Commercial and Video Production

Welcome to Chimaeric Motion Pictures, a not-so-average video production company proudly based in Columbia, MO. We’re a creative collective of classically trained filmmakers working together to craft compelling video content for our clients. We understand the balance needed to combine sight and sound into a finished video production that connects with your intended audience.

Our company originated as the internal video production team of an ad agency. Our history of working side-by-side with creatives in other marketing mediums gives us the unique insight and experience of integrating video productions into multi-dimensional ad campaigns. This marriage of big picture marketing strategy and narrative, cinematic storytelling fuels all our video productions.

Every company has a story to tell. With the rise of online social networks, companies now have the ability to connect directly with potential customers in a more intimate way. That shift to constant digital communication has also created more well-informed and savvy consumers. They don’t just want to know what you do; they want to know why you do it and why it should matter to them.

This is where we come in. We make video productions that are more than just pretty pictures and sound bites cut to music. We dig deep into your brand story to discover what makes your voice unique, then transform that into impactful motion picture content tailored to your audience and your distribution platforms. We deliver your message in a way that connects hearts to minds and moves your audience to action.

Our Creative Process

At Chimaeric Motion Pictures, we start by listening. Our discovery process begins with a conversation focused on intimately understanding you and your brand. Our job is to take your voice and your passion and translate that into moving images. We focus our creative energy on developing content to amplify your story through narrative, cinematic storytelling.

Even the most unassuming businesses have something unique to say. Everyone has a story to tell. We’re here to help you uncover and share that story with the world.

The Chimaeric Difference

With today’s video technology, almost anyone can make pretty videos. But a pretty video doesn’t help your marketing campaign if it lacks the ability to emotionally connect to your intended audience.

We create content that moves audiences to action. Our background in filmmaking trained us to obsess over details because it’s the details that create a rich, cinematic experience for the viewer. You don’t always see the details, but you can always feel them. Our unrelenting commitment to precision fuels every video production we create.

We have worked on a broad range of projects, including live television, independent films, big budget commercials, and small crew documentaries. This industry experience gives us insight on how to adapt our approach to the needs and budgets of each project. We have successfully produced content with a single crew member, crews of 35-plus, and everything in between. Our full-time staff and army of professionally trained freelancers give us the flexibility to scale our productions so your story receives the attention and resources it deserves.

Speaking of resources, we use the same cutting-edge camera and post-production technology used in Hollywood. Our investment in high-quality tools paired with our timeless storytelling means your videos will remain relevant for years to come. In fact, some of our earliest clients are still using content we created for them almost 10 years ago. Working with us is a solid, long-term investment in your brand.

Engage Your Audience Through Video

Humans are hardwired to engage with stories. It’s in our DNA. Long before written language was a thing, our ancestors passed along knowledge and traditions through storytelling. That soft spot for a good story remains in us today.

With the content overload of our “always-connected” lives, quality storytelling is more important now than ever in order to break through the noise. Superior, story-driven content is what is watched, shared, and remembered. Regardless of how much changes, our connection to story remains.

Think of your favorite movie. No matter how many times you’ve watched it, it still makes you feel a certain way. Its impact is timeless. That is the power of motion pictures. And that is what gets us out of bed every morning. We exist to harness that power for you.
