Cinematic Story Telling - Epic Results

The best story always wins!

Why does USC, home to one of the world’s finest cinema schools, repeatedly hire Art Simon Productions to tell its cinematic stories?

And of all the production companies out there, why should you choose us? Especially in an age when iPhones make everyone amateur videographers?

Because true documentary storytelling means more than shooting footage. It’s about more than professional lighting, state-of-the-art equipment and precise editing.

It’s about understanding every aspect of your organization— and communicating your message in vivid, dramatic terms. It’s about building trust with your subjects to get the real story, then framing the story to reach and hit those emotional chords in your audience’s hearts. That’s what turns a big, mean biker into a little pile of mush, ready to use his Saturday night to collect blankets for orphans.

"It was a pleasure working with Art Simon. He understood the type of film we needed and led us through the process in a very professional manner. The time he took to understand the nature of our program and his creative ideas regarding the way to best present our efforts were critical to producing such an excellent film."

How did we help USC get
a $10 million donation?

Sidney Harman, whose achievements include founding Harman International Industries and publishing Newsweek, had just made a gift to help launch the Sidney Harman Academy for Polymathic Study at USC. Sadly, he passed away shortly afterward, leaving the academy’s future in jeopardy.

So USC once again turned to Art Simon Productions to tell this important story. Our film was instrumental in winning the hearts and minds needed to secure a $10 million endowment ensuring that the academy will enrich the lives of USC students and faculty for decades to come.

"The Harman video was a HUGE hit. The president loved it and more importantly, the family loved it."
