Button Up Productions has a passion for the creative and seeking others to share it with.
HOW WE STARTED
In 2013, our co-founders, Daniel Button and Carl Garcia, were sick of the waiting game. After deciding their careers would have to be taken into their own hands, they decided to make a web series. Nine months of saving and equipment purchasing later, their baby (project) was born. While the result wasn’t exactly what they had been hoping for, the process proved to be an enjoyable challenge.
Daniel grew up more interested in being Indiana Jones or a Jedi knight than the day-to-day life of a regular human. However, upon discovering these were not high paying careers (Jedi knights evidently do not make a huge salary), he decided on the next best thing; the job of making these movies. After shooting little projects, eventually, he kept shooting bigger and bigger projects and setting his sights on greater and greater goals. Carl Garcia shared this love of creating, and eventually shared the enjoyment of the process, and so Button Up Productions was born.
WHO WE ARE
Button Up Productions is an independently owned and operated video production company in Los Angeles, California. Our company produces innovative and superior depictions of how you want to be represented as an actor, musician or business. We are a full-service company, guiding you from pre-production – including concept development, location scouting and scheduling – throughout production, and the entire editing process with color sound mix and final edit. Our main goal is to make feature-length independent feature films, incorporating all that we have learned up until now. By working on so many different types of projects, we have gained a unique perspective on storytelling that we channel through the camera.
WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT
When we noticed how many incredible artists surrounded us, without the right means to display that talent, our passion was discovered. We get inspired every day by content we see being created and hope to inspire people in the same way with our voice.
Using the latest equipment, we create distinct demonstrations of your uniqueness, whether it be as an individual, or as a company. We want to work with you to create a final product that is professional grade, but that was also fun to make. When you love what you’re doing, it shows in your work, and we understand that content is key.
We like to think outside the box here, so don’t be prepared for your standard, boring ideas. If you come to Button Up Productions, we want something that sets you apart, because that’s what sets us apart. We value hard work, laughter, and ingenuity, and aim to bring all three of these to every project we take on to make sure you’re getting the best result possible.
WHAT WE ARE DOING
Our latest project is a feature thriller to be directed by Christopher Burgart of CLB Films. We completed principal photography and acted as cinematographer and AC with a small crew. We prefer a small crew as it gives us more opportunity to be detail oriented and have more control over our work.
