One World Productions creates high quality live action & animation for television commercials, web content, music videos, documentaries and business films

Our work spans from a seamless replication of gritty reality, set building with great detail, shooting in home locations to an absolutely stunning look at beautiful destinations. We are also known for our gorgeous food and tabletop product shooting.


Often we are handed idea concepts from agencies. However, If desired, we can provide creative development of fresh ideas, storyboards through final presentation working with wildly creative folks.

The project can be handled all the way through edit/post production, music, voice over and final mix for on-air masters, placing across the web and even shipping to stations.


We have full finishing Final Cut, AVID, After Effects editorial and animation suites in-house at our large sunny loft in Chicago's north side.


We have shot all over the United States and the world, including South Africa, throughout Europe, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Thailand, The Caribbean, Bahamas,South America, Canada & many other countries, We pride ourselves in traveling easily and in a precise manner, of course we are always pleased to shoot at home in Chicago for a welcome change. We have a phenomenal catalogue of locations in the Chicago area as well as across the country.


Much of the equipment we use travels with us or is shipped ahead to locations where equipment is not readily available. This makes One World Productions complete whether your project takes you to an exotic location or a sleepy small town. Whether we are shooting a macro tabletop food shot or a large set-up with crowd control and special effects, we adhere to a level of perfection and beauty that keeps our film looking fresh and timeless.


We have a long list of celebrities that we have shot including Ziggy Marley, Ron Howard, Shawn Johnson, Arnold Palmer, Richard Petty, Metallica, Jesse James, Isaac Hayes, Steve Nash, Dolly Parton, Tom Landry, Wayne Huizenga, Dwight Stephenson, Mike Ditka, Chris Everett, Walter Payton, Dan Patrick, Bob Villa and many more.


Our goal is to deliver the exact images and tone the creatives dreamed of and more. Plus we like to hear "You really made it easy" and we often do.
