About Regular Guy Creative:
Regular Guy Creative is a video production company based in Collinsville, IL. We serve clients by providing a full-range of production services including videography, editing, sound design and motion graphics. We have everything needed to take a story from a simple idea all the way through to a finished product that can be shared with the world.
We place particular emphasis on serving the needs of small businesses, non-profits and public sector organizations that often do not have the budgets to afford the services of larger production companies or the staff capacity to produce quality content independently.
We understand that not every project needs fancy bells and whistles, such as drone flyovers, long tracking steadicam shots, or music video style editing – things that all look really cool, but ultimately add considerable cost to a project. We also believe that not every project requires multiple crew members to deliver a quality product. We operate under the belief that sometimes…maybe even most of the time…simple is better.
That notion is part and parcel with everything we do. It’s who we are. It’s what we call…the Regular Guy way of doing things.
We are fully cognizant that we don’t have all the tools, resources and manpower that many of the other production houses in town have at their disposal. But we don’t view that as a handicap. If anything, we see it as an advantage. We are smaller, more flexible, and don’t have nearly as many costs to recuperate in the course of doing business. We are in turn able to pass this savings on to clients, delivering quality products at a fraction of the price.
But, while simplicity is our mantra, our approach is completely professional. We utilize 4K cameras for all videography, and professional quality microphones and recorders for sound. We also have all the additional tools necessary to make sure the final product looks and sounds top notch. Combine that with years of audio and video production experience and a passion for elevating brands through compelling storytelling, and you have a winning combination that will make your organization look and sound great!
