke

Student Intern

Matt, a High School Senior, is a newbie to the video production scene, but he’s learning the ropes quickly. He’s eager to help out and soak up as much knowledge as possible along the way. Matt has always been a creator and a go-getter that’s ready for a challenge, even if it’s loading the van. In his spare time, Matt loves to whip out the old sketchbook and start scheming his next project and is always ready to throw down in a game of Magic.
