Production Services - Marketing Support, Project Management and Design

Mission Statement

Having spent many years at one of the leading Detroit production houses, from the most entry level position up to Director/Director of Photography, I learned how integrated effort, and following a smart, creative plan, creates an environment that produces success.
Client requests, outside of what I could provide within the company, led me to establish my own group.
Through creative exploration, combined with intelligent planning and a team of top professionals, we fully support each client and project. Completely scalable, from single service to complete marketing support, never cookie cutter.

Let us put our years of creative expertise, and production services, to work for you on your next project. Creative to Delivery, All Media-Digital to Film, Motion or Still, all services scaled and fit to the individual needs of the project.

Senior Content Producer, VCE

When the opportunity came for me to produce a demo video for my concept of a home improvement television show for women, there was no one else I trusted with my vision. The “Do It Yourself, Girl!” demo turned out better than I imagined!!! He even created original theme music for it!!! I am so proud of our project; I say OUR project because even though it’s my show, it wouldn’t have been half of what it is without Jim.”

Sonja Crosby

‘Do It Yourself Girl’, Producer/Actor

“I met Jim Mencotti during a project that he was doing for a client of mine. The way he handled his work made a good impression on me. Jim’s many talents turned out to be just what somebody like me needed. We spent one very full and very productive day visiting several of my client’s homes where he and his assistant were able to capture some of my work like only pros could. I was able to hire one guy to handle building me a very functional website from start to finish. The site began paying for itself almost immediately and hiring Jim has certainly been the smartest marketing decision that I’ve made to date.”

And just as one would expect, he has assembled a like-minded team of specialists whose talents and personal manner lend an air of absolute professionalism to every project, earning for them the respect of the on-camera talent, the client and everyone else involved – including live audiences. I would recommend Jim Mencotti, without hesitation, for any project he would be ready to accept.”

Bio

Jim Mencotti, group leader, graduate of Oakland University and the Kodak Cinematographers School. In the production business since my college graduation. Had the honor of working for a couple decades at GTN, when it was one of the top production houses in the Midwest.
Started my own business when the needs of my clients outgrew the services I could provide through GTN.
Many other interests are part of my experience both professionally and on the hobby level. Being a lifelong musician, I carry that on with the group Jam-Art, gigging, writing and recording. Martial Arts captured my interest as a teenager and I have practice since then, becoming a disciple of Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan. Animals and the outdoors are strong interests, keeping dogs, cats and aquariums, and at times, working professionally in the aquarium business with clients such as the Detroit Zoo and Belle Ilse Aquarium.
I am happily married to Patti. We have a son, James.
