A little history, what we use, and compatibility...
Oak Park Studios began as a voiceover facility in 2008, producing work for organizations and companies across the US. In 2014, we began offering mixed-media production for local organizations, including promotional videos and managing front-of-house A/V for events.
Today, Oak Park Studios provides a variety of media solutions to companies and organizations large and small. We create television commercials, video-for-web, video-for-kiosk, mixed media, and radio commercials. Call or email to see how we can help take your upcoming campaign to the next level.
Sometimes, we're part of a broader team of media professionals working together on a large project. When that happens, the first question we're asked is what type of equipment we use and how well it will match the images coming from others working on the project.
